Virtual Assistant Jobs

Virtual Assistants exist in many organizations across the globe as well

as in private home offices. What is a Virtual Assistant? What do

Virtual Assistants do? A VA is an assistant who works in a different

location than the person he-she is assisting. This worker may

type forms or answer emails, make phone calls, set appointments,

make/cancel reservations and much more. So you can think of a

virtual assistant as being much like an office worker who doesn’t

work in a traditional office setting.

 

To be an assistant would require certain skill sets. This is basically

an office position where the VA would perform task to aid a

business in its operations. There may be assistants for any field and

specialty, so don’t think that because you can’t understand or work

certain computer programs, or possess certain certifications that

you wouldn’t qualify: a VA could be hired to perform data entry

tasks and send and open emails. The tasks are controlled by the

person requesting them.

 

Here are specific skill sets successful VAs possess;

  • Proficiency in English (unless otherwise specified)
  • Database entry and data collection
  • Cloud document management
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Social media management
  • Graphic design/Photoshop
  • WordPress HTML/CSS
  • Blog article writing
  • Calendar management
  • Web research
  • Database management

This position may be a good fit for anyone desiring work at home, or

who have previous experience in an office setting. You can pick the

assignments you choose to work and create your own schedule. If

you often have little ones around you, a job that does not require

phone conversation would be ideal.
