Virtual assistant jobs can often be fun and interesting. You never know what you may be doing. Ultimately, your tasks will depend on the client/company you work for. Some things may include customer service, social media, writing, data entry, or even research.The following is a list of 21 companies that hire remote virtual assistants.
