If you’re reading this it’s because you’re looking for a job.
Let me jump on my soapbox.
Becoming a virtual assistant is NOT another “job”. When you work as a VA (virtual assistant) you’re working with clients and the last time I checked, when you have clients you’ve got yourself your own little biz-ness.
In any case here are a few places you can look to find your next client.
Virtual Assistant Forums
If you’re looking to become a virtual assistant this should be your first stop. Sign up for free to the Virtual Assistant Forums and you’ll be able to search for open virtual assistant jobs, post a question in the forums, or run a search in the shops for learning tools on how to get started in the VA business. Once you’ve created a website for your virtual assistant business you can submit your site to the forums and get seen by prospects looking to hire.
Hire My Mom
HireMyMom.com helps stay-at-home moms with at home work positions. HireMyMom.com has a yearly membership fee of $99 and a membership criteria that you must meet. They will do all the marketing for you.
eaHelp is one of the leading virtual assistant staffing firms in the United States. They source high quality executive virtual assistants and place them with clients in the U.S. and globally. Check out their careers page to see if they’re hiring. Be ready for a grueling interview process.
Zirtual is another great option to work for a well known virtual assistant staffing firm that finds clients for you. They work solely with U.S. based virtual assistants so if you live outside of the U.S. this company isn’t for you. Be ready for a grueling interview process.
There is an option to search for jobs on LinkedIn. I recommend going into the advanced search area and type in virtual assistant. In general there isn’t a lot of traction for the term “virtual assistant” in the search query but sometimes you can find some great opportunities. Before you apply for the job make sure your LinkedIn profile is completely filled out. In addition make sure you’ve read my blog post on how to find clients using LinkedIn by clicking here.
Virtual Assistantville is a premium virtual assistant directory. You do not need to have a website to be listed directly. All you need to do is sign up, select a package and finally create your listing. You can upload a logo if you have one and a tagline and you’ve got a mini-website. The purpose of this directory is to help potential clients find you.
