There are other adjectives I can think of but I won’t use them here.
I saw a post advertising for a Female Virtual Assistant/Content Writer that says, and I quote:
You’ll be writing about 3-4 250-350 articles per hour based on the keywords I will specify.
I am going to expect you work full time (only for me and not anyone else) (my emphasis)
You have to have experience in article writing.
Amongst other things. The ‘virtual assistant’ had to be living in the Phillipines too. I left a comment but not sure if it will get published.
I don’t know about the tax laws in that country but where I live if providing services for only one person I would be seen as their employee because the bulk (or all) of my income came from them. That would be a problem for both the client (employer) and myself.
Virtual Assistants are self-employed business owners who provide services to a number of clients but it seems that many ‘clients’ still don’t get that and think they have to have the VA entirely to themself.
The majority of VAs are experienced at juggling many things and often had to report to several people in the corporate world. They are used to organising themselves and prioritising jobs. Before I started my own business I was reporting to 8 Project Officers and was their only PA – fun by busy job and all 8 Project Officers thought they were the chief! But I managed and thrived on the busy-ness. Most VAs I know are the same and love the variety.
