It’s so amazing how technological innovation has allowed us to work in the comforts of our home using only our computers and internet connection. Today, more and more Filipinos are working online. Some of the more popular reasons why Filipinos want to work from home are: they want to spend more time with their families; they want to be more flexible with their time; or they want to earn dollars. Whatever reasons you may have, you may want to navigate the following websites and see if working from home is also for you.
- 199jobs.com – How I wish 199jobs.com was present when I was in college. I could have augmented my allowance through this site.
You can offer your services through this site for only 199 pesos. For example, you can say “I can write a quality 500-word article for 199”. Entrepreneurs who want to avail of your services can buy your job. You can navigate through the site for reference. 🙂 Oh, by the way, that’s a referral link above which means if you join 199jobs, I get P100 when you make a sale. You get P100 too! Isn’t it amazing? Isn’t it exciting?
- Fiverr.com – This site is like 199jobs.com. The only difference is that it is $5 per job. My friend used to hire the services of a graphic designer here to design her book covers. You may want to offer your services here too. J
- Odesk.com – What I like about Odesk it that they have a time tracking application. You are paid on the hours that you worked on (except when it’s a fixed price job).
- Onlinejobs.ph – There are also a variety of jobs available at onlinejobs.ph for Filipino freelancers. You can earn from $1.45/hour to $6.25/hour. Not bad especially for beginners.
- Elance.com – I noticed that the rates here are higher although I haven’t worked here yet. They also have a guaranteed payment scheme for freelancers, just like Odesk.
- Freelancer.ph – Also for Filipino freelancers. When you go to their site, it says it’s the number 1 resource for small business and entrepreneurs. You can check out their site to see if this is for you.
- Remotestaff.com – Remotestaff is another site for Filipino freelancers. I know some developers who have worked here.
