I promised myself that if I ever got paid through this online platform, I will definitely make a good review about it. So, here it is.
Two weeks ago, I was quite desperate on looking for online jobs that will not be burden-some for students like me. I’ve heard loads of stuff about being virtual assistants or VAs so I tried searching for those kind of jobs in google. Luckily, I stumbled on a site called onlinejobs.ph.
Upon signing up for an account and completing all the necessary tests (Yes, you need to take some basic tests to increase your chances of getting hired), an Australian company contacted me to do some online task for them which basically involves some writing and uploading tasks. I was fortunate enough because my employer is quite patient with me because I must admit even though I’m into content writing for some time now, there are still many things about it that I don’t know yet.
So, you might be asking, is onlinejobs.ph legitimate? Yes, definitely. Here’s a snippet of my payment via paypal.
NOTE: I covered the name of my employer’s name with a purple ink for the sake of his privacy. These are my income for 10+ hours of work per week. Not so bad if you are doing some simple and basic tasks, right?
Oh and by the way, before I forget, onlinejobs.ph serves only as some sort of a mediator between Filipinos and foreign companies. So, the modes of payment, communications, monitoring software, etc. are independent of the site. These things will highly rely on the preferences of your employers. More often than not, this is the scenario: You’ll get to communicate with your employers via skype; You’ll get paid through paypal; and Be supervised through basecamp and worksnaps software. In my case, we are using worksnaps to track the time I’ve spent in doing my job.
- Don’t be lazy in rating your skills upon signing up. This way, your employers will get to assess if you are qualified for the job.
- Be honest in rating your self. Don’t put 4 stars if you are not the best at it. Remember, it’s alright to admit that there are things you don’t know rather than showing off. Anyway, your employers will eventually know whether you are lying or not.
- Take onlinejobs.ph tests and post the results to your profile. Don’t worry these are just basic tests that involves IQ, English and a little bit of psychological exams.
- Upload a government issued identification card and link your profile to your Facebook account to get high ID trust ratings.
- Don’t apply to jobs you cannot be committed with. Usually, a job at onlinejobs.ph indicates a required time allotment per week. If you think you can do the job, then go for it. But, if not, just give them to more deserving applicants.
So, that’s it. If you have other suggested sites where we can earn money to prepare for the upcoming holiday season, please put them on the comment box.
Good luck for finding your online job.
