One of the growing home-based jobs in the freelance industry are virtual office assistant jobs. These kind of jobs are generally involve doing administrative work such as data entry, customer service, email marketing, research, taking calls, answering emails, arranging meeting schedules and even doing repetitive SEO jobs. Virtual assistant jobs are generally more of secretarial or clerical in nature.
I haven’t tried doing virtual assistant jobs since I started finding freelance jobs online but I remember applying to some of these jobs (and getting rejected for some reason).
Virtual assistant jobs are growing each day and so are people who want to do these jobs – or part-time. Most virtual assistant jobs require working closely with clients online rather than having a prepared set of TODO tasks. This line of job is very competitive, as many people with basic computer knowledge already qualify well for this job.
