Virtual AssistantFilipino Virtual Assistants – Virtual assistants utilize today’s technology to deliver their services and communicate with clients by working remotely. A virtual assistant’s (VA) core practice and specialty is that of administration. Some virtual assistants diversify; offering additional specialties that fall under various other categories, such as marketing, website development or maintenance, creative and technical services, etc. In addition, many VAs have target niches—types of professionals they support, and those include real estate professionals, coaches (business, life, executive, etc.), speakers, authors, executive and non-executive directors and CEOs, medical and legal professionals, and consultants to name a few prominent ones. Most recently, VAs are tasked with social media monitoring and the scheduling of social media posts for personalities, brands and businesses.

Virtual assistants come from a variety of business backgrounds, but most have several years administrative experience earned in the real (non-virtual) business world working in occupations such as administrative assistant, executive assistant, secretary, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, real estate assistant, office manager, etc. Filipino Virtual Assistants
