looking for job

One of the biggest reasons why many people across the globe are choosing to be VA’s is owing to the fact that this is a job which allows you to be your own boss and work from home. Unlike in other assistant positions where you need to be at the constant beck and call of your employer, this position allows you to maintain your own autonomy and do online no more than you are being paid to do.

This is an especially good job in case you happen to be someone who hates taking orders from others and if you happen to do your best work when you are in solitude and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The chief tasks which a virtual assistant is expected to do online is-

  • Research work
  • Writing tasks
  • Tutoring
  • Transcribing
  • Programming
  • Desktop Publishing
  • Video/Audio Editing
  • Data Entry
  • Graphic Design
  • Answering Calls
  • Booking Appointments
  • Tech support
  • Social Media Management
