Sometimes leaving your warm, cozy home to brave the wintry cold of Alaska and look for job positions listed at various firms seems simply impossible. Well there’s good news for you then – you don’t have to! Even positions you thought might be impossible to do from home, such as being an assistant, are possible in the virtual world. Here are some tips on how to go about finding something that suits you.
Firstly, you’ve most likely completed some kind virtual assistant training course and are looking for a job. This is probably the easiest part of your whole virtual career and there are two main places to start looking for work: online websites that you pay to sign up with and online websites that are free to sign up with.
If you have signed up with a free website then there are a few things you can expect from it. It will most likely be very simple for you to navigate through it, find jobs listed that appeal to you and then apply for them. Once you get the job, however, you can expect the site to charge a small fee – which is how the site makes any money from it. And it is more than likely that you may not be reaching, or getting exposed to, the kind of employer you want to attract.
The free sites normally have smaller, part-time jobs that they are looking for. These usually need to be completed within a short period of time within a certain framework of quality execution. If you are new to the virtual assistant world in Alaska, then chances are you’d like to start off with a few of the small fry and work your way up to the bigger ones.
If this doesn’t appeal too much to you there are other ways to go about finding the kind of employment that suits you best. In Alaska there are big markets in literally everything from fishing exports to big oil extraction and industry. You can look at some of the bigger businesses that are advertising online or you can do a keyword search for an industry you’d like to apply in.
And then, of course, you can always consider paying a small fee on a job site that will then allow your resume to be viewed by literally hundreds of Alaskan businesses a day. If you think about it for a minute, the employers and businesses that post positions also must pay a considerable annual fee and thus will only post jobs that are more dedicated and long-term in nature. This is sometimes a better option if you’re looking for serious virtual employment with other benefits that a free site would not provide. These are some of the most important and basic tips to finding job positions listed online in Alaska that suit you.
