If you have ever been to the streets of Manila, one thing you are sure to remember is the early morning traffic. Being used to traffic myself in New Jersey, I really don’t mind it at all because the sole traffic jam I’m forced to endure on a daily basis is when I come home from rush hour. But many Filipino professionals have been enduring this situation for many years now when going to work and they hardly pay attention to it anymore.
Only when they get to travel to other countries can they fully realize the hell they have to up to with unforgivable traffic situation. But now days, they don’t have to travel to another country and experience going to work with zero traffic in the morning and even when their day ends. And online jobs are the reason for their optimistic celebration.
Online jobs for many Filipino professionals who are skilled in the English language, website design and other internet marketing jobs are regularly being created by major American and UK companies. The internet has already transformed a revolution of consumers now turning their purchasing power to the web.
In the America, companies like Best Buy, GAP, Disney just to name a few are currently planning of reducing their stores and developing more online shops to market their products. Heard the latest news about Black Friday? No – it’s not a Catholic holiday; it’s a day after Thanksgiving in the USA when consumers rush to the stores and spend thousands of dollars as the beginning of Christmas shopping. But Black Friday has a new rival – Cyber Monday!
Created by companies to encourage people to purchase online and educate them about how safe online purchases are and by far, Cyber Monday has surpassed the revenues of the once popular Black Friday. This only means that the public are starting to realize the convenience and power of online business and transactions.
This would mean that companies will require professionals to create and maintain their websites, consistently generate good website traffic and high search engine rankings. And many companies are eyeing outsourcing their projects to India and to the Philippines. If India has good computer workers, many Filipinos are obviously skilled in English and are superb writers to supply the blogs, articles and website content needed by these companies that desiring to have their online presence felt.
Without doubt, for Pinoy professionals who are seeking a respectable career without the need to leave their families behind to travel to a foreign country, online jobs definitely has become a blessing for them.
