Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The rise in spending over the holidays and the improving economy has given businesses all over the country the shot in the arm it needed to grow and prosper during 2013. With Spring around the corner, small business owners can be ready for the seasonal spending boom when they hire qualified employees with OnlineJobs.ph.
John Jonas, owner and co-founder of OnlineJobs.ph explains how he’s created the best online recruiting experience:
“First, we focused on building our database, making sure we had the best Filipino workers available. Not only did we actively advertise to get as many job seekers into our database as possible, we also made sure they took also the tests necessary to measure their skills and qualifications. Many of our job-seekers have taken English skills test, IQ tests, and the DISC personality test to see if they have the right “personality” for the job.”
The process of recruiting, finding, and hiring qualified people usually takes a month, at least; too long for most business owners who need good employees immediately. OnlineJobs.ph can cut that time window down to a several days.
Jonas developed a large database of qualified Filipino employees and a system that would help make the process of hiring and finding the best online workers faster and easier.
“We categorize these job-seekers according to their skills. We have designers who are also writers or programmers. We have programmers who are also knowledgeable in SEO. We have programmers who are fluent in different languages. All you need to do check the box of each skill you want to see in your applicants on our Advanced Job-Seeker Search page and we’ll deliver a shortlist of the job seekers who are best qualified for the position. Then you contact them and begin the hiring process.”
This system on http://www.OnlineJobs.ph has allowed many business owners to shorten their head-hunting period to two weeks. Some were even able to find and hire the ideal candidate in a little under a week.
Despite these advances, Jonas admits that his system has some limitations. He often advises business owners to have realistic expectations when looking for employees with multiple skills.
“A lot of Filipinos have multiple skills but they don’t know everything. They’re usually really good in one area and mediocre in other areas. It would be impossible to find a Filipino virtual assistant who is, let’s say, an excellent programmer, designer and writer. It would be more realistic to find a VA who is an excellent programmer but a mediocre writer and an amateur when it comes to designing. Be realistic in your expectations and remember that these applicants are human.”
Since 2007, John Jonas has employed innovative methods teaching business owners how to increase efficiency and decrease cost by delegating labor to the Philippines.
