A new Career as a VA

I think a lot of people dont realise that as you start out as a Virtual Assistant you are starting out on a new career path. You have moved on from the corporate world to try something new. People dont link careers and virtual assistants. Most people think that as virtual assistants we do typing from home to earn extra money, well this is not the case. It is about building a solid business, building a new career. Being a virtual assistant is about running a business, doing all the things any new business would do on start up and then to get up and running. You have to do marketing, networking, client liaison, debt collection, etc. It is a new career path.

Working as a virtual assistant means you would work for the company from the comfort of your own home. Virtual assistants manage projects, handle accounting, deal with correspondence, set up and cancel appointments, and deal with incoming calls. These are the basic duties – depending on the company or the person you work for, being a virtual assistant could also mean making frequent travel arrangements for others, transcribing notes, contacting clients on behalf of your employer, and handling countless other jobs that come along with working in an office setting.
