To be able to zero in on a suitable person with the skills that we required from Day One has been amazing. The alternative would have been spending large sums on trying out and training different applicants. My staff has excellent English, is highly skilled in Microsoft applications, pleasant, capable of finding solutions, independent and trustworthy. She is capable of meeting challenges and willing and able to learn new systems and methods of operation.The screening process of Virtual Coworker has enabled us to get straight into work without complications. We highly recommend their services. Virtual Coworker provides best virtual assistants from Philippines.

Mindy Prestage Headshot

Virtual Coworker has given us a gift. Our VC is amazing; even better, is she is part of our team. The recruitment process was painless and we were able to conduct several very short interviews based on great profiles provided to us. Our VC has been with us now for 2 years and almost immediately we moved her from part-time to full-time. She is able to take on a variety of tasks and communicate smoothly with our team throughout the day like she was right here with us. It is a pleasure having her with us.
