Legit Work From Home Job Platforms in the Philippines

    May 31, 2020


    Online is the future, and the future is now. With people choosing to work from home and asking how to start a freelance career, we’re still unsure where to find legit home base jobs, and that’s what I’ll be sharing today.

    So, picture this, you’ve been with a company for as long as you remember. You have great pay, a fantastic workspace, amazing colleagues, and a promising future!

    BUT then you’re forced to stay at home to take care of your loved ones. Some of us feel exhausted with the daily commute, which takes more or less 4 hours a day. Or worse, we’re hit by a pandemic, and we’re left jobless.

    What are we going to do now?

    That's where working from home comes in. According to recent research, those who are working as freelancers are more satisfied with their lifestyle and pay. 

    And I really cannot complain and that's why I highly recommend that you work from home

    Just like you and everyone else reading this right now, I also got tired of working and living from paycheck to paycheck. It was exhausting to walk for an hour to go home because of the traffic and to wake up at 5 AM to get to the office at 8 AM.

    "I dont have to live our lives like this," I told myself.

    And so we went on and chose to from home. However, it was and still is, never easy. 

    You also have to understand that work from home, even part-time jobs online is not for everyone, but that’s a story for another day.

    There are LOADS of ways to work at home, but some of them are just too good to be true, which is why I’m here to show you which ones are legit!

    Full Time or Part Time?

    You have quite a few options if you’re looking for both full time and part-time jobs. The best part? These jobs are usually similar to office jobs, so if you’re looking to have it part-time, it won’t be too different from what you’re used to.

    Virtual assistants and programmers aren’t the only jobs that pay you full-time while you work at home! There are also customer service representatives, freelancers, technical support representatives, accountants, and many others!

    If you’re looking to be one of these, some good platforms are:

    OnlineJobs.ph

    This platform is the perfect starter for any aspiring online worker. Jobs can vary, and you can be hired as a freelancer or a full/part-time employee! It’s also considered the biggest marketplace for hiring Filipino virtual assistants.

    Upwork

    This is one of the more diverse work from home job platforms when it comes to skill and job type. Thousands of people utilize the platform and share their vast array of skills. It has been up ever since 2015 and has a global audience as well!

    Craigslist

    This is probably the most popular place to look for freelancing and online jobs in the entire world. Craigslist isn’t just a place where people sell housing or items, and people also use it to look for workers and even job hirings!

    WeWorkRemotely

    This is a US-based platform that offers high-quality workers, jobs, and high paying jobs! Although US applicants mainly use the platform, they also consider people from the Philippines.

    StackOverflow

    One of the more linear work from home job platform, StackOverflow is primarily used to hire programmers or look for jobs related to programming. If you have a background in the software industry, definitely check this platform out!

    Outsourcely

    Outsourcely is the perfect place for finding home-based jobs. There are no hidden fees, and it’s 100% free for remote workers!

    Project-Based Work from Home Jobs

    This is the perfect choice for people who want to be paid based on the projects that they do. Projects are the way to go if you wish to the opportunity of having a short term or long term task.

    However, you can’t be considered a part-time or full-time employee if you work on a project basis. Examples of these are people who do articles, transcriptions, or even those who type out handwritten documents.

    These are perfect sites for people who prefer project-based jobs:

    Freelancer

    Freelancer has a ginormous database of freelance workers that are available for hire. Aside from that, you can sign up and make a profile for yourself so that people can hire you as well! 

    PeoplePerHour

    Despite being a smaller platform, it’s the same as Freelancer. You can go here to find jobs, employees, or contracts!

    Fiverr

    Although getting publicity here is a lot more complicated, you can set up a Fiverr page for yourself where you can tell people what you can do. You choose how much you get paid based on the job, and you can put down your specialty on your page! Fiverr also has a slogan saying “You can get anything for 5$” which makes it intriguing for businesses looking to hire people for projects.

    Crowd Site 

    Here, employers can hold competitions for graphic design projects such as logos and or slogans. If you’re interested in graphic design, you can easily win these contests and be paid or possibly even hired by the contest holder!

    Special Mention Work from Home Jobs Platform 

    Facebook Pages

    There are a lot of Facebook pages that teach you how to start to work from home, and one of my favorites is the Online Filipino Freelancers. These pages also have vacancy posts, and once the job is approved, I believe that it’s vouched by the admins so, it’s legitimate.

    LinkedIn

    I never thought that I’d find an excellent client here. I know that you can send applications and see vacancies from companies. I never really thought I’d land a job on the platform, and I’m sharing my story here.

    I’d be honest, and I haven’t applied or created a profile in all these platforms. What I did is I focused on Upwork and OnlineJobs.ph because I didn’t want to spread myself too thinly.

    I wanted to work on one or two platforms, so I don’t get overwhelmed with clients because I was running a one-person show before unlike now. I’m working with other freelancers who are fantastic web developers and social media managers.

    So, try these websites out, and if you’re hired on a different platform, please hare your experiences too!
