How are you? I sincerely hope you are all staying healthy and doing your best to get through these uncertain days. For me, I’m taking it one day at a time.

Believe it or not, those of us here at VOT have been busy because not every industry is being shut down by the coronavirus. Some are thriving and hiring so we’re here to help however we can.

Bars, restaurants and attractions are shuttered, but other industries are seeing a jump in business. Medical and insurance organizations, education and tutoring businesses and retailers who offer delivery are hiring staff to meet the growing demand brought on by coronavirus. As a result, you’ll find immediate-need opportunities in this newsletter.

I’ve included links so you can get your application in quickly.

I’d also like to thank those of you who were able to apply and start working so quickly last week including long-time VOT Virtual Assistant Kelly Peterson who allowed me to share her name and information.

Given the current pandemic situation, these positions are short term and move very quickly so please do not delay if you are able.

Apply with your VOT profile and website!

Be healthy and happy.
