Shortage of Virtual Assistants with the Right Skills

Sidney, Canada (PressExposure) April 25, 2008 -- The Virtual Assistant professional is growing annually. VAs across the globe are spending thousands of dollars on training yet online based business owners claim there is a shortage of VAs with the right skills.

“There is a mismatch between available Virtual Assistants and the business owners who want to hire them,” says Cindy Greenway of, a placement agency matching business owners with qualified Virtual Assistant support. “Despite the fact that there are many capable and eager Virtual Assistants who are struggling to find (and keep) new clients we are talking to online based business owners everyday who are struggling to find Virtual Assistants with the right skills to support their business needs. The result is an unwin-unwin situation.”

Over the last three years, Cindy Greenway and her partner Tina Forsyth, who have been in the Virtual Assistant industry a combined 10+ years, have spoken with more than 450 business owners who have told them exactly what they desperately want from their VAs and what they are willing to pay for.

To respond to this need, Greenway and Forsyth created the “Hot Virtual Skills Training Program” for Virtual Assistants who want to expand their skill set to meet the needs of these clients

“We are literally turning away work on a daily basis due to the shortage of skilled VAs” says Tina Forsyth, “Which is why we created this training program… there is so much work out there for VAs interested in working with coaches, consultants, authors, speakers and other online based businesses, so long as they have the right skills.”
