VOT / VIRTUAL OFFICE TEMPS has been online for over 10 years. During that time we have gone through many changes. In the beginning our virtual assistants completed most of their home based assignments over the telephone. Typists and Data Entry Agents often snail mailed packages of completed work to employers! Nowadays, its not uncommon for our virtual assistants to complete 100% of their work online using video conferencing, file exchange platforms, databases, social networks, virtual networks and other modern tools.
As we've grown we noticed a common request from hiring managers - they want more Virtual Assistants with technical skills and knowledge of in-demand services such as social media, virtual networking tools, database and Web/Internet, just to name a few. VOT will be meeting this demand in a few months when we launch our new certification and training units for our virtual assistants via our new website!
Certifications will cover a variety of topics and work areas, and will be free of charge for our virtual assistants. Completing a VOT certification will allow you to earn a badge that will be displayed on your VOT resume profile (or anywhere else you choose). We are currently working with top employers and technical training departments to develop the absolute best certification programs that will help our virtual assistants land jobs by meeting the demands of the virtual job market.
Simply being a good typist or data entry operator is no longer enough to land a job from home in 2012. You will need technical knowledge, home office tools, virtual skills and a website. Virtual Assistants must learn to evolve with the marketplace and we are hoping that our certification program will help you do just that.
NEW FEATURES FOR VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS
Besides the VOT Virtual Assistants certification badges, our new website will offer our virtual assistants a variety of other tools including interactive resume profiles, improved user management and job searching/applying abilities, free mobile apps and more. Employers will be provided with free access to our VA-FINDER, the biggest virtual assistant searchable directory online with the ability to contact our VA's directly for employment opportunities. The more certification badges you are able to achieve, the more notice you will get from hiring managers!
