HomeJobs.Ph is a platform for people seeking full-time or part-time employment in their own homes.
Jeremy Raymond, co-founder of HomeJobs.Ph, believes that the long commute times to work, heavy traffic, safety concerns, and the desire to be with the family has made the work from home site a big hit. According to Raymond, the amount of traffic they received has caused the website to temporarily shut down.
“We had to temporarily shut down our website due to the high demand. Our server couldn’t handle it,” said Raymond.
Sally Sannata, a HomeJobs.Ph user, claimed that the jobs she found through the website offered great pay. She is working as a customer service representative for an organization in Australia.
With HomeJobs, employers can browse through thousands of profiles and view an applicant’s work history, skills, and pay rates.
The site is free for both employers and employees. Openings are frequently posted by companies from around the world, including the United States, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Unlike other platforms which take a cut on the transactions between employers and employees, HomeJobs doesn’t charge anything and workers keep 100 percent of the rate.
“Like a normal job, the employer will pay the employee via the latter’s bank account. The two will decide which payment method works for them,” Raymond explained.
The numerous job openings include virtual assistants, customer service representatives, web developers, programmers, writers, SEO experts, salesmen and more. To verify your identity, the company charges an optional one-time fee of P500. However, job hunters can still sign up for free without paying.
“The one-time charge significantly increases your chances of getting chosen by potential employers and we recommend it,” Raymond said. HomeJobs will launch this month, but the site is now open to companies that wish to post job openings and employees who want to register.
