We have launched a new website (http://www.vaintern.com/) for Virtual assistants and clients. The main aim of launching of this site is to help the new aspiring VAs to give an opportunity to work as an intern with Real clients. Virtual Assistants can really learn a lot about client's business and get hands-on experience in handling client's tasks/projects.

This is a great opportunity to start your VA business and network with Real clients and fellow virtual assistants. I have 5 VA intern codes that I can give 1 each for aspiring VAs.

Please respond to this thread if you need to register as a VA.

Thanks much!

I have already sent 3 VA invite codes. Only 2 are left. Let me know if anyone is interested. I am so excited for this opportunity. Some of these intern positions are paid and some are unpaid, but you'll have the access to all the products and resources (in case of unpaid) which you can use it for your own knowledge and develop your skills.

Don't miss this opportunity

Cheers!

Hmmmm has anybody actually gotten paid for their work? Or is this intern job unpaid. she mentioned that some were paid and some were unpaid jobs...wondering if anybody got a paid one.
Sounds kinda fishy to me. First she has 5 codes to give out...then she posts that she got a few more. Then all of a sudden anybody can register. Sounds like a scam to me. Free work..how great for her business.
Also if you want to work as an intern and want to do it for free, why don't you all offer your services for free on sites like Odesk, elance, etc.
Be careful ladies and don't give your work away for free. If you want experience, intern with someone you know (business person who needs help). Most likely, they will pay you once they see that you're saving them time and money.
I hope I am wrong. I am not trying to start trouble for the lady but I've gotten tricked exactly like this not too long ago so I'm always on my toes now.

Hello DugsMom,

I request you to read the entire thread before giving your opinion. First of all, it's not a scam site because, not anybody and everybody can register as an intern with VAintern. A VA should already have her own VA business, a Business name and business website (either free or self hosted one) and A VA should have been working as a business owner before registering at VA Intern. I had been given only 5 codes to distribute to aspiring VAs before the Website launch and When I saw the responses on WAHM, I requested the VAIntern owner to provide more codes and she gave me 10 more codes. Once the website went live, they canceled the coding option and we could register without the code. The Clients on VA Intern are very well established business owners and they're looking for honest and trustworthy VAs to build long term relationship and that's the reason they want to work with aspiring VAs. Once they're comfortable working with their VAs, the projects/work will be changed into paid one. I understand when you say, don't work for free. And, I really hate working for free unless I get something in exchange, that could be money, or some great resources or some valuable training. On VA Intern website, you'll get something in exchange when you work with the clients and you don't regret working with them. I do work as an Intern for a great website and in turn I get a lot of support to promote my own business, resources and training from my client. I have also got some good leads from my client. And, I really love working as an Intern for that website.

Actually, the VAIntern site is under construction now, they're readjusting their focus and will be re-launching the site in the next few months with many new features.
If any well established Virtual Assistant has any concerns about the legitimacy of the VA Intern website, please send me a message or reply to this post.

Thanks!

I read the ENTIRE thread before I posted my opinion....twice.

" First of all, it's not a scam site because, not anybody and everybody can register as an intern with VAintern. A VA should already have her own VA business, a Business name and business website (either free or self hosted one) and A VA should have been working as a business owner before registering at VA Intern. " None of your posts say anything about having to have a website, business name, and that not everybody can register as an intern?Why didn't you let the ladies know that before getting them excited about this opportunity?
What you wrote in one of your posts was that it would be a "great opportunity to start your own VA business." "Start" is the key word...you don't say anything about it being a great opportunity to get our VA businesses off the ground.
I think any business owner would love to have an assistant so we could go to any business and offer our services for free. We gain the experience we need and the business owner gets a VA for free. I don't see what makes your site any different other than the fact that you are getting the work done for free...the business owners pay you for the work so in the end your profit but the VA's don't.
As for resources, we can find that online for free. I have gotten contracts, forms, business calculators, templates, spreadsheets, advice from established VA's (on this forum and others), etc. all for free.

I hope I am wrong and that the ladies get paid work. It's why we are here. Ladies, please do your research, ask questions, and make sure that any of the business opportunities that you find online are legit.
