OFS Hiring Advice for you – Practical Advice

Let me give you a crash course on how you can find the perfect Online Filipino Specialist for your business.

In the video, I answer the top 4 questions about hiring an OFS.

How do you find someone?

It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  • Browse the workers’ profile
  • Post a job
  • Interview

 What do you look for in an OFS?

This depends on what you’re looking for. These work for me:

  • Attention to detail
  • English skills, if it’s a technical skill, I won’t dwell on their skills too much
  • How quickly they respond
  • Personality

How much should they cost?

  • You can get entry-level experience for as low as $400/month or someone really good to $2000/month.   

Are there things that are negotiable and non-negotiable?

  • Everything is negotiable. Work hours, how you pay, when you pay, part-time or full-time.
  • It’s essential to try outsourcing and see if it works for you.
