Hi everyone, what’s up?

Yeah, I know its been a while since our last post. Its been a busy week for all of us here in Online Job Site Ph, but were back.

I read this article about online job scams and how some Filipinos are afraid of applying in one because their are afraid that they might be scammed. This is the topic of our latest posts, so if this is your concern as well, please read on.

Looking for a job has now been made miles easier by the online job search. Nowadays, all you need is a computer and trusty Internet connection.  However, you should never forget that there are a lot of scams on the web too.

That is why you need to be most careful in providing your personal information. So maybe you ask yourself, “What can I do to keep myself protected from these impostors?” Here are a few tips you can use to protect yourself:

If you are an Internet marketer from the US or UK and doing your own campaigns and you were to hire someone from your own country, you may have to pay $10-$15 an hour for a decent writer and some big dollars if you want someone to handle your SEO campaigns. And if a company will hire the same level of people, their expenses will definitely build up. This is the magic that outsourcing to the Philippines does for many companies and entrepreneurs; simply put, they save you money because of the very minimal salary you would need to pay your virtual staff.

We have heard it so many times in the business world; first impressions last.  In your job interview, you want to make the best impression. When preparing your resume, you don’t want to be overly selling yourself, but just enough to impress the employer to consider you above other applicants. This is particularly vital as well when applying for an online job.

In any job or profession, there are advantages and disadvantages. When it comes to traditional jobs where you have to go to an office, one obvious disadvantage is the money you have to spend on your daily transportation. Oh and don’t forget the traffic you have to endure to and from work that can take its toll on a person working in Manila. Just ask any Filipino who experience the heavy traffic at rush hour, and they will tell you that the word “disadvantage” is an understatement. For some, traffic jams are a torture and a major source of stress.
