So there’s a couple different options. The one is you can go through an agency where they lease, they recruit Filipinos, they bring them into their offices, they mark them up, they lease them back to you. This is fine. It’s not the best solution, you know, it’s going to cost you 1000 to $2,000 a month.
For a person, they’re going to pay that person 400 to $800 a month. So there’s that, there’s a pretty big markup. And this is how I got started. But there’s just better ways today. So I didn’t love that situation.
So nine years ago, I started online jobs.ph, which is the biggest marketplace. Well, it’s kind of yeah, it’s the biggest marketplace for finding these Filipino workers.
So, to recruit, here’s, the best way to do it and what everybody ends up doing. You’re going to go to online jobs.ph, you’re going to search for whatever your skill is first. That’s the first thing to do, is to look at some resumes and see what you can find. Like, see if there is some skills there that exists for what you’re looking for which there is.
So there’s about a half a million, well, there’s more than half a million Filipino resumes on the site. They can do all kinds of stuff, they’re really good at it. So search and look at some resumes, then either post a job and let a whole bunch of Filipino workers contact you and apply to your job or start contacting those.
Start contacting workers according to your resume search, you know, like, narrowed down to like 200 in your search or 50 in your search, and start contacting them. Okay, so you’ve done in your job post and your contacting, you’re going to do one or two things where you’re going to, here’s what you’re gonna do.
You’re going to write a few details, but you’re not going to go into every single detail. There’s the biggest mistake I see people make when they post a job, is they say like, I need someone who can do this and this and this and this and this and this. And they have to be really, really good at this and this and this and this.
And if you have these other skills, this and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, it’s abundance, right? Like, that person doesn’t exist, right?
Like, I get these emails from people that are like, “Hey, I need a programmer who can modify WordPress, who can make really, really great and a really good designer”, and then they can write the content for the site, and they can do the marketing and they can do our social media posts. And they can write an E book for me and do the design the cover like, dude, there’s no such person, right? That doesn’t exist.
So focus on a task that you want to get done. Post a job, or start contacting people and don’t narrow it down to like one person who you want to hire before you start contacting 30 people. Okay, so you’ve posted a job and you’ve gotten a bunch of applicants, you’ve contacted a bunch of people, some of them have responded. Now your recruiting starts.
Yeah, I was gonna say like, is this the process that you actually have for yourself as well?
Yeah I’ll do either one of those, depending on how I feel about it. Usually, I start with contacting workers. And that’s a completely a personal preference.
