Advice about Subcontracting? Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this forum, and still trying to determine whether a career as a virtual assistant is right for me. It occured to me that perhaps the best way to find out and get a feel for the field was to start by doing work for other, more experienced VAs. At the moment, however, my access to up-to-date software is very limited, so I'm unsure as to how to proceed. Before I decide to look for any subcontracting work, I'd like to hear from any of you about your personal experiences as or with VA subcontractors. I'm particularly interested in the qualifications and software profiencies virtual assistants look for.

I am on a number of VA teams and the software varies. It really depends on what services you plan on offering as to what software you would need to be knowledgeable with.

Hello everyone,

My name is Deepak, a recent member.

Our small team was contracting for a NY based cruise company and they had to cancel our project due to financial considerations. If you have any VA admin work that can be done offshore, please let me know. We use Live Person, MS Office, Photoshop and Google Docs and offer excellent rates and can provide references.
