I’m not really sure why they are called virtual assistants or VA’s because there is nothing virtual about them. They are real people who provide a really helpful service, although often from a great distance.
If you have never heard of virtual assistants, then the clue is in the last part of the above sentence. Virtual Assistants provide assistance over the Internet.
On the lowest level, this might be Tweeting (or Retweeting) a list of interested parties, which does not include writing original material, and at the top end it would or might involve writing and posting on behalf of the employer.
I’m sure you get my drift by now. Anyway, the point is that after talking with a friend the other evening, I thought that I might see how much support there would be if I launched such a service.
How many people might require such assistance, and how many people would like to be considered for the role?
The job would suite those who would rather work from home or need to. You will know whether that is you without my having to spell it out. The skill most required for virtual assistants is knowledge of and access to the Internet, but a close second will be an ability to read and write in English. It may be more difficult to find positions for those who only speak other languages, but not impossible, I think, but that will depend on how far I can publicise this venture. The more interest from buyers and sellers, the more encouragement I shall feel to put more time into the project.
So, if you are vaguely interested in the concept, please let me know using (preferably) my contact email, or the comment box below. Registration is open to people of all nationalities and is non-committal.
If this is not for you, but you know people who might be interested in being virtual assistants, please pass this message on.
In any case, please take a minute to LIKE and SHARE this page below.
Thanks for your time.
All the best,
