Paano nga ba mag-trabaho online?

Anu-ano ang mga dapat gawin para makapag-work from home?

Yan ang mga kadalasang bersyon ng tanong na ito.

At sa tuwing naiku-kuwento ko na isa akong online freelancer, kumikita ng full-time income habang inaalagaan ang kanyang 4 na anak dahil wala kaming yaya, eto ang madalas na PM sa akin sa Facebook.

Ako - nagttrabaho sa laptop habang pinagsisilbihan ang aking TUNAY na BOSS =)

So, para sa kapakanan ng lahat na nagnanais matuto kung paano magtrabaho online, sasagutin natin ang mahiwagang tanong :

Paano nga ba mag-work from home?

Kung tutuusin, simple lang naman para makapag-umpisa.

Eto, ang 3 simple steps:

  1. Gumawa ng Online Profile.
  2. Mag-apply ng trabaho.
  3. Kumpletuhin ang task para matuwa si client and gumanda ang ratings ng Online Profile mo.

Ganun lang.. 🙂

Pero iisa-isahin natin ang bawat hakbang para mas lalo nating maintindihan. Paalala lang na bilang isang online freelancer, importante na meron kang:

  • Computer/Laptop (hindi sapat na phone or tablet lang)
  • At least 2 Mbps na internet connection
  • Nakakaintindi, nakakapagsulat, at nakakapagsalita ka ng Ingles (dahil madalas na foreigner ang clients natin)

Ang Bawat Hakbang Kung Paano Maging Online Freelancer:

1. Gumawa ng Online Profile.

  • Ni-rerecommend ko na magstart sa Upwork dahil eto ang pinakamalaki at sikat na freelancing platform.

Ano nga ba ang freelancing platform?

Maihahalintulad ang isang freelancing platform sa Facebook (isang social platform) kung saan, sa halip na ‘friends’ ang mahahanap mo, ‘clients’ or ‘tasks’ naman sa freelancing platform.

Bukod sa Upwork, madami pang ibang freelance platforms na pwede mong subukan. Pero sa ngayon, Upwork muna ang pagtuunan natin ng pansin.

Eto ang detailed guide kung paano mag-create ng profile: https://vabootcamp.ph/how-to-create-an-upwork-profile/

Pag may online profile ka na, dito ka maaring maghanap ng mga job posts na pwede mong applyan.

Base sa laman ng profile mo, mamimili ang mga clients ng pipiliin nilang i-hire na freelancer. Kaya make sure na maganda ang pagkakagawa mo nito at bigyan ng madameng effort, parang kagaya na rin ng pag-aayos mo ng Facebook profile mo.

  • Mag-upload ka rin ng portfolio items (samples of work, certifications, badges, etc.).

Ang portfolio ay proof ng skills mo at kung anong kaya mong gawin. Dahil sa online ka lang makakasalamuha ni client, mas convincing ka if may laman ang portfolio mo.

Kung marunong kang mag-Microsoft Word, mag-photoshop, mag-sulat ng blog, gawa ka ng samples at ilagay mo rito.

  • Mag-take ka ng skill tests para makita nila ang kakayahan mo, parang tulad lang to sa corporate na may entrance exam bago ka ihire.

Optional ang pag-take nito, pero syempre, dagdag ‘expert points’ kapag maganda ang results ng skill tests mo.

  • Set-up mo rin kung ano payment method na gusto mo gamitin para ka mabayaran.

Eto ang pinaka importante sa lahat siyempre gusto mong mabayaran ka sa tinrabaho mo di ba? Maraming options kung paano mo matatangap yun payments, pero eto ang mga peborit ko:

Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/ph/webapp/mpp/account-selection

2. Mag-apply ng trabaho.

  • Sumulat ng panalong cover letters.

Ang cover letter ay kagaya rin ng application letter. Dito mo iko-convince ang mga clients kung bakit ka nila dapat i-hire or ma-invite man lang para sa interview.

Makakatulong ang mga to para sa karagdagang tips:

Best Practice: https://vabootcamp.ph/6-cover-letter-templates-from-a-top-earning-seo/

  • Pag-tagumpayan ang mga interviews.

Kung sinunod mo ang mga articles na nasa taas, malamang makikita mo na ang sarili mo na naghahanda para sa isang interview.

Habang kinakabahan ka at na-eexcite at the same time, panuorin mo ‘tong informative video ni Jason Dulay kung paano mo ipapanalo ang interviews: https://vabootcamp.ph/handle-client-interviews/

  • Wag mahihiyang mag-follow up.

Kadalasan, sobrang busy ang mga clients kaya nakakalimutan nila mag-update sa’yo kung ano ang resulta ng inapplyan mong trabaho sa kanila. If medyo matagal na o isang linggo na ang nakalipas matapos ang interview, pwde mo na silang ifollow-up.

Eto, meron din akong isang isinulat kung paano ko toh ginawa:

3. Gawin ang trabaho sa abot ng iyong makakaya.

Kung umabot ka na sa huling step na ‘to, aba’y wagi ka na. Nakakuha ka na ng first online job mo! Congrats! Lahat ng iyong efforts na mapansin ng client ay napagtagumpayan mo.

Pero di dito natatapos ang lahat.

Ang panalong freelancer ay patuloy na magpapakitang gilas at magpapasikat sa kanilang mga clients sa patuloy na pag gawa at pag-provide ng mataas na kalidad ng trabaho.

Bakit? Para magtuloy-tuloy ang mga clients na ibibigay sa’yo.

  • Patibayin mo ang online credibility mo. Sa tuwing may nakukuha kang client, magbibigay sila ng ratings sa profile mo.

Syempre, dapat 5-stars ka parati dahil ito ang makakatawag pansin ng mas marami pang clients.

  • Pagtibayin rin ang relasyon mo sa iyong mga clients. Hindi porke’t sa online mo lang sila nakilala ay pababayaan mo nang mawala sila pagkatapos ng trabaho.

Isipino mo, kung na-impress mo ng husto ang iyong client, di ka niyan pakakawalan!

Ibig sabihin, magkakaroon ka ng long-term source of income! Pwede ka pa nilang i-chikka at i-recommend sa mga friends nila, so mas maraming income ang papasok sayo.

Eto ang pinaka-swak na paraan kung gusto mong maging full-time ang pagtatrabaho online. Ganito lang din ang ginawa ko hanggang sa nahigitan pa nito ang kinikita ko dati sa opisina.

4. Ulit-ulitin mo lang ang Steps 1 to 3.

Huwag kang huminto sa Upwork lang. Gumawa ka pa ng ibang online profiles sa iba’t ibang freelancing platforms and ulitin mo lang ulit yun steps sa itaas.

The more entries you have, the more chances of winning online ika nga 🙂

    1. I have no experience in a homebase job iam much willing to work since my hubby is the only one working and we have 2 kids studying in a private school. My question is, if i apply for a work is it possible if i can choice my working time or homebase jobs also required 8 hours working time per day 5 days a week
      Thank you very much for all your tips.

      1. Yes you can choose to apply to clients who are offering flexi schedules or you can also negotiate and tell the clients your availability. May mga clients naman na pumapayag na magwork ka on your own time sched as long as you deliver the task on the due date that they set.

  2. Hi, Thank you for this blog. Very helpful. I am a fulltime house for 5years with 2kids but currently residing here in UAE.

    Thanks for your tips but I have inquiry re the porfolio items you mentioned, what if I do not have any certifications or badges? Does it affect my application?

    Looking forward to your reply?

    Thank you,
    Hayren

  11. Good day! Paano kung android phone lang meron wlang laptop? Hindi ba pwd makasali sa group or work? Paano po yan kung ang ibang interested sa work cannot afford to buy laptops? Urgently, as a said requirements?

    1. You have to invest on a laptop or pc kase ikaw din mahihirapan magwork if phone lang gagamitin mo. Like if need mo ng MS word or excel mahirapan ka if phone ka magtatype. For the meantime you can go to internet shops siguro if wala ka pa budget to buy a laptop. Para pag nagkaclient ka na makakabili ka na.
