How was your experience of hiring a Filipino through or any other medium for Web design? What are the “do”s and “dont”s?

Answer by Julia Jasmine Madrazo-Sta Romana:

When hiring web designers or other Filipino workers through Onlinejobs. ph, here are a few things that you need to remember


  • Check the jobseeker’s IDProof score. IDProof is their way of making sure that the account is created by a legitimate jobseeker. This minimizes your risk of hiring a scammer or having your work outsourced to a less skilled worker.
  • Ask for a portfolio. It’s hard to assess their skill based on their account alone. A portfolio should give you a better idea of what they can do
  • Ask for work/character references.
  • Be realistic about your expectations. If you’re looking for a web designer, look for an amazing web designer. Don’t expect that awesome web designer to also be an SEO expert, a master copywriter, a rockstar VA, etc. It’s just not something most people can do and most of the people who claim to do this are lying through their teeth.
  • Write a good job post. You want to attract the best talent possible so be clear about what you expect from your workers and what they can expect from you.
  • Be patient. Finding the right worker is a lot like dating. Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find your prince.

  • Be cheap. Pay them according to their skill and experience.
  • Post your contact details on your job post, you’ll risk exposing yourself to scammers or fake workers.
  • Pre-pay for work. Protect yourself and pay after work has been delivered, not before.
