VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS: THE WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW
First, let’s make this clear. We do not charge fees. We do not have an application fee. We do not require a membership deposit. You do not need to pay an activation fee, handling fee or training fee. Anyone may apply and be hired if you have the equipment, skills, education and experience to work as a professional virtual assistant. And just in case you missed it, there are no fees. Zero. Zilch. So, please do not confuse VOT with a fee based job service. VOT services are free to the job seeker and free to the employer!

- Word Processing and Data Entry/Clerical
- Bookkeeping, Payroll and Accounting
- Medical Billing & Coding, Transcription and Typing

- General Office Work, Office Administration
- Customer Support, Sales and Account Management

VOT (Virtual Office Temps) is a staffing and recruiting firm. Projects come to us from employers in need, we send Virtual Assistants to them to complete those projects. We’ve been in operation since 2001. In fact, we were one of the first virtual assistant staffing organizations online! We’ve built a fine reputation and our virtual assistants have completed thousands of jobs and projects.

Our virtual assistants work in all sorts of capacities. We need home based staff who can type, prepare legal documents, do medical billing, complete presentations, do desktop publishing, make travel arrangements, provide office support, assist executives, handle computer coding and programming projects and so much more. If you have a great business or office skill, we could use it! Our virtual assistants usually make anywhere from $8.00 to $75.00 per hour depending on the project. (More for specialized expertise).
Why hire a virtual assistant? Because it’s much easier than hiring a full time staff member, much cheaper than going to a traditional employment agency and much smarter than not completing the project at all because you couldn’t find qualified staff! It’s a no brainer.
For virtual assistants who wish to document their skills and qualifications, we offer an official Certification Program. Employers can feel confident that they are hiring a virtual assistant who is knowledgeable, skilled and meets all industry standards.
Our virtual assistants work from home regardless of their location. To qualify, you MUST have certain skills, programs and equipment – most of which you probably already have, or can get for free or at little cost.
You simply must start with an excellent Virtual Assistant Resume or online portfolio. Your resume should be accomplishment based and focused on your area of expertise. Since you will not get the benefit of a face to face meeting with the hiring employer, your resume MUST do all the talking by highlighting your career accomplishments.
