Work Update - Screening of Candidates for a Full-time VA

Overview
Work Period: Jan 23 & 24, 2014
Hours Worked: 10:40 @$2.22/hour
Money Paid to Me (Virtual Assistant): $21.33*
                          (*Exclusive of $2.35 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium











  • Reviewed hundreds of virtual assistant profiles from onlinejobs.ph, shortlisted some more candidates and added to VA Profiles.docx. Although you have asked to research 10 more candidates but as I mentioned earlier that I reviewed hundreds of candidates but only shortlisted those who are best matched to our criteria.
  • Thanks for providing feedback about my research for Virtual Assistants profiles. I have updated the existing VA Profiles.docx. In fact I have created a new Excel-sheet in which I have summarized all candidates alongwith some necessary information. I think that an excel format would help you more during the hiring process and analyzing different candidates. Please review VA Profiles Updated.xlsx into the Dropbox.

Ideal-Helper Website Update:
  • Updated all information on Ideal-Helper Homepage same as Index-3 page. Since it was not possible to move content from one page to another as advised by SBI! tips post because content on Index-3 page has a lot of anchor links that need to be redirected to index page instead of index-3 page, therefore I have manually rebuild most of the content on the homepage again.

  • Watched the other long feedback video about Google drive pending work updates and made advised changes.
  • About the broken link ‘Catch for Android’ which we have used on Voice Transcription page, unfortunately catch.com has closed and shut down their service. Here is one blog post that specifies more details about their discontinuation of service: http://www.androidcentral.com/catch-notes-service-shutting-down-after-aug-30
  • I forgot to mention this in my previous work update about grammarly.com, I think this is a good service and we can take a lot of benefit from this. I don’t know how good it would work, but I suggest that if you are looking to buy a paid subscription then first please buy it only for a month and we will test it by improving existing website content and will then see how much quality grammarly can add to the existing content.
  • About sharesales.com login information, unfortunately I don’t have login details associated with party games website. Since the account is associated with your private email address therefore I have transcribed the email draft and saved to High Priority folder as Shareasale-Draft.docx

Party Games Website Update:
  • Removed the said content from Ideas for birthday party page because the affiliate link is now permanently broken. Created a new folder with the High Priority folder and moved the removed content to that.
