We are happy to share with you a brand-new episode of our Weekly Tea with Juan! As you may know, Weekly Teas are biweekly videos where Teresa, the Marketing Director for Job Duck, interviews our international staffers and gets to share important details about their experiences working remotely for businesses based in the U.S.
In this episode, Juan, who’s based in Colombia, mentioned that one of the most valuable benefits of working home-based is the time you save by not having to undergo the daily commute. He happily expressed he saves two hours daily just by working from home.
“Two hours per day are basically the amount of time to fit any other activity; exercising, reading, relaxing or just anything you want to do. It makes a big difference!”Juan, virtual assistant
Also, he shared that he’s learned a lot from his team members and employer. Moreover, by working as a virtual assistant for a small business, he assures that there’s a huge insight into all the different areas of the business such as marketing, sales, and production. Juan enjoys not being boxed in one specific area but instead having a broad view of the company. This aspect is what he considers to be truly enriching and very valuable.
Teresa added that it is an extremely important fact that employers highly trust their virtual assistants. That way VA’s get to be more resourceful and learn much by being independent.
Finally, Juan encourages everyone to apply for the job offers there are at Job Duck. He believes it is a great opportunity for anyone who’d like to work for a well-structured and serious company that offers a competitive salary.
