Searching for an online job during the Enhanced Community Quarantine? Or staying at home have you decided to stay and adopt work from home?
Work from home is the new normal during the Enhanced Community Quarantine. Unfortunately, there are Filipinos who are under the “no work, no pay” contract. This certainly poses a huge financial burden on these workers, especially now that the Luzon ECQ has been extended until 30 April 2020.
Unfortunately, bills continue to pile up, with or without a job.
According to the International Monetary Fund, the outlook for 2020 global growth is negative. All the more reason for Filipinos to find other ways to earn money online, right?
To help you get started on your online job search, we have compiled a list of the best websites and job search apps that are perfect for skilled and hardworking people like you.
Jobstreet Philippines is one of the most popular websites to find work from home jobs, whether it’s a part-time or full-time position. It has a large database of jobs and company information published on its website.
You can register for free and use the filter tools to narrow your job search. Just type “remote” to find companies hiring remote workers.
Don’t forget to use the Search Criteria to exclude jobs that pay lower than the minimum wage.
Neuvoo is an online job site available in Canada, France, and more than 75 countries. The Philippines site helps job seekers find remote jobs and filter the results by choosing their desired industry under Popular searches.
Search projects and jobs by typing your city or province, or look for companies that offer remote jobs instead of onsite positions.
Unfortunately, there are no Search Criteria available on this website to filter the results. But some companies post the minimum and average salaries.
Register for free and complete your profile to access complete details.
Upwork is another popular site to find all types of jobs for freelancers and independent contractors. But there’s some very stiff competition on this platform because freelancers’ hourly rates are displayed on their profiles.
If you’re a client looking to hire a freelancer, the tendency is to look at freelancers that charge the lowest rates.
This is okay if you’re just starting out and building your portfolio.
However, it can be challenging for experienced freelancers who charge higher rates. An effective way to get hired is to set a reasonable hourly rate. Other freelancers choose fixed rate projects as well.
OnlineJobs PH is the job board for virtual workers in the Philippines. It’s an online job portal of more than 30,000 job seekers and 3,000 employers and recruiters.
You need to sign up to get more details about the company and position. Submit your resume and set your fixed rate or expected salary based on your experience.
The Background Check option (for premium accounts) is favorable to recruiters and companies, which collect data on employees.
As a job seeker, excellent credentials from past employers will help you get the job.
#5 Facebook Jobs
You’ve probably been using Facebook to connect with friends and family and post dog memes.
But did you know you can also search for part-time and work from home jobs?
If you’re using the Facebook app, scroll down and click “Jobs” to view all the posted jobs by employers and recruiters.
It has search filters, too, allowing you to be more targeted with the companies and industries. If you’re using the desktop version, you’ll find “Jobs” on the left side of the screen under Explore.
#6 LinkedIn Jobs
If you haven’t signed up for a LinkedIn account, now is the best time to do it. Showcase all the impressive things you accomplished in your past jobs and hopefully get a call from a recruiter.
LinkedIn Jobs is another great site to look for remote and part-time jobs, thanks to its Search option.
It will help you narrow down your search and exclude companies that don’t offer remote work or home-based projects.
If you want to get more results, you can type in “Worldwide” under Location to view all job posts.
Indeed Philippines has an extensive database of online jobs, whether within your province or from overseas. You just have to use the right keywords for a targeted search and to get matching results.
Just like OnlineJobs PH, job seekers need to create an account to be able to upload their resumes.
The Company Reviews tab offers a broader selection of companies and shows the credibility ratings of employers.
Use words like “Remote + position” to filter out companies that don’t offer remote jobs or work from home arrangements.
GrabJobs is an online portal that helps companies and recruiters automate the screening process of job applicants. As of writing, there are 5,000 companies in their database.
You can also use the Search option and fill in a position or keyword to get results.
The filter options will also help you search and view salary offers, industries, and positions. Click ‘Explore Companies’ to see available positions.
FlexJobs allows you to search for remote work and home-based work around the world. You can set the location to ‘Philippines’. But you’ll get plenty of results when you choose ‘Worldwide’ and add keywords like “position + remote” or “home-based”.
It has a Search Criteria to help you choose categories and types of work (full-time, part-time, contract). You just need to add a resume and cover letter and sign up for free to unlock more details.
You might be wondering why Google was included in this list. But there’s a feature called “Jobs” which is available once you type the right keywords.
Go to Google.com and type “graphic designer remote” as an example. You’ll be provided with several hits. It will also detect your location, so you’ll get suggested jobs near you.
Results can come from different online job portals and search apps while other results can come from LinkedIn Jobs, Jooble.org, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, and many others.
We can go on and include Craigslist Manila, Jooble, PinoyJobs, BestJobs, and more. The key here is to review the job requirements, do your research about the employer, and decide if the salary offer is good for you. Also, be wary of job offers that sound too good to be true.
