Indeed, virtual assistants are quickly replacing traditional secretaries and in-office personal or administrative assistants but what are they and why?
A virtual assistant (VA) may be an employee, freelancer, or independent contractor who works online and performs a variety of tasks to help individuals or businesses. Virtual Assistants offer a lot of services that a traditional in-house office assistant would usually handle. Such as transaction management, database management, calendar management, content writing, graphic design and a lot more.
Virtual Assistants have become increasingly popular among employees and employers. From 2005 to 2012, the number of telecommunicating employees in the U.S. grew by 79.7% with a steady growth rate up to last year. The number of self-employed workers is even growing to freelancers now for over 34% of the total U.S. workforce.
Therefore employers have to make sure that the Virtual Assistants they employ are competent enough for the job.
