You probably have seen online advertisements about Virtual Assistants whether it is about VA hiring advertisements or training and seminars for VA’s. Curios of what a VA is? Well, Virtual Assistants are the modern personal assistants of people who are busy with their companies, businesses and even personal agendas. They do the same tasks as PA’s like organizing files, scheduling appointments, typing and documenting, email handling and the lists could go on. The only difference is that a Virtual Assistant works remotely from his/her employer and their means of communication could be through the Internet, phone calls or fax.
