Virtual Assistant Jobs


If you have worked as an office administrator, executive assistant, or feel like you have the necessary skills to provide quality office support then becoming a virtual assistant may be for you. Using virtual assistants is a growing trend among entrepreneurs, small business owners, and even larger companies.

With a virtual assistant businesses save money by outsourcing labor to hourly home based employees. This allows them to delegate work more efficiently by relying on VA’s in busy times and saving money by not having a full time employee.

As a virtual assistant your home office should be equipped with the same capabilities as a standard office and you must have a reliable high-speed internet connection. You should also know how to use standard word processing and data management programs.

There are two ways that you can go about getting a job as a virtual assistant. You can use job search sites/freelance job boards to apply for available VA jobs or you can sign up with a virtual assistant staffing company and rely on them to provide you with job leads.

Either way there are plenty of opportunities for qualified individuals to provide office support from their homes.

    Good luck! I have been searching for legitimate virtual assistant work for years and have yet to find a company that either (a) gives you actual work after signing up and passing all their tests; or (b) does not charge a fee to look for work on their job boards.

    Are there any on-line jobs you would know of that would hire from the Philippines? I have recently resigned from work as HR Officer in order to go home to our province and take care of my brother who suffered a stroke. I would certainly need some additional income to augment my financially-challenged situation. Thank you so much.

They do all the work for you in finding the right jobs for you even easy jobs that requires no experiences and all these jobs are work at home jobs. sign up as a member you only have to pay a small fee $19.95 one time fee for them to find a home job for you money back guaranteed.

They are in the business to finding you a legit job working at home making good money no scams. I would try them

    It is so despicable that you are trying to scam people on the very site where people are going to find information to avoid just that!!! These are folks that want to work for a honest living, and are looking for legitimate avenues to find work from home employment. Legitimate employment opportunities will not have a scamming finder’s fee associated with them. SHAME ON YOU!!! :-(

    Tess says:
    July 29th, 2016 at 4:41 pm

    Legitimate jobs should never ask for money, not even $5.00 for training. Multiply that 100x’s “X” number of uninformed job seekers and that translates to a LOT of money. It’s the despicable scam equivalent “Secret Social Security loopholes that will make you rich” for only $2.99….and they email you a link to an ebook or a cheaply xeroxed 20 page booklet. They just kick back and let the dollars roll in. NEVER pay for any kind of job recruitment or training…NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Mar says:
    October 25th, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    Wow, you’re obviously scamming on behalf of this company. Work from home jobs can be found independently if you’re able to put in the time and effort to do some research. If help is needed, plenty of regular employment agencies (like you might use if seeking employment in a traditional setting) cover work from home options as well, and they do not charge a fee in order to find you a job. I think it’s despicable that some individuals and companies are willing to leach off of people who are probably already struggling financially since they’re searching for work. You should never have to pay a fee to find or start work (except fees for certain certifications and background checks for particular positions, but those are conducted through a separate and verifiable organisation).

    I have been searching the Net, but never find anyone who IS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT with clients. I’m not talking about working for companies like Alpine, Live Ops, etc., as a customer service rep, but actually having your own administrative business serving start-up or established businesses/companies with word processing, account management, admin asst. type duties. SO am wondering if all the how-to-become a VA info is a scam within itself.

    Hi there,
    I am and have been a successful Virtual Assistant for the past 16 years. I trained with a Virtual Assistant company and then got my first client through them. All of my subsequent clients were referrals based on my first client. If you are truly a trained VA, you can find work via and and a variety of other sources.

    Great hourly paying? If $10 hr is great, and then only based on “talk time” without pay for duties necessary outside of the actual phone call with the client’s customer. Hence, a 5 hour work day could net 3 hours talk time…or less.

    I would like to know if there any of these jobs going in Saudi Arabia, where I live.

    Women are only 5% of the work force here, and most jobs I could apply for and do with my eyes closed specifically state only men can apply.

    I was an Exec Assistant to a CEO before I stopped to have my family, I loved it, and want to get back to using my brain, skills and earning some cash too!

    Can anyone tell me where I could find a V/A job here??

    I think being a Virtual Assistant is a great career. I was an Executive Assistant at a chain of hotels in the Caribbean, spent long exhausting hours at work then had to drive home.
    What are the opportunities for introducing this fairly new type of business in this region?


    Sarah says:
    December 23rd, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    Check out – great organization that helps folks start and maintain a virtual assistant business. And when you are working alone at home, it helps to have others doing the same to chat with about joys and frustrations from time to time. When I was involved I had a great relationship with another VA in the organization who lived in Singapore. It often let me take rush jobs that she could help complete once I needed some sleep.

    I was a member at the inception of the organization many years ago, but got a position with a political campaign (tech work online) and then another and let my own VA business fall to the side. As I live alone in a very rural environment, I eventually found I needed an outside job for a while to interact more with other people. So for my own mental health, I now work for an equine program helping kids with mental health issues. :) Still, I loved working as a virtual assistant and loved having the support of at the time, so thought I would share that info. Figure I will go back to it in a few years when I ‘retire.” Being a VA is actually running your own business for the most part, so they are there to help with website and marketing ideas, emotional support, etc. – Just like any organization for any profession.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Karly: Please don’t take this as condescending, but have you read any of the suggestions posted here? I know it seems daunting at times to have to actually study some of the material and learn how to do something. You will benefit from all the gained knowledge! It takes an effort on your part to find the jobs that will suit you and your particular knowledge. Don’t be discouraged before you even give one of the opportunities and chance. Find something that you think will interest you. See what skills you need to do the job. Study these skill sets, either online or through your local community collage. If you need software to learn the skills, get a student discounted copy or use free software downloaded online (that’s what I do!). Please just don’t give up before you give yourself a chance. You can do this if you work at it, and isn’t that what you are looking for, a job?

    It is the same old story people out there with all the heart and desire and would be excellent employees`s but no company wants to take the time, or effort to train them. I believe a lot of businesses lose out on someone who would benefit their company because of this narrow-minded attitude. I have a masters in business administration in accounting and finance but no hands on experience as of yet except what I do for my husbands company and have been looking for employment for almost 2 years.

    Sadly…college students are finding out that the career path they spent tens’s of thousands of dollars on, are not available, or don’t pay off enough to pay student loans. I have told my kids to put off college for a couple of years and work in the school of hard knocks. Real life experience is better training for finding the source of studies needed for a profitable job. I know few people that ended up working in their chosen career path when they started school at 18. Who knows what the world is like at that age.

    Special note to Egzon… won’t fall in your lap. Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb over night. It took him over 1000 attempts and then the light only lasted a few hours. He never looked as his work as failure…the looked at them as opportunities to improve the next time. Reading your response sounds like you are not ready for the responsibilities of work. You may need to start at the bottom and work your way up. Many successful people have started that way. I wish I had my youth back with the wisdom of the ages.

    I hear you!! After graduating from college with a degree in computer programming (3.9 gpa), I could not find a job because I didn’t have any experience. Apparently, the 22 years I spent as an executive secretary/executive assistant didn’t mean a thing and neither did the 150+ programs I wrote in college. I finally spent the big bucks and had a resume professionally done, in hopes this would bring me more interviews. Still no luck. You’re right — the people who do the hiring are missing out on some really great employees!

    Your article is off base by far! The VA industry is about having your own business, not working through a staffing agency! I don’t even know of any agencies, unless you’re referring to a team of VA’s who subcontract. As a VA now for nearly seven years, I have grown my business as a well respected contractor, partnering with clients long term (years). For those starting out, consider joining the International Virtual Assistants Assiciation (, where you’ll learn from seasoned VA’s HOW to grow your business. You’ll also have access to the Request for Proposal (RFP) system where prospective clients post jobs. There are many other benefits, too numerous to mention.
    If the writer of this article had done some research, it would had quickly become apparent staffing for jobs is the wrong direction entirely!

    Ha! I just wrote a note suggesting folks check out IVAA before scrolling down and reading yours. I was Googling info for a friend who was kind of forced into retirement and needs some extra income when I found this site and had to read the section about VAs. And then, having been an IVAA member had to comment.

I am in a wheelchair and a lot of people won’t hire me, even though I am intellectually sound. I love being on the phone, and typing, I just am not sure what to do in this job. Thank you for reading this and possibly helping me. Elizabeth Haskell huggles777 @ yahoo .com

    I disagree with you both, I think for people who want to do this kind of work, but don’t want to stress about finding clients, those who need work today and who can’t afford to wait until they have grown a client base would benefit from using an agency to find VA work. They do have to be willing to get less pay because they are using a broker to find them the work, but this is a valid way to become a VA. Just because your experience is different doesn’t invalidate this way…

    For crying out aloud…everyone has skills and experiences that are useful in the work environment. Even you have been a stay at home Mum for a number of years, you can still prioritise your tasks, work within strick deadlines, delegate duties, and juggle multiple and sometimes conflicting priorities!

    Just becuase someone has said that you don’t have a ‘job’ doesn’t mean you don’t have worthwhile skills and abilities that you can bring to the workplace. It’s called ‘life skills’

    As for being a virtual assistant – the main think is being organised and organising others. I have been a Executive PA for 15 years and that has always been the main thing!

    Can you herd cats?! Then you too can be a PA!!

    Susha, thats just silly. Its unfortunately very true, but Essa has the right of it. Its a catch-22. You need the skill to get the job, but you need the job to get the skills.

    You could always say “Well.. go to a school or something to learn them.” to which a realist would reply : Not everyone is so fortunate as to come from a background where going to a school after the standard k-12 run is available, financially viable, or in some cases, even possible.

    I agree with Essa, bring back the apprenticeship systems. You take on a student, pay him a small wage, teach him your craft, and wish him well when he sets out to do it on his own. Best way to go.

    Essa says:
    April 18th, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Susha, if every company looks to hire only those with experience in their field, then eventually, a generation of people who have no skills will be in charge, because no one was willing to hire them and teach them the skills. One major problem with today’s job market. An employer should be willing to train. That is why the apprenticeship worked so well. Every generation knew every trade. We as a nation have really become an idiocracy; and we’re only going down. It’s disappointing, especially when we’ve done it to ourselves; to our younger generations; and especially when the solutions are so clear.

    Susha says:
    February 4th, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Jenise, if you don’t have the skills required, why would anyone employ you? Look for a job for which you already have the skills.
