Virtual Assistant FAQs & Job Sites

                                         Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a Virtual Assistant?

A virtual assistant is a person who provides various services to entrepreneurs or businesses from a remote location. There are a host of things that virtual assistants can do, including Social Media management, managing calendars, appointments and emails, preparing reports, personal tasks like booking hotels and restaurants, simple digital marketing tasks, and more. In short, you’re like a personal secretary working for a client from overseas.

How do the courses work?

FREELANCING COURSE

The course has 20 pre-recorded online lessons in total. You will work on these lessons and assignments for 1 month. You will send me your assignments and I will let you know what to improve. There are group live coaching sessions every Friday, 8:30 -9:30 PM Japan Time. This is also recorded in case you cannot attend. The live coaching is only once a week and then you can work on your assignments for the rest of the week. You will have 1-year access to the lessons.

How much are your courses?

FREELANCING COURSE FEES until January 2021

Philippine-based students:   Before: P7,000
                                            Promo: P2,500 (Course fee will increase from January 2021)

Japan-based and foreign countries:  ¥ 10,000 or US $ 100 (Course fee will increase from January 2021)

Can I take both courses at the same time?

I recommend starting with the Freelancing Course first so we can set up your freelancing accounts and decide on your branding. Then you are free to take the Social Media course the following month so you would know how to market yourself. This will also give you enough time to really absorb all the lessons.

But if you are a business owner and you want to improve your business’ online presence, you can go straight to the Social Media Course.

What are the requirements to qualify for the courses?

Ideally:

– At least 18yrs old. Online job platforms require at least 18yrs old to sign up.

– Valid ID (passport is highly recommended) for account verification processes.

– Bank account for online job payment set up.

If you don’t have these requirements and/or if you’re below 18, you can still benefit from the program by learning the skills first. But it would affect your course completion as you won’t be able to comply with the required assignments.

I’m a NEWBIE. I’m not a techie. What course should I take?

I recommend taking the Freelancing Course. This course is specially designed for newbies. You will be coached how to set up your Freelancing profiles and accounts and will learn the basic skills needed to start working online. 🙂

The Social Media Course is a supplement. I would recommend taking this after completing the Freelancing Course.

Will you refer me to clients after I finish the course?

Part of your assignments is to submit proposals through freelancing platforms with my guidance. My commitment is I will not leave you until you have your first client. We also have a training-to-hiring program for all of the qualified graduates.

How long will it take to get a client?

It varies. This will be the most realistic answer you can get. A lot of my students get hired before we even finish the course. But this doesn’t happen to everyone. Becoming a freelancer doesn’t happen overnight, so you would need to show constant determination in order for you to get a client. Others get hired after the course, others take months. But as long as you show your determination, you will get your client. And I will be here to help you achieve that, even after you finish your course. Again, my ultimate goal is for you to get a client.

How much will I earn in Freelancing?

Newbies (no background/no skills before taking the course) usually start with $3/hour. After taking the course, you can start with $4 since you will be learning many skills through our training. Others with existing skills can charge between $5-$10/hour depending on the services they can offer. You control how much you earn. There are full-time positions, part-time, flexible schedule, or project-based positions.

Is there a certificate after the course?

Yes, absolutely, as long as you finish the assignments within the given deadline. And you can use the certificate as your portfolio anywhere since we are DTI and BIR registered.

What is your recommended internet speed for the course?

At least 3MBPS will do. If you can get something faster, that would be better so you’re more prepared for your actual clients.

I have full-time work/class.

No worries. Our lessons are all pre-recorded and you can do them at your own pace, anytime and anywhere you are available 🙂

I didn’t go to college. Will I still be qualified?

Definitely! Freelancing doesn’t discriminate against non-college goers. It’s open to everyone as long as you have the determination!

Do I need to be fluent in English?

No you don’t. You only need BASIC English to be a freelancer 🙂

Do I need a laptop? I don’t have one.

Using a computer is recommended because you will have application assignments all throughout the course. I have students who work on their lessons and assignments in internet cafes and computer shops, until they get clients. By then, they will have the money to get their own laptop.

Do I need a headset and a webcam during the course?

You would need a headset or a speaker to listen to our live coaching sessions. So if your laptop has a working speaker, you’re ready. You won’t need a webcam.

How can I be sure that you are legit?

FVA is a registered entity in Davao, Philippines.
