About John Jonas: John had regular "work" for 8 months following graduation, and his main goal at the time was to be able to quit. He was able to quit in 2004 and has since worked from home himself.

He felt he was onto something great when he first employed someone from the Philippines in January 2006. Since then, he discovered that having Filipino workers on the team makes life much easier for most individuals. Now he gets to play a lot of golf, spend a lot of time with his family, and go backpacking in the middle of the week. Because of their excellent work, Jonas works roughly 17 hours weekly. According to him, what's terrific about recruiting Filipino labor is how it has altered their lives. They get to work from home, earn a reasonable wage, enjoy a higher level of life, and raise their children independently, a luxury that most Filipino parents do not have.


About OnlineJobs.ph: They alleviate people's problems by linking employers needing assistance with workers needing work. Their team works hard to instill trust in everyone's outsourcing experience. Thousands of entrepreneurs have succeeded because of it. They focus more on getting long term permanent help or staff that functions similar to an employee without the commitments of having an employee attached to it.
