38 Legit Filipino Work From Home Job Sites That Will Not Scam You

work from home job sites

You have a job and have been working with a great company for the longest time. Yay or Nay?

It’s great pay, great people, great environment but what would make it even better is if you could do the same work, with the same compensation or higher while working from home.

Cool right?

The problem with working in an office is that for one, you’re not saving as much because you have to shell out some money for transportation, food, clothing and more because you are working outside of the home.

You have to commute, buy business clothes, spend precious money on food and who knows what else. Not only that, you’d have to endure hours of traffic or the loooooong lines at the MRT (Metro Rail Transit) or LRT (Light Rail Transit) to get to work so chances are, by the time you get to the office, you’re already stressed out!

The good news is, there are a LOT of other work options available.

And the best part? They can easily be found online, so you can work and be at home all at the same time!

How cool is that?

You save money because you don’t have to spend money on the things that I’ve mentioned above. Yay!

However, online scams are everywhere and they have many ingenious tricks to dupe you into thinking that you’re actually signing up for a legitimate online job.

To be honest, the scams are designed to look like genuine offers. What’s the quickest way to know for sure if it’s a scam? They ask you to pay them money for registration, tax reasons, permits and more. If a job site is asking you to give money to them, then it’s probably a scam and it’s best to stay away from those.

Some online scams are also phishing sites that will try to get your information and use it for things that are not legal. Legitimate online jobs don’t ask you for money. Why? Because these are big companies and they earn money in a different way.

To know more about the most commonly identified job scams, see How to avoid job scams. Also keep in mind that a genuine job platform can still have some people who are trying to scam employees, so use the same discretion in choosing an employer.

There are several options for legitimate home based jobs, depending on your skill sets or preferred position, the most common are:

Full-time/Part-time online jobs:

There are several online platforms that offer full-time or part-time employment. This type of work is somewhat the same as that in an office.

Full time work at home is not limited to programmers or virtual assistants. We have accountants, systems and network administrators, customer service representatives, technical support representatives, medical transcriptionists, and so on.

Here are some of the top online platforms that offer full time and/or part time jobs:

outsourcelyOutsourcely is a great place to find homebased work and pay zero fees. Outsourcely is 100% free for remote workers.

We Work Remotely WeWorkRemotely offers high level and high paying jobs for US applicants but they also consider people from the Philippines.


Stack Exchange Stack Exchange is primarily a site for programmers and all tasks are related to software development only.

 

Projects Based

Projects are an excellent choice for short or long term work (depending on the task) that doesn’t require an extended contract.

You usually can’t even be categorized as a part time or full time employee if you are working on project basis. Some of the most common examples for this type of work are graphic design, 400-500 word articles about certain topics, transcription of audio files, typing out hand written documents, and more.

The top three sites for Projects based employment are:

Upwork
Upwork has a large database of professional freelancers that can get the job done. One of the pioneers in the work-from-home arena.

BPO (Business Process Outsourcing)

BPO companies are sometimes aptly called “call centers” or “contact centers”. They often do offshore business that caters to the needs of companies from all over the world who outsource their employees to distant countries, such as the Philippines.

These BPO companies have sprouted like mushrooms and now a days, there are call center offices whichever direction you turn your head (no kidding!).

Another type of BPO is the home based type or Online BPO which pretty much does the same thing: outsource workers who are willing to work from home. However, as this is a “Business”, there are certain requirements, namely fast and reliable internet connection, a desktop or laptop with updated hardware and software, an actual workspace from home which should be quiet and free from distractions. The most common type of work caters to English tutorial services, VA or virtual assistant services and other IT related work.

Some popular BPO companies that allow you to work from home:

Remote Staff With an office based in Makati, Remote Staff is an online outsourcing company where you can sign up as an applicant and then their recruitment team will match your skills with a potential client.

    Poor benefits – Covered up with an offset of higher pay. Funnels benefits through their other Real Estate business. Job expectations do not meet job descriptions or pay scale. Owners are not on the same page and don’t work well together. Owner/CEO D. Ramsey is volatile and makes many unethical business decisions – Not to be trusted. Legally questionable business practices – Especially when it comes to HR and financial issues.

    Management Advice
    Re-evaluate C-Suite. Hire experienced HR, Legal, Compliance, Financial Specialist and Sales Leaders. Be honest to employees, potential hires, clients and business partners. Seek Leadership Training and Professional Coaching for all Executives.

    Advice to Current Employees and Job Seekers
    Run! There is much better employment elsewhere.

  9. Thank you, Elle, for writing this article and for including 5 STAR VAs in your list.

    I do feel that it is important for Filipino VA’s to know who they can trust and go to when seeking good home based employment, there are too many scammers and people ready to take advantage of VA’s who are just trying to seek a genuine long-term employment opportunity to support themselves and their family.
