If you have worked as an office administrator, executive assistant, or feel like you have the necessary skills to provide quality office support then becoming a virtual assistant may be for you. Using virtual assistants is a growing trend among entrepreneurs, small business owners, and even larger companies.
With a virtual assistant businesses save money by outsourcing labor to hourly home based employees. This allows them to delegate work more efficiently by relying on VA’s in busy times and saving money by not having a full time employee.
As a virtual assistant your home office should be equipped with the same capabilities as a standard office and you must have a reliable high-speed internet connection. You should also know how to use standard word processing and data management programs.
There are two ways that you can go about getting a job as a virtual assistant. You can use job search sites/freelance job boards to apply for available VA jobs or you can sign up with a virtual assistant staffing company and rely on them to provide you with job leads.
Either way there are plenty of opportunities for qualified individuals to provide office support from their homes.
