With the onset of the internet, almost everything can be done anywhere, as long as you have a computer and an internet connection – including jobs, at home. It is the most convenient form of job as it appears. You don’t have to go brave the traffic on the roads every day to get to the office. Work is entirely at home, over the internet.
There is good variety of home-based online jobs available in the Philippines. Among the most numerous are online tutorial jobs, translators and freelance writing, all of which requires fluency in the English language which Filipinos are known for. Your first step would be to know which type of online job you wish to do at home. Identifying this will narrow down your searches. The web is swarmed with fake job postings and, worse, scams; therefore be wary and watchful. It is most advisable to search for job postings in moderated job listing sites instead of clicking on pop-ups advertising job opportunities. Prepare your documents. Resume, credentials and cover letters are still required by most companies, even for home-based online jobs. For jobs such as freelance writing, you also ought to prepare a sample of your work. It is as effective as telling your prospect employer how you are good at writing.
Be ready for interviews, assessments and exams, whichever is likely to be given depending on the type of online job you’re applying for. For instance, online English tutorial jobs usually require interview to judge your fluency in the language. Since the application is done over the internet, check your e-mail regularly so as not to miss messages from your prospect employers.
Online job hunting is similar to job hunting outside, only, instead of going from building to building, you go from website to website. Therefore the same essential points are highlighted. Apply to as many job postings as interests you and those you judge legitimate. Put your best foot forward, as the old cliché goes. Be your best. Impress. Just as there are numerous competitions for jobs in the real world, so are for jobs in the online.
This particular one is immensely critical: check the details of the job posting first before you send your credentials to the prospect employer. Conducting a background check of the company can be very helpful. Any job posting asking you to pay to get the job started, no matter how much they promise for your pay check, is a scam; therefore, ignore it. There are many legitimate home-based online jobs that offer good pays, do not be tempted and do not be fooled.
And just as they say for every job search – good luck!
