Industries Using VAs

Task Analysis

In recent Virtual Assistant industry surveys, we asked VAs “What industries do you work with?” and “What tasks do you perform for these industries?” We’ve compiled some of the responses as examples of the diversity of duties VAs handle for their clients. Many of these tasks apply across industries. More than 1,000 industry-types were reported. If your industry is not listed, check back soon. This task analysis report is updated regularly.
