These are the top three ways to hire virtual assistants for your startup.

Registering for a Job

You can advertise your job as a virtual bookkeeping assistant on many sites. You will need to create a job description on social networks such as LinkedIn and Craigslist that includes the required skills and pay.

Pros: You can choose who you hire, conduct interviews, and participate in negotiations regarding pay.

Cons: Interviewing virtual bookkeeping assistants is time-consuming and challenging. These sites don't guarantee that freelancers will stay.

Gig Websites

Websites such as Fiverr or Upwork, which are specifically designed for freelance bookkeepers, allow them to post their resumes and portfolios online in order to be hired.

Pros: A candidate list already exists. Before you can select the right candidate for your company, you must evaluate and shortlist them.

Cons: You won't be able to speak with your virtual bookkeeper assistant until you have paid. Although the organization vets virtual assistants, they aren’t trained so you’ll need to spend some time training them after they’re onboarded.

Publicize a message

When you are certain of the qualifications you require in a bookkeeper, you can post an advertisement inviting applicants. You can practice some interview questions so you can choose the finest candidates. Different business accounting software with their distinct bookkeeping services will apply when they see your advertisement.
