How did I get my first online job?
May 2014 was my big break in working online. It was a research and article writing for an American client. It was my first online job! Curious how I got it?
I find myself looking a job ad in Craiglist (a classified advertisement website). I applied through email expressing my interest to the job. After several days my client replied through email, she said that I am hired. She asked when I can start to work. She also said she will pay me $2.00/hour through Paypal. I was so happy! I replied the email. The following day, I received an email from my client, she wrote in full detail the instructions of my job. That was it!
I got the job easy peasy. My first online job was unforgettable. My client did not ask for my resume. And no interview and test was done. It was also a long term job, more than 7 months! To boot, my client was so nice. She also pays pronto.
After this first online job, I have to experience the hardships of finding another job. I need to go the process of submitting resumes. I write and re-write cover letters, and do tests/exams. After my first online job, I was unfortunate to land a long-term job again. I have even scammed huhu.
My first online job was such a positive experience! It pushed me to have an online career. How about you? How did you get your first online job?
