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.


A work from home job can be any position that does not require you to be in an office. There a wide range of work from home jobs. Some companies offer opportunities for employees in traditional roles to work remotely for all or some of their workweek. These jobs often use technology for meetings, assignments, and collaboration. This practice is called telecommuting. Other work from home opportunities may include jobs such as customer service representatives for which companies will hire remote workers, or part-time virtual assistants to manage work which does not require a physical presence in the office.
Chat agent jobs are good for those that want to work at home but need a non-phone job because of noise and distractions in their homes. These customer service professionals may do tech support, answer billing questions or sell products via email, text or chat. However, chat jobs can also be combined with call center jobs or offered by the same places that advertise for call center work. So if you are looking for a remote, online chat job, it’s a good idea to browse call center employers as well.

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.

Looking for a virtual receptionist with a professional and caring speaking voice to answer phones, screen clients, and schedule appointments for a psychology private practice that helps individuals, couples, and families with various issues. Assistant will be responsible for scheduling for 2 -3 psychologists with a call volume ranging from 5 - 20 calls per week. It would be helpful to have an understanding of HIPAA and confidentiality. Must be able to answer and return forwarded calls between 9am and 6pm Monday through Friday. Assistant is responsible for pleasantly answering the phone, answering questions about the practice, engaging the potential client with kindness, completing a brief client intake form, and scheduling that first appointment. Assistant will have access to a virtual calendar and will be required to text, email, or call should there be an urgent message from clients who need a response during hours of operation. Must be non-judgmental, compassionate, and timely. Work would begin asap after training on client intake process, confidentiality, and virtual calendar sharing. Assistant can expect to work approximately 5 hours or less per week. Completed call log/time sheet will be used to track workflow. Nice part-time job for a person who has the flexibility to manage a few phone calls and scheduling around their other tasks. This is the primary need and responsibility however, additional hours are available for business development support and initiative. 

Once a customer has made a purchase, it's the job of an implementation specialist to help those customers with product onboarding so they learn the inner-workings of their product and avoid any immediate technical difficulties. While this position is usually in-office, it can easily be made remote once you're properly trained in the various products.
Often confused with Telenet Marketing, which is not the same thing, Telenetwork has been around since 1993. This is an employee-based job offering about 25 hours a week at $8 to $11 an hour for the remote technical support. This position would be the equivalent of a helpdesk technician. You would be performing duties ranging from resetting modems to troubleshooting computer problems. You may use a VoIP but you will need a hardwired computer or laptop.
