Ever dream of having a remote job? With traffic in the Philippines worsening (3-hour commute on a normal day!), it might be the best time to find other options.
You don’t want to wake up at 4 AM just to be barely on time for a 9 AM – 6 PM shift. And don’t get me started when it starts to rain or a singer having a concert. Expect to add around 1 to 2 hours more!
Think about all the time you can save from working from home. You can spend it to learn new things you wanted. You can finally start things your passionate about. Or maybe just spend more time with your family.
The problem is, it’s not really that easy for the aspiring ones. You have joined freelancing groups. You are equipped with the skills you learned from legitimate freelancing courses.
But why can’t you find your clients? (Of course, this is assuming you applied for quite a number of companies. 1 application a week is terrible effort.)
This is where an agency comes in! Finding jobs in a legitimate remote working agency can connect you to the right companies with your current skills. These are 4 reasons why you should find remote work through an agency.
They Have a Large Network of Clients
Agencies are connected with businesses all over the world. They have a large network to connect you to possible clients. A lot of companies outsource their HR to agencies. Therefore, if you are connected to them, you might be the first in line if a job opportunity arises.
It’s alright to be rejected by companies. It’s normal to sift your way to find the one that will accept you. But this costs you time! Agencies are trained to match you with clients who are looking for your specifications.
If they connect you with a client, they already did a background test. You just need to wing it during the client interview.
Experts in the Market
Agencies are experts in the job market. They know what is currently in demand. In fact, they might even have first-hand job listings before it reaches outside the job market. Partnering with one assures you that you can take advantage of it,
Free Guidance and Feedback
The clients pay the agency to find the talent they are looking for. They have a vested interest in you. That’s why they are willing to give free guidance and feedback.
If you succeed, they succeed as well!
Here are 4 notable legitimate remote working agencies for different jobs in the Philippines:
This is just a starting point. A lot of successful freelancers, even the ones who currently own remote working agencies, started careers with the help of agencies. When you get accepted, have the initiative to learn new skills and hone the ones you currently have.
Who knows, you might be the one owning your own agency in the future. Good luck!
