With the internet becoming more prevalent by the day, more and more people are jumping aboard the virtual assistant bandwagon, which is quite interesting. In the past week alone, our company has had over 5 calls from individuals inquiring about working virtually. It’s a new phenomenon that will surely take off.
My opinion is that the influx of virtual assistant positions available will slightly help stabilize the job market (by a small margin). Virtual assistant positions eliminate the location aspect of the job equation, which is often a blockade for people searching for new jobs. Also, they cut costs down for employers, which will lead to increased profits, more stable businesses and ultimately an improved economy. Far-fetched, I know, but it’s quite conceivable.
I can see virtual assistant positions becoming popular for the marketing and SEO industry as most work can be performed virtually. We shall see.
