A virtual assistant job is a very specialized form of customer service. Though it may sound obviously, a virtual assistant works remotely (or virtually)  to assist clients in a variety of tasks. What is not as obvious is what those tasks are and how the job is structured. A virtual assistant may perform research, manage email and calendars, book travel, etc. She may do this as part of a home business or may work for a company that provides virtual assistant services. However one thing to keep in mind when looking for virtual assistant work is that sometimes companies advertise what is essentially a call center job as “virtual assistant” jobs.
As you can imagine, the reviews are mixed for all of the above companies. However, these five seem to have the best reviews of most known companies that regularly hire for remote tech support. It never hurts before applying to do your research and see if they can offer you something of value. You might want to also review their requirements as technology changes all the time.  I am sure many of these companies are gearing up for Windows 10.
Just because you're not face-to-face with customers doesn't mean you can slack off on your tone and presence. This may be easier for a call center agent or support rep who gets to speak with customers on the phone. However, when your only means of communication is email or live chat, all you have to represent yourself and your reputation is your written words. So, make sure you're always getting your point across clearly and leaving no room for misinterpretation.
