I already discussed that there are a lot of online jobs that you can do from the comforts of your own home.

Virtual Assistants or VA’s are one such legit online job that you can apply for. If you have minimal technical skill and acceptable English communications skills, you will fit right in.

You can learn as you go and your employer will actually train you as your tasks get more technical. Here are some of the tasks that you can expect to do when you are a VA:

  • Write articles / Spin articles
  • Submit Said articles to article directories
  • Develop a link network or mini net
  • Post to Wordpress blogs
  • FTP files to sites
  • Chat or talk with technical support
  • Customer service

These are just some of the tasks that you will have to master in order to be a good assistant. But be warned that you will probably need to pick up more technical skills as you go along.

The important thing to note here is that you will always be trained before you do certain tasks that seems to be beyond your skill. So stay positive and enjoy the ride as an assistant.

With a can do attitude and a thirst for knowledge, you can earn more as a VA, more than you are earning in the office right now.

Oh, before I forget. You can apply as a VA via oDesk and other Freelancing sites. I personally found my employer via Craigslist Manila.

Just beware of scammers and stingy employers.

It is not as easy to spot a scammer or bad employer right away, so be aware and be ready to protect yourself at any moment.
