I signed up on OnlineJobs.ph as Virtual Assistant hoping that I will get hired. This website is known for hiring Filipino worker who can offer services online. Signing up is not a problem. I got account in a minute. I also passed logic and English exam easily. But the problem is until know, I can’t apply to employers because I have only 45 out of 100 ID proof. Most employers are requiring 70+ ID proof. Here you need to submit government ID as well as selfie while holding the ID, and a scanned document of your billing as proof of address. Well that is easy to provide for me. I was there in their website and I’m serious in getting a job. I prepared everything before knocking the door so I can ensure that everything will run smoothly. But I was wrong.
That is also a reason why I started my own website. Instead of relying on them, waiting on things that I don’t know if this will come or not, I develop this website and serve as my portal for my services. I don’t know, maybe that was a sign that I shouldn’t engage with them but to create my own website. I have read that it is not easy to find trusted client too. Actually even the answer to my question is also difficult to find. I know it will be better if I’m going to work for myself than to sign up to freelance based website. I have even account on Upwork, Fiverr, and Freelancer and I don’t think that is going to work. Anyway I’m opting for long term project, so this website will be a good decision.
So that’s it. I will update this post when I got the actual reply about my verification. Make sure to bookmark this post so you can return from time to time to check my updates.
