Important Reminders

1. Surge Marketplace has no monetary obligations to an intern.

2. All outputs will be Surge Marketplace’s (or the client’s) property. You can, however, use the copy for your portfolios.

3. Make sure all contents are copyright-free. Surge Marketplace will not be liable for any copyright issues.

4. You will be working with Surge Operations: main, franchisees, and other real and existing local and international businesses. No fear, though; we will be there for the whole process, assisting in everything.

5. All applicants cannot choose tasks. You should be ready to serve clients based on what you learned from the course:
– General Virtual Assistant Tasks: Emails and Files Management, Lead Generation, Transcriptions, Calendar Management and Appointment Setting

* Other application tasks under your specific training maybe be added

6. There will be times that we will all work on a task as a team. There will be times when 1-2 people will be assigned to specific tasks. This is why the scheduled meetings are important. This is also our way of guiding you on what to do and how to do it. Again, we will not leave you alone; we will be by your side as you provide virtual assistance.

7. If you are not ready yet because you need to review or your schedule does not allow you, you can sign up for the next batch.

8. We do not recommend that you leave your availed slot, especially when the program has already started. The paid program will be consumed. You can re-apply to any of the available apprenticeship batches by submitting a new application, with the added fee for the applicable apprenticeship program rates.

9. We will set a limited task per batch. 35 tasks for online setup and 15 tasks for in-person setup

How The Freelancing Apprenticeship Program Is Helping Surge Marketplace Students

"One thing that I am very thankful for in my journey here in FVA is during my Apprenticeship Program. I have learned from my mentor to not just reply to messages just for the sake of a reply. Make it your chance to sell yourself every time. “Always make a prompt reply to client”, I learned these tips from Coach Grace and I was praised by my client because of it."
Marvin Gorres
"Hi Coach Grace, I’m so delighted because my first day on my first job ends well today with a good comment from the boss, I did what you and coach Jay teach us from apprenticeship which is doing a daily report to keep track and I did it today and sent him and he so happy because he been in this industry and none of his VA done it. 🙂 he so happy about it and ask other VA to do it start today also and I will be getting more jobs because of doing it. 🙂 Thank you so much, Coaches!"
