Applying to Jobs with the Help of a Virtual Assistant

Applying to jobs

Applying to jobs by yourself sucks

Applying to jobs is a necessary part of life. Sometimes we just have to.

You know that feeling. Your workplace becomes toxic. Your boss doesn’t respect you anymore. Your pay isn’t high enough. On top of that, the toilets are just awful.

You wish for something else, something better. You know it’s out there. You know it exists. However… who has the time to apply for a million different positions? You have to take care of your resume, spruce up your LinkedIn, maybe even spruce up your style a bit. That’s somehow even tolerable compared to the prospect of sending out the applications themselves…

Honestly? Sometimes it can feel like it’s almost better to just put up with your soul-sucking position. If only there was a way you could have your cake and eat it too…

Well, what if we told you there was?

In the following post, you can read about a client (let’s call her Charlotte for confidentiality) who hired a VA to help her with applying to jobs.

Like you, Charlotte was dissatisfied with her job but didn’t have the time or energy to search for and apply to all the positions she wanted and needed. Luckily, our VA was there to help. Let’s take a look at the project report.
