How Do You Become a Virtual Assistant?

To become a virtual assistant, you need a high school diploma, though many virtual assistants also have an associate or bachelor’s degree. Many companies prefer candidates with experience in administrative roles that required similar skills, such as filing, scheduling, organizing, and responding to emails and phone calls. To cultivate your administrative skills, obtain an entry-level position in an office. You may choose to develop specialized skills, such as managing cloud services or social media accounts, to make yourself stand out in the job market. Once you are proficient with standard office computer programs and have mastered other office assistant skills, seek virtual assistant positions with a company or through an agency that staffs virtual assistants.
