For Virtual Assistant Ronald Ramboanga, the event was doubly successful. Besides gaining knowledge and ideas on how to set up his own business, Ronald received a message that he has been hired by an employer at OnlineJobs.PH.  The offer was for a full time position as a Virtual Assistant.

Is a Resume Enough?

All Smiles. Ronald Ramboanga gets hired while at the Davao Start Up Weekend

Like office career applications, a simple resume is sometimes not enough. Ronald advises that as an applicant, you should be conscious with the contents and details of your profile which will be seen by possible employers. It can be as simple and concise as you want, but the important information should all be there. For as long as these details are specific and true, employers will immediately see if they will consider you to be hired and give you the job.

More importantly, your future employers should also be able to verify your identity as well as the other credentials that you have provided.

“When I updated my profile, I made sure that I can verify my identity as a real person by uploading a photo and an ID issued by the government. With regard to rating your skills, always consider honesty in your personal assessment. You must not rate yourself that high if you are not that skilled,” Ronald advised.

Although it took several months before a good offer came along, it was clearly worth the wait. He was hired for a full time post with a respectable starting salary. Ronald’s client was very impressed with his skills and experience that he was hired immediately.  He wants to share his enthusiasm to other OnlineJobs.PH job seekers by giving these tips.

Top 5 tips to increase a worker’s chances of getting hired:

a. Upload a professional primary photo and not a regular selfie.

b. Upload an identification card issued by the government to verify your identity.

c. Complete all personal details especially the skills summary.

d. Rate your skills with with honestly.

e. When you apply, always proofread your cover letter. As much as possible, do not use saved templates.

5 steps to get hired faster

Ronald’s is just one of thousands of success stories at OnlineJobs.PH. You or a friend or loved one can be the next. All you need is courage to take the first steps. Upload your resume and complete the necessary details. To increase your chances, you should also take the skills tests found online. These are not mandatory, but taking them would show potential employers that you are more than qualified for the position they are looking for.

If you’re applying as a content writer or editor, it is to be expected that your English writing and vocabulary skills are above average. For other fields of expertise, a basic understanding of the English language and average communication skills are also expected since the potential employers are foreigners.

For Ronald, he is finally happy to find a job where his skills and experience are useful and appreciated.

“Thank you very much OnlineJobs for serving as a medium for me to get a full time job opportunity. With the type of services you rendered to online workers, I am given the privilege to work anywhere I want as long as I am comfortable to accomplish my duties and responsibilities. Your platform is what Virtual Assistants like me is looking for. I’ve been hired because clients trusted my profile since these clients already trust OnlineJobs.PH,” Ronald concludes.

    Hi there!

    I can perfectly relate with Mr. Ronald Ramboanga. I happen to look for a job through OnlineJob.Ph third week of June 2014 and got hired Fulltime on July 29, 2014. Not quite a long journey of trying and competing to get hired. I created my profile and upload the necessary documents, profile picture and took several online tests to comply in most Company’s requirements such as DISC, IQ Test and Basic English Tests. Not to mention, the more tests you are taking which yielded good scores, the more competent you will become as a Jobseeker. The more chances you will get hired! There were several Employers whom I underwent series of interviews, but of course, it is the process of Job Hiring. There will be individuals who will advance to the next round of interview, and there will be eliminated along the process. It was mixed emotions while getting to the final interview, at the same time, it is boosting my confidence as I usually get kind words and appreciated as to how competent I am as a VA. Despite of the good scores and good results in the interviews, there are more individuals better than we thought we are. Don’t get frustrated, it’s just part of the process. Don’t lose hope! There are much more opportunities in OnlineJob.Ph where you are perfectly fitted to a certain Job. Just keep on searching and equip yourself with boosting confidence, work on your profile and be honest as possible during interviews, also, it is important that your hard work should be coupled with faith in God. It’s worth the wait! I landed to a very considerate and very kind Employer. In return, I am doing my best to be worthy of his trust and his gratefulness. In fact, we are looking forward towards a long term working relationship. So guys, what are you waiting for? Try the different opportunities OnlineJob.Ph is offering. Goodluck!

    Got some questions here and hope someone would be kind to answer my queries as I am just new to this virtual jobs.

    1. Where can I find those online tests like those DISC, IQ Test and Basic English Test?
    2. What is the meaning of ID Proof? One job advertisement stated “with an ID Proof of 25″

    Your answer will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance. :)

      Hi Jennifer!

      1. Where can I find those online tests like those DISC, IQ Test and Basic English Test?
      You can find those tests here: http://www.onlinejobs.ph/testcontent

      2. What is the meaning of ID Proof? One job advertisement stated “with an ID Proof of 25″
      ID Proof is our system of verifying jobseeker identity. Basically, the higher your ID Proof score, the more sure we are that the jobseeker profile belongs to a real jobseeker and not a fake. You get an ID Proof score once you sign up for an Onlinejobs.ph jobseeker account.

      • Rose Marie C. Rivera says

        Hi, how would I be able to get my ID PROOF to 99? I’ve uploaded all the ID’s required, picture, FB connect, Skills, CV. pretty completed my profile but still my ID PROOF is low reason why I can’t apply to any job, I was already having doubts that this isn’t for real, but a few days back my friend told me that someone from Onlinejobs.ph messaged her and she was able to work and her profile have 99 ID proof and knowing that she only opened her account 3 times. I need help. thanks.

  5. Paul says

    As someone who has employed several VA’s over the past 2 years, I can tell you that the biggest factor next to skill is trust. fifty percent of the VA’s we employed proved to be unreliable by not showing up for work or having many reasons why the task was not completed in the agreed time allocated.

    I’m happy to say that the other 50% were absolute treasures to work with, friendly, reliable and competant. Most of all, enthusiastic about doing the job. I will be looking for another VA this year to add to our company.

    Thanks guys

    Thanks in advance.

  9. aspinaut says

    Hi there. I think I have done something wrong. I haven’t been reading stuff here before applying for a job so I was able to send a couple of application minus a sufficient covering letter which I belatedly realized. That was not proper, right?
    Anyways, I hope I can make amends with the next ones with whom I’ll be forwarding my application. It’s a lesson learned for sure.

        Hi ma’am Julia,
        I have the same problem with Mae. I was currently hired by a client on a part time basis. However, another job opportunity I applied to would also like to hire me part time. Do I have to ask permission from my current employer about that?

  11. patrick says

    hi
    how can i increase my id Proof i already taken test. I search other jobseeker. They have higher 50+ ID Proof without taken the test. Can you help increas my ID Proof

    Thanks,

    • says

      ID Proof is about providing lots of information to help determine your identity. If you only provide a small amount of honest information, then you’ll have a low ID trust score.

      Make sure that you have everything filled out…..facebook url, government id, picture, skill descriptions, etc. The more information that you provide, the easier it is for an employer to determine that you are who you say you are. Your ID proof score will be higher too.

      After updating your profile, the ID Proof score does not get updated right away, but will be automatically rechecked by the site in a day or so.

      • Mel Samson says

        Pleasant day!
        I just registered yesterday.. when I went back to my account it was showing my ID Proof is 39. I also decided to link my Facebook account, then my ID Proof updated to 33. Is this good? Actually I wanted to apply for a job posting but it was saying my ID proof is lower than required by the employer, it was posted ID proof 50. Highly appreciate if you can help me out.

    Hello,

    Is it okay to use a pseudonym or are we required to enter our full name in the personal info?

    • says

      Hi Bree!

      It’s much better if you use your real name in the personal info. The online jobs offered here are real jobs, with real salaries. So if you use a pseudonym, your salary might go to someone else.

    Thank you for having this kind of opportunity here. I wonder if you have age requirements at all,

    I have also some doubts about giving a government issued ID. One person I have read in the news gave his ID, and in the process, someone got money from GSIS by using his ID.

    I will have to register very soon.

    Thank you so much!

    • says

      Hi Judith,

      We are aware of that incident. Which is why we now blur out gov’t ID that are now uploaded in our database.

      We don’t have age requirements but we generally recommend that workers to be 18 and older.

    • says

      Hi Sunshine,

      Unfortunately, you can’t attach any documents in your skill summary field. What you can do is upload your resume or portfolio to Google Drive or Dropbox and leave a link that allows employers to view your resume.

    Hi, I noticed that my ID proof score decreased from 97 to 87. I just uploaded my gov’t id. What could be the reason for that?

    • says

      We regularly do manual verification for IDProof to ensure that the information shared is accurate. When there’s a major change in the profile, we lower to IDProof score temporarily so we can put it in our queue for verification. But don’t worry. Once your profile is verified (24-36 hours), we will adjust the ID Proof score accordingly.

    • says

      Instead of a government ID, you can also submit an NBI clearance. But even as a student, you can actually start the process of getting a government ID (SSS, driver’s license, passport). Having these government IDs will be really helpful when you start applying for a job.

When I was trying to return to the page, I couldn’t go back anymore to see the result. How do I get my IQ Test results since retaking the test is not allowed? When we want to apply for a job and we click the job posting link, we will go to the Contact Employer page. I just want to ask what we should put in the message box? Is there a required template to use or just freely introduce yourself and that your interested to apply for the job? I am hoping for your soonest reply. Thank you!
