The Online Hunt for Jobs
By: Annabelle Chua
When we talk about summer, three things come to mind: the beaches, the heat, and, unfortunately, the long hours with absolutely nothing to do. In between barkada outings and perhaps summer classes in school, we often find ourselves staring at blank walls, and, surprisingly enough, wishing for school to start again and for us to be with our friends again.
Wishful thinking can only get us so far though. Another option would be to do something more productive with our time – such as a summer job perhaps. Instead of sitting back at home and wearing a hole into the couch, we’d be better off employing ourselves to more useful pastimes. One can earn extra bucks from restaurants and fast-food chains looking for part-time employees. Other shops are also looking for additional hands, now that school’s out and more young shoppers are expected. If you prefer being your own boss and working at your own time frame and within the comforts of a computer terminal, though, log online, and take a peek at the two sites below. They can be particularly useful for those who want to earn – online.
Deviant Art wasn’t created for jobseekers at the beginning. Technically, Deviant Art is a site where artists in general can showcase their works. Those interested in painting, photography, computer graphics, story-writing and so on can post their works there for the perusals of complete strangers across the world. Nowadays, though, people often hire artists from across the globe to do art pieces for them – for a fee. Deviant Art is one of the sites where people who are looking for artists go. If you’re particularly interested in photography or art or the like, you may want to get an account there, post your best works and advertise for artwork jobs.
This site is dedicated primarily to affiliate marketing in the Philippine setting. Affiliate marketing is a method of promoting a website, in which an affiliate is rewarded for every visitor, subscriber or customer who registers or buys products through his advertising and marketing efforts. It is a modern variation of the practice of paying finder's-fees to individuals who introduce new clients to a business. Businesses pay you a certain value depending on your agreement, either for each visit (pay-per-click), registrant (pay-per-lead), or each customer or sale (pay-per-Sale).
You only need your own website and of course, the business whose products you will be marketing. Check our www.philippinejobs.net for the full details. The beginning may be rocky, but it’s nothing that a little hard work can’t do. The best part of this online job is that unlike part-time jobs in shops, there is absolutely no limit on what you can earn. The more customers you invite, the more you can get.
