How to use sList to find Virutal Assistants Hello. This is "a first" for me. I'm considering posting a job opening for a long-term virtual assistant (VA), someone reliable who must have fast internet access and a good/secure PC at home. My concern: Either I will not be trusted or I will be scammed. I know I could use a middle-man to set me up with a VA, but I'd rather pay the extra money direct to a reliable helper than to pay almost as much (or more) to the middleman as I pay the helper. I need advice about 1) how to effectively post a job ad that people will respond to; and, 2) how to avoid getting scammed myself, by either people who lack the skills/reliability or the internet connection AND how to avoid middlemen or brokers. What "works" when it comes to advertising a position for "remote" or "internet" or "virtual assistant" type positions (and what doesn't or what turns people off) AND what to look out for in the replies = the "warning signs" that the person responding might not have my best interests in mind. Also, what is considered a fair wage for someone starting in such a position? The job offer salaries are "all over the place", some paying by the article, some by the hour, etc. What would be a reasonable weekly wage for someone with very good writing skills and a working knowledge of Wordpress and other basic "search engine skills". Thanks very much.

If you have the funds, use a system like brass ring so people can click and apply that way. If not, be sure to include a business name that can be verified online as a brick & mortar business and/or a business email. You can always tell applicants not to and not to apply unless they have all qualifications you are seeking. Most people also want to know salary/hourly wage range so they won't be wasting their/your time. If you are on CL and have put no business name, no business address and no range on the ad, a lot of people will flag your ad off. It may not cost $25 a pop in your area, but it does here and I regularly flag anyone who definitely sounds like a scammer and doesn't include any of the info above.

    Thanks for the helpful advice Thanks for the suggestions, jeezopeet. It sounds like the best "confirmation of legitimacy" is to the open (name the company, full contact info, etc.) and probably to have a corresponding link to a website that confirms/supports the legitimacy of ther person/company (real company/site) AND resolves other questions or doubts of the potential application - like - "What does this company REALLY do?" or "What, exactly, will 'the work' (to be done) look like"? I somewhat already knew the answer. Probably my underlying concern was "How much info is too much info?", as in "Will this bring more unsolicited inquiries?", etc. Thanks again.
