Virtual Administrative Assistant Opportunities

Remote Administrative Assistant Workshop

Are you interested in remote flexible work and expanding your career opportunities? We can help! We are holding in-person workshops to walk you through the steps to get to work as a Virtual Assistant.

What is a virtual assistant? A virtual assistant (VA) can provide support for a number of businesses or industries. A VA may keep staff members’ calendars, schedule meetings or events, and take messages for staff members. A VA can assist with general office management such as ordering supplies, onboarding new staff members, and managing various employee needs. In some cases, VAs can perform accounting, billing, and payroll functions as well. These are just a few examples of the work VAs might perform remotely (from home or another remote work center).

This workshop is for anyone who has thought about administrative assistant work or has already done it. It is an opportunity to talk through the options and help you decide on the right approach for you. We will provide you with the steps to start training in the skills you will need to become an administrative assistant BEFORE the workshop. All experience levels are welcome!

Workshop Information: Seats are limited at each workshop. Registration required.
