What is a Virtual Assistant?

March 14, 2009

A virtual assistant, or VA, is an administrative professional who outsources his or her administrative talents and experience to small business, individuals and corporations for a long or short-term period.  Most virtual assistants have several years of experience in the corporate world, and bring to their business the training and experience accumulated during those years. 

Many administrators who leave the corporate world to start their own virtual assistant business do so because they are motivated to achieve and want to influence how their talents are used and developed.  Virtual assistants are known for continually developing their administrative skills, business knowledge, and keeping up with leading edge technology to provide you, the client, with  professional and reliable virtual service.
