Kirt’s thoughts regarding common questions about Filipino VA’s
Why do Filipinos like to work for American companies?
The Filipino culture is a very Americanized one. We also find it easier to communicate with Americans compared to other English-speaking nationalities, because their accent is more understandable to our ears. Moreover, Filipinos like working for American companies because of the peso-dollar exchange rate! Thirty bucks can provide three meals for a family of four in the Philippines in one day!
What are the risks for Filipino’s working for American companies?
Scammers are popping up like mushrooms. A lot of American companies offer work and get Filipino employees to perform tedious tasks, only to disappear without paying once the output has been submitted.
Is it better for a Filipino to work with a local company in the Philippines or a US firm?
What are the pros and cons?
Many Filipinos leave the Philippines to work abroad. It’s not true that there is a scarcity of employment opportunities in our country. There is a lot. However, the pay is less than motivating. Most Filipinos are overworked and underpaid, earning only $130 to $290 per month. This is why many Filipino parents sacrifice leaving their children to a relative, so that they can earn more by working overseas. Stories about broken families and embittered children of overseas Filipino workers are among the most popular movies in the country. To get a job with an American company online gives many Filipinos a chance to earn more without having to leave home.
