I’m very excited to share this post with you this month. Let me explain why. As virtual service providers, we are often starved for resources that’ll help us expand our business. We want to learn how to avoid making big mistakes, the best tips for our particular niche, and much more. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s hard to find those resources.
This is what Savvy Subcontracting is all about. I’m here to supply you with helpful resources, such as my Virtual Team 360 podcast. Recently I’ve been researching ways for you to expand your business and improve or add to your current skill set. I came across a site that is providing professionals with subcontractors who will fit their specific needs, as well as projects and opportunities for subcontractors themselves. This is something I’ve been successful in, so I thought this website was a perfect resource to offer here.
VirtualVocations.com is a telecommute site which, according to their website, leads to jobs that “offer real pay for real work.” What’s amazing is that they do all the hard work for you. Besides from providing access to potential jobs and team members, they hand-screen it all. It frees up your time while also easing your mind about whether you’ve found a quality, reliable person to work with.
All you have to do is create a profile and search for what you need. Whether you’re looking for a project, or for a subcontracting team member, there’s something there for you. Additionally, Virtual Vocations has many e-courses and valuable downloads that will add to your current knowledge, and teach you some new things too! You can choose to receive alerts when new job opportunities in your field arise, save jobs you’re interested in to return to later, and upload your job application documents to easily apply for projects. It’s really easy to keep things organized.
You can pay for a monthly subscription, as well as try it out for free first to see what you think of it. The real value, I believe, is that they have done their homework, so to speak. They did all the screening and research, so you don’t have to. That’s extremely valuable, especially when you’re a busy professional who might be starting up their business on the side while still balancing a full-time job outside the home. Or you might be a parent who is often distracted from work by your family. Perhaps you simply don’t want to spend your time doing hours of fruitless searching.
Virtual Vocations makes everything easier, and what virtual service provider doesn’t want that? I’m so glad I came across this site and can share it as yet another resource here on Savvy Subcontracting. Be sure to check out the Resources tab for more!
