What does it mean to be a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant is a person who is working remotely as an assistant for the company, executive or a busy professional. The purpose of a Virtual Assistant is to handle repetitive tasks that are taking too much time off the client's schedule. Other than performing small admin, marketing and organizational tasks, a great VA is also keeping track of their schedule and reminding them of their tasks on a daily basis. Something like Donna from the Suits. Remote work means that you don't have to work in an office, 100% of your work is based on your laptop. This means that you can work from wherever you bring your laptop. Furthermore, most Virtual Assistants have flexible working time which means that no one will ask you when exactly are you working, as long as you get your tasks done on time.
Examples of tasks for a VA that you will learn during this course:
1. We need a new supplier for office material. Please find out what company is the best match for us
based on the number of the products they are offering, as well as the pricing, location and reviews
2. Please use Canva to design posts for our social media, and create 3 Facebook posts including
creative, copywriting and hashtags
3. Arrange a meeting in Google Calendar for team members on Tuesday 3 PM UK time via Zoom
4. Keep track of the director's private activities, and remind him of his wife's birthday, offer to order
a gift online for her.
This is a long-term career path of a VA
