Virtual Assistant or VA as many seasoned freelance internet expert provider calls it, is one of the most in-demand online jobs. I started working as virtual assistant and although, my job title has improved, I still consider myself as VA. Employers/business owners are turning to outsourcing because it does save them money and over head expenses. Also, it is easier for them to find a skillful worker online, instead of looking for someone within their vicinity. Outsourcing freelance jobs such as oDesk and Elance has become great portals for employers in search of virtual assistants.
Virtual Assistant Employments are not hard to find; however, you need to have the ability to do the job. Employers’ needs varies greatly, some employers might need a VA who is capable of just doing regular appointment setting and phone calls. At times, an employer might need a virtual assistant who is knowledgeable in the technical field. (Read my post: How to be a virtual assistant).
