It was a hopeful time for the Philippines, quite appropriately – was. The vice president took her oath in the middle of the famed Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) shrine, a place associated with hope for change and new beginnings, and began her term as a president with many hopeful believers. After all having an economist president did sound optimistic at that time, considering the state of the country back then. It was a bitter disappointment when her succeeding years in the Palace were laced with controversies of corruption and accusations of fraud. This dismal reality sent the country to an even more dismal state. With economic crisis that gripped the United State of America (USA) to whom the economy of the Philippines have been closely tied and dependent to, the country’s economic condition grew worse, ironically, in the time of an economist president.
The concluding months of the last presidency were characterized by company closings and job losses. Overseas economic crisis were sending overseas Filipino workers (OFW) back to the country jobless as well. With the limited employment opportunities in the country as well, it became a tougher competition for the unemployed members of the population which ranged from fresh college graduates to now jobless OFWs to laid-off workers to a hundred thousand more jobseekers.
While the country hopes for better times and better opportunities in the present government, seeking employment continues to be a challenge to many, after all there the jobs are limited and the seekers seem not. There are prospects however, prospects that appear optimistic. Just as how outsourcing jobs is becoming a life line to the Filipino work force, with the wide use of the internet, online jobs is a hopeful potential and option to many.
Online jobs, scams excluded, are promising and convenient. They offer competent work opportunities that can be done in the practicality of homes. They display a good variety of choices analogous to what is available outside. The most common ones, including online tutorial jobs, writing jobs or typing jobs, do not need demand tough prerequisites such as one to year job experience in the field, viciously common in the usual job openings. It appears very encouraging especially for young graduates who do not have the boost of prior working experiences in their fields.
Therefore in this tough time, online jobs can be good alternative work opportunities Filipinos can turn to. In the mean time, while the country is trying hard to pull itself together once more.
