Getting a job is fairly simple. First, you need to sign up for a 100% FREE Jobseeker account. During the sign-up process, you’ll be prompted to fill out an online resume (information about yourself). It’s advised that you take your time filling out each section, as it will greatly increase your chances of getting hired by one of our employers. It is also HIGHLY recommended that you use the “Sign up with Facebook” feature, as it shows potential employers that you are a real person, and are serious about finding a job. After you are all signed up, you’ll have access to other features of the site, including the ability to apply for jobs that are posted in the member’s area.
You can get paid through multiple payment gateways, and that is to be determined by what you and your employer agree upon. We recommend the following websites:
Once again, this too depends on the agreement you have with your employer. Generally, employers may pay once per week in the beginning just to see if you are the right candidate for their company. However, this is usually only during the probationary period. Once it has been determined by your employer that you will be hired full-time, it’s likely that you will be paid monthly, or every 2 weeks. Every employer is different, and payment schedules can vary greatly, however this is a good general reference as to how most employer / employee payment schedules are set up.
Not even close! In fact, this is simply a way for real overseas employers to connect with talented filipino workers just like you, who are looking to be part of their company as a “virtual assistant”. These jobs are actual salary based jobs, where you get paid on a regular fixed schedule for your work. (These jobs have nothing to do with trying to make sales or any other commission / performance based incentives).
If you are willing and ready to work, and have access to the internet, you are already qualified. Our employers are seeking candidates with all types of skill sets.
While a college degree does help, it is not a requirement. Most of our employers are more interested in what experience and skills you have to bring to the table. This also includes your overall work ethic, how well you communicate, and how you’d fit as a team member.
Jobs can vary depending on the nature of the job. Some jobs require different sets of skills than others.
Here is just a small sample of such skills: Graphics Design, Article Writing, Proofreading, Customer Service, Blogging, Programming, Data Entry, Search Engine Optimization / Link Building, Billing, Accounting, Managing Advertising Accounts, Video editing, Email Marketing, Project management, and many more!
Yes! All employers on VirtualAssistants.ph are looking for “virtual assistants” which means that you will be required to work online. This means you only need access to the internet to complete any and all tasks required by your employer. You will not be relocating abroad, but rather you’ll be able to work from any computer that has internet access.
Situations like these are very unlikely and uncommon. If you perform your duties to the best of your ability, and maintain good communication with your employer, you shouldn’t ever have a problem like this.
However, in the unlikely event that your employer refuses to pay you, contact us immediately! Simply give us the full contact details of the employer, their instructions for the job they gave you to complete, along with proof that you completed the job. If we find them in the wrong, we will ban them from using our services in the future, and will compensate you out of the fees they have already paid to use our service.
This can depend on multiple different factors. First of all, not all employers have the same interview process. Some employers will ask that you complete a small sample task before deciding who they will hire, while others will simply have a skype conversation with you.
The most important thing you can do to stack the odds in your favor, is to fill out your online resume as thoroughly as possible. This includes choosing your best skills wisely, and leaving detailed notes in each section. Also, having a well written title and description of yourself in your profile along with a professional profile picture will also give you the best chances, and make you stand out among the other job seekers. When a potential employer contacts you, get back to them RIGHT AWAY! If you don’t respond within 12-24 hours (or much earlier), you may miss out on a great opportunity. Two of the top traits that our employers are looking for are good communication, and fast response time!
If you lie on your profile you’re only hurting yourself. Most employers will ask you questions, and even give you small tests to see how proficient you are at specific skills. Plus, who would want a job that requires skills you don’t have? Seems like it would be pretty hard, and you wouldn’t last very long… Plus, if we find out, you risk losing your account! Remember, there are jobs no matter what your skill set, so be honest, and try to get a job that best fits you!
If you are already working somewhere else, be sure to include that information in your user profile. Being upfront and honest is always the best way to go. You can start out with a part-time position, and see how it works out for you. Many of our employers are willing to hire part-time virtual assistants, so don’t worry if you already have another job. In fact, many job seekers start out as a part-time worker, and then move into full-time with their new overseas company as things progress.
