Here are some tips on how to land the right online job for you.
- Choosing the Site. There a lot of sites that offers various online jobs nowadays. I have encountered quite a lot of these sites in my search for a job. The technique is to choose sites that don’t require a membership fee or some call it sign up or membership fee.
- Signing Up. Signing up for these sites require an email address which you can get for free through Yahoo mail, Gmail, Hotmail and etc. I suggest that one should create a separate email address to use solely for these purposes. You don’t want the email you use in facebook or other social networking sites winding up in the wrong hands do you?
- Profile.Your profile is a very important component that can make or break your future employment. Some may say I’m exaggerating but this is a fact. Your profile should contain facts about you or your skills because some employers go through worker profile to see if they can hire someone that would fit in what their looking for.
Now that we are done with the introduction part, let’s tackle a more in depth topic about online jobs. Here we discuss the essential attributes one should posses in order to survive the world of online jobs.
First, one must be patient in browsing through sites and pages for job openings (there are thousands of jobs if you look in the right places). It took me almost a month or so to get my first interview that eventually lead to a fulltime job for me. For me this first attribute is the most important. If you are new to the internet/computer world, like I was before, you should start applying for jobs that offer free/ paid training sessions. That way you’ll get paid while you learn.
Second, you must be willing to learn new things and try new things on your own. For example, many hire workers who know how to manage WordPress blogs. When I learned about that I signed up for a free WordPress blog and started to tweak the site so as to learn. It’s that simple. One must learn to take risks.
Third, when you land your first job give it your all and don’t hesitate to ask questions to your boss. Most online outsourcing sites have a feedback tab where employers can put feedbacks on your work performance in a given project.
