Maestro ang Akong Uyab Part 1

Ako si Dina. Ingon sa akong mga amega, ang saktong pangalan daw nako kay Dina Natuto. Nakasulti sila ana tungod sa nahitabo nako.

Aduna koy uyab sa una. Gwapo nga Maestro sa mathematics. Pero, nagbulag mi tungod kay layo kayo ang agwat sa among edad. Ako kinse; siya binte-singko. Pero para nako sa una, match daw kami. Kahinumdom pa ba kamo sa dula nga flames – kana bitaw i-match nimo ang inyong mga pangalan tapos ang mga letra sa inyong mga pangalan adunay meaning gamit ang F-L-A-M-E-S?

Ingon ana. Nabuang ko sa una tungod anang dulaa. Pero sa paglabay sa tulo ka tuig, nabuang na usab ako. Nahigugma na pud ko sa akong maestro sa college. Karon, desi-otso na akong edad; siya, traynta-uno.

Maestro ang akong uyab. Wala ko nanghambog ha. Nagsulti lang ko sa tinood. Maestro siya diri sa Misamis Oriental. Dili lang ko mag-mention ug name sa school kay naay maigo. Hello, wala ko gaingon nga naa si Dina sa USTP, TCC, or COC. Basta, taga-Misamis Oriental lang siya. Ug usa pa, kabalo na man sab mo nga gakahitabo man gyud ang teacher and student relationship. Nahitabo man kana nga relasyon sa hilom kay kuno, ingon nila, makauulaw. Kinsay gaingon? Peace!

Na-fall in love ko kay Sir tungod kay gwapo siya, humot, ug maskulado. Imagina kuno ninyo ang usa ka maskuladong lalaki, nagtindog sa imong atubangan, ga-lecture ug DNA and RNA, nasimhutan nimo ang mahalon niyang perfume, nakita nimo ang mahalon nga grano sa tela sa iyahang long-sleeve, ug nakasuot pa gyud siya sa brown niyang lapat na lapat nga pantalon. Nakakita ka sa gabutod sa iyang atubangan.

Unya, asa ka mutan-aw. Sa wala o sa tuo. Syempre, dili malikayan na makatan-aw ka sa iyang bukdo nga atubangan. Bukdo gyud kaayo. Medyo pi-ot iya pantalon. Busa makalingiw kag tan-aw sa wala ba o sa tuo para dili ka mabayot ug totok. Malibat ka ug pakarung-ingnon nga wala lang gatan-aw. Gapasumangil gyud ka ug lingi-lingi para lang dili ka makakita sa iyahang bukdo nga atubangan.

Pero, luhagan kaayo ang imong huna-huna. Ang dagan sa imong otok ming-abot na sa kintolimbo. Layo naka ug naabtan sa imong huna-huna hangtod sa nakita na nimo imong kaugalingon ug ang imong Sir nga nagdinaganay mo ug nagtampisaw kamong duha sa tubigan, diha sa kadagatan sa imong paghanduraw. Grabe gyud kalihok ang imong imahinasyon. Mao usab kana ang nahitabo nako. Perti gyud kalihokan. Ingon sa uban, gaki-at lang daw ko.

“Dina? What’s the answer?”

“Yes!”

Hasta nakong kurata. Gipangutana na di-ay ko niya sa among lesson sa biology. Pero ang akong tubag “yes.” Grabe ka awkward. Dili ko kabalo kung mukatawa ba ko o dili. Basta nabatian lang nako ang dugo nga nanagan sa kaugatan sa akong nawong ug pati na gyud sa akong aping. Gusto ko mag-teleport adtong higayuna.

“Unsay yes?”

Nagkapuliki ko ug tubag. Nangatawa na ang tanan nakong classmates. Ambot lang kong nahalata ba nila. Basin nangatawa lang sila sa sayop nga answer. Or basin pud nangatawa sila kay nasakpan ko nila sa akong huna-huna. Wala koy labot sa akong tubag. Bahala na. Syempre pa-weekend na man sab busa dili na kaayo ulaw kay mulabay na man ang Sabado ug Dominggo wala akong mga classmates.

“Happy birthday, anak.” Ingon sa akong Mama. Birthday di-ay nako karon. Natunong pa gyud ug Dominggo. Gi-imbitar nako ako tanang classmates. Nangaon ming tanan sa handa ni mama ug papa. Pero gi-text nako si Sir nga birthday nako para maka-anha siya. Crush man gyud nako siya. Pero ako siya gi-ingnan nga unya nalang sa gabii siya muanhi kay naa pa ako classmates.

“What time?”

Inglesero kaayo si Sir. Maskin sa text kay English iya tubag. Tood pa di-ay, ikaduha na nako niyang text. Ang una, ako siyang gi-invite nga manuroy mi sa View Deck sa Claveria. Wala siya mingtunga kay ingon niya, nag-check daw siya ug papel. Ingon ko, mutabang ko ug check para mahuman. Pero ingon siya, kaya na daw niya. Ambot niya. Hard to get. Abi nako ug babae lang ang hard to get. Pero ako kay easy to get.

Kadyot lang ha, basin mangutana mo nganong aduna koy number ni Sir. Mao kini ang nahitabo. Akong gipangayo iyang number kay magtext lang ko kung naa ko pangutana sa assignments ug difficult topics. Ingon ana lang. Wala nay laing rason. Perti gayud ka desperada. Go lang ng go! Ug sa permiro, nagdumili siya muhatag sa iya number. Pero ako siyang gi-pugos. Walay ulaw, basin maunhan ko sa uban. Naa labay lain diha sa daplin nga gapa-nilap lang. Pak, ganern! What Dina wants, Dina gets. Charmos kaayo. Basta laban lang para sa ekonomiya.

“Dili man ko gabinuang Sir.”

Natandog siguro ang iyang ego kung sa psychology pa. Ug sa iyang pagtoo nga basin makaingon ko nga hugaw siya ug huna-huna, gihatag na lang niya ang iyang number. Mao naka-text ko sa iya karon. Nag-text ko nga birthday nako.

“Mga 7 PM Sir.” Ang akong tubag sa iyang pangutana sa text.

Ug sa dihang ming-abot si Sir. Naka-jogger pants lang siya nga color navy blue. Lapat na lapat ang jogger pants niya sa iyang dagko nga paa. Naka-white V-Neck shirt siya na lapat na lapat pud sa iyang sexy nga lawas. Naa siya tattoo. Wow, dagdag points sa ako. Mao di-ay ga-longsleeve siya sa klase namo. Tapos, minglingi ko sa akong igsoon na beki ug babaye, nakatan.aw di-ay pud sila. Naglaway si Mira. Nag-ihi ihi sa kanindot ni Sir. Perti ga yud sila makatutok. Nalibat si beki. Kung makatan-aw silang duha, murag gihubuan na nila si Sir sa ilang mga mata.

“Kinsa siya?” Ingon sa beki nga tingog sa akong luyo, ang akong bayot nga igsoon.

“Ang akong teacher sa Biology.” Ang akong tubag.

“Kanamit gid!” Ingon dayon siya samtang ang iyang mata halos mulugwa na sa iyang balayan. Nakapanglab-ok pa. Gi-uhaw! Minglingi ko sa toong bahin. Nakita nako ang akong igsoon nga babaye samtang gatulo ang iyang laway. “Mira, ang panyo girl.” Ako na siyang gi-ingnan nga trapuhan na niya ang ga-tulo niyang laway. Wala nakoy mahimo nila. Sige. Pag-imagine pa more. Basta ako, i-entertain nako sir Sir kay siya ang bisita. Ug siya ang akong atubangon ug silbihan. Charmos! Magpa-alila lang sa ko karon. Charot!

“Sir, salamat sa pagtambong sa party. Pero, ikaw nalang usa kay nanlakaw na akong mga classmates ug silingan.” Mao ang akong pasiuna nga istorya. Ingon sa tambay namong silingan, “istoryahe ko diri!”

“Wow! Okay kaayo. Para wala nay mag-saba sa lamisa.” Naka-smile si Sir. Ang iyang manga-ngipon nga puti kaayo nag-amag maskin pa sa ngitngit nga sala. Wala mi giputlan ug koryente ha. Unsa nalang kaha ang ikasulti sa tsismosa namong mga silingan. Gituyo lang namo nga ngitngit para tsada tan-awon ang salida. Ako dayon siyang gi-andaman ug pagkaon. Mingtabang dayon nako ang akong igsoon nga beki ug si Mira para mag-prepare kami sa foods samtang si Sir naa sa sala. Diha lang namo siya gipakaon para makakita siya sa movie nga The Next Three Days. Usa ni siya ka American thriller film adtong  2010 ni Paul Haggis nga ang gadala nga artista sina Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks. Maestro man gud si Russell Crowe basin maka-relate si Sir.

Nagkaon na si Sir. Mingaw kaayo ang sala. Tingog lang ni Russell Crowe ug Elizabeth Banks lang ang ga-istorya.

“Happy Birthday, Dina.” Ang tingog nga ming-guba sa kahilom sa akong hunahuna sa sala samtang gakaon pa si Sir. Gwapo siya tan-awon nga gakaon. Wala siyay pakemi-kemi. Lalaking-lalaki kaayo. Tungod siguro sa mature na si Sir. Ako diri kuragan lang gyud. Kaon lang siya ng kaon hangtod nga ming-ingon siya nga busog na daw siya. Samtang ako ug ang akong igsoon, sige ug totok niya. Ga-nganga lang.

Ako siyang gipa-inom sa akong gipalit nga red wine. Mahalon ang red wine ha. Sa savings baya nako na para makapalit lang ko ug para naa koy mai-serve niya. At least, nag-effort sab ko.

“Wow! Wine.” Naka-smile si Sir. Medyo nahalata na niya. Ambot lang pero medyo nahalata na may gusto ko niya. Haha. Tinood man sab.

Gikidhatan ko niya. Ang iyang kidhat nagdala ug mensahe nga nag-ingon siya nga salamat. Minglingkod siya gamay sa sofa samtang nagtan-aw siya sa salida. Nakipagsulti dayon siya sa amo tulo ka manag-igsoon. Nangutana siya kung asa daw ang among ginikanan. Ingon ko naa sa kwarto sila mama ug papa kay gapahulay. Makipag-sulti daw siya sila. Busa nakulbaan ko. Basin mamalaye na siya. Haha. Ambisyosa. Dili di-ay. Ingon niya nga lain daw kaayo nga wala daw siya makipagsulti sa ako parents. Tigulang na man daw siya busa makipagkita siya nila ni mama ug papa.

“Maayong gabii, Nay… Tay.” Ang iyang gi-ingon.

“Maayong gabii diha, Sir.” Wow, gi-briefing na nako ang akong parents oy. Ako silang giingnan nga mag-behave sila basta naa si Sir. Lahi man gud si Sir kay murag dili siya ga-joke. Bisan pa ug brusko nga gwapo siya tan.awon, maklaro nga gikan siya sa usa ka adunahang pamilya.  Usa pa, limited lang siya kung mangutana. Pero medyo nakahalata na pud sila mama ug papa. Nakahalata sila  nga mature na si sir ug naa koy gusto sa ako maestro. Pagkahuman nila magkasulti ni mama ug papa, nananghid na pud sila na magpahulay na sila kay gikapoy sila sa prepara sa pagkaon sa akong birthday. Pero, nakahalata si mama ug papa nga naa koy gusto sa ako maestro gyud. Mingkidhat man sab gud sila. Murag nagustuhan nila si Sir. Ako kaha, nagustuhan ba usab ako ni Sir? Ang ako daw nga mata kay gakislapkislap ingon ni Mama. Ingon pa sa akong Tita, babaeng uwagan daw ko. Pero joke ra kadto niya. Kinsa man gud ang dili ma-attract sa hitsuara sa akong maestro. Panit ug nawong palang, sud-an na. Hehe. Makakatawa gyud ka kung maghuna-huna kay lain na dayon musulod sa imong huna-huna. Gawas pa ni-ana, gatudlo siya ug biology. Makapangutana ngano ga-tudlo siya ug biology. Murag talag-saon kaayo nga lalaki mag-tudlo ug biology. Ang uban man gud kay mga babae ang teacher. Karon, kung imo siyang tan-awon, gwapo gyud kaayo siya. Murag dili lang siya biology teacher. Pero kay wala siguro available na subject para mag-tudlo sa iyaha field, busa ga-lecture nalang siya about biology. Kung manamit man gud siya, mura siya ug artista. Six feet and two inches tall, white complexion. May mga tattoo. Naka-trim ang mga balahibo sa iyahang hitsura. Taas kaayo ang ilong. Basta, mangurog ko kung makit-an nako siya. Labi na gyud sa klase, maka-in love ang iyahang pag-pronounce sa mga words. Ang iyahang deep voice kay murag pareha kang Chris Hemsworth kanang gadala sa Thor ba sa The Avengers ug sa Thor pud nga salida. Sakto kaayo si beki sa iyang gi-ingon nga kanamit gid.

Nagduha ka oras sa balay si Sir. Ako na siyang gihatod sa iyang motorbike sa kalsada atbang sa among balay.

Nakuratan si Sir. Ako mang gud siyang gigakos samtang nakalingkod siya sa iyang motorbike. Sa iyang pagka-kurat, na-plastar nako ang akong kamot sa iyang atubangan. Nakahikap ko ug humok nga butang. Naka-gunit na ba kamo ug sea cucumber? Ingon-ana kahumok. Gusto ko mangutana ug unsa kadto. Pero wala na lang. Gipaningot siya ug ang iyahang mga singot kay labaw pa sa Victoria Secret kahumot. Mura ko ug mabuang. Wala siya tingog kadtong ako siyang gigakos. Pero hugot lang akong pag-gakos sa iyaha para mabatian nako ang pitik sa iyahang kasingkasing bisan pag naa rako sa luyo nag-gakos. Mura ko ug naa sa Cloud 9 kay wala nakoy makita sa tanan – kami rang duha. Dili man sab ko makit-an sa ako mga igsoon ug ginikanan nga ga-gakos ko niya kay ngitngit man pud. So, naka-ingon ko sa self na sige pa, gakos pa more…

Kadtong iya nakong gi-atubang, iya nakong gigakos pud. Pero sa kadali lang kay basin naa siguro makakita. Teacher baya siya ug studyante ko. Tapos, naka-smile lang siya pagkahuman niya ug gakos sa ako. Wala pud siya nangutana ngano ako siyang gigakos. Kabalo ko nga kabalo siya na love nako siya. Pero, basin dili lang siya mahilig mangutana. Dili ko assuming ha. Daghan gaingon nako nga assuming daw ko.  Pero sige na lang. Kamo na ang mag-judge. Bawal laba ang judgmental ingon diha sa noon-time show sa GMA.

“Salamat sa pag-anhi sa akong birthday Sir.”

“Hehe. Salamat, pud.”

Pagka-lunes niana. Nagkita kami sa klase. Parang casual lang si Sir. Wala siyang reaksyon sa nahitabo namo adtong ni-aging gabii nga ako siyang gigakos. Wala gani nakabalo ang akong mga classmates nga nag-adto pud siya. Hilom lang ang tanan.

Nahuman na ang usa ka termino sa biology class namo. Gipasar ko ni Sir busa graduating nako. Pero dili na nako makakita ni Sir Bernard. Pero, okay lang. At least, nagkasulti man sab mi adtong birthday nako sa among balay. Nakagakos pa gyud ko niya. Kung dili man kami magkita sa fourth-year nako, okay na lang. Pero sakit sa akong dughan. Murag wala man gud gusto si Sir nako. Iyaha ra man siguro ko gitaga-an sa oras para malipay ko.

Karong fourth-year college nako, dili na nako siya maestro. Back subject ra man gud  nako kadto. Medyo laay kaayo kay wala nakoy inspirasyon. Usa pa, maestro si Sir. Basin sa iyahang huna-huna dili kami bagay sa usa ug usa. Pagkahuman sa akong klasi, maghulat ko ug jeep para diretso nako sakay paingon sa balay. Samtang paingon nako gate sa school, mingtingog ang akong cellphone.

“Dina, naa ko sa wala nga bahin sa gate. Medyo layo lang sa gate para dili ta makita sa mga tao.”

Nagtext si Sir. Ngano kaha. Birthday ba usab niya? Manan-aw ba kami ug sine? Mangadto na ba kami sa View Deck? Sa Mang-Inasal? Sa Jolibee? Daghan kaayo ang akong pangutana. Nanagna na lang ko. Pag-abot nako sa pwesto kung asa siya naghulat, nakita nako ang nakaparada niyang Hi-Lux. Ug ming-abre ang side door sa sakyanan.

“Sakay na!” Ang gi-ingon ni Sir.

…Atangi ang sumpay sa istorya nila ni Bernard ug Dina…

5 Reasons Why Foreign Employers Hire Filipinos

Most foreign employers who start their outsourcing businesses will always consider their costs and labor forces. Some of them have to build buildings, rent offices, hire employees, spend money on commercial advertising, and the like. American employers, for example, will spend much money on paying American employees. Considering an $8 an hour or $211.36 in a day for an average American population, American employers can save money if they choose to outsource their jobs to the employees in the developing countries. So, they find their employees across the borders, set criteria and qualification requirements, and other recruitment processes.

And, many foreign employers hire skilled Filipino professionals. They can hire a number of these Filipinos who possess great skills. For example, they can hire web developers who develop and design their websites. They can hire freelance web content writers who can fill plenty of articles on their sites. They can also hire many Filipinos who can be appointment setters, market development associates for a real estate, social media/SEO managers, motion graphics designer for lyric videos, a full-time copywriter for fitness centers, viral YouTube video editor, talented premiere or FCPX editor, WordPress website designer and developer, video editor expert, and many others. These foreign employers usually go to this website to hire more Filipino experts who can build their teams.

The question now concentrates on why foreign employers hire Filipino employees online. There may be some reasons; however, a few of them are the most common:

Effective Communication Skills

Filipinos can speak and write English. They can communicate and even comprehend the English language. Despite the number of languages in the country, Filipinos learn to master the English language. Filipinos learn English because they use the language in the Philippine media and classrooms. Some may be fluent in both spoken and written language; others may be intermediate and advanced. Foreign employers can easily give instructions regarding their ways to perform the tasks.

Attitudes toward Work

Filipinos are happy people. They always laugh and smile at things. They have positive dispositions in life despite the difficulties. In other words, they always see the positive light behind those struggles. When it comes to jobs, they are very optimistic. They become motivated to perform the tasks and complete them. When employers ask them to go over the tasks again, they will always revise them until they finish them. They are dedicated to complete the tasks being assigned to them.

Low Compensation Package

Filipino employees only receive the minimum wage. Depending on the regions where they minimum wages differ, Filipinos feel fine as long as the pay is on time. Foreign employers take advantage of this instance. However, foreign employers do not pay the minimum wages for these Filipino employees. They just pay them above the minimum wages. For Filipino employers, they only pay professionals with entry-level jobs from ₱10,000.00 to ₱15,000.00. Foreign employers, on the other hand, will offer salaries from ₱20,000.00 to ₱35,000.00. Since the jobs are done at home, Filipino employees can earn more than the jobs in the city and the country in general. Therefore, foreign employers hire these skilled Filipinos.

Sense of Direction and Focus

Foreign employees choose to hire Filipino employees because of their sense of direction and focus. When employers give them those instructions and deadlines, they manage to complete the tasks. They get the instructions right away since they understand the instructions in English.

Welcoming and Responsive

Filipino employees are welcoming and responsive. They always offer their employers with great aura and smile. They always say “yes” and agree on things to make things easier to do. When they have questions, they always ask and manage to fulfill their tasks. These positive characters and personalities of Filipinos make them the top-skilled and top-performing professionals in the world.

Mastering Your Craft to Succeed

Most students now try to imagine how to succeed in life. Before graduation, they think and feel afraid of not landing on their decent jobs. So, they join in various activities and training programs to improve their skills. Many of these students choose to study their specific programs, such as business, engineering, humanities, management, mathematics, science, and technology, and they finish these course pathways for years. After learning these course programs, they struggle to find their specific jobs that suit their professional career paths. What a terrible scenario!

After graduation, some of the young professionals who can hardly find their desired jobs strive to do blogging, vlogging, and entrepreneurial methods. Somehow, some of these activities do not end up happily ever after. At some point, they spend much time for job hunting; however, they may lose the courage to search for available jobs in the classified ads or company websites. These young professionals can land on other jobs outside their specific fields of discipline if they are fortunate enough to find one. Because of this situation, many of these young professionals get frustrated. They think that they burn their midnight candles without landing on decent and respectable jobs. In the end, they lose their courage to pursue the career of their dreams.

However, these young professionals do not need to find jobs to succeed. They can sell their expertise and services. As long as they master their crafts, they can use their skills to prosper. For example, young professionals can earn a living through advertising and selling their expertise. If they can communicate and talk to people, they can be masters of ceremonies, speakers, and hosts for the events. If they know graphic arts and web designs, they can blossom in the market. As well, if they know how to sing, they can perform on stage and various events. If they know how to walk and train dogs, they can earn high incomes by doing so. In other words, sell your expertise and services.

The possibility of success is endless. You only need to take a few steps a little bit further. Be a tutor, a singer, a personal gym trainer, a podcast speaker, a writer, a freelance web designer, and more. All you need to do is master your craft to become experts in the specific fields of discipline.

Certainly, mastering your craft gives you an advantage over others. Once you do, you succeed in life.

Police to Require Travel Authority for all Travelers to Enter CDO Despite Mayor Moreno’s Statement

Misamis Oriental (June 10, 2020) – Mardy Hortillosa II, the spokesperson of the Police Regional Office (PRO), announced that police officers in Cagayan de Oro would continue to issue travel authority for those passengers or travelers who made an entry in the city.

Mardy Hortillosa II said that the government needed to regulate the movement of people or travelers without important activities. Hortillosa pointed out the relevance of travel authority.

“The city will not require any travel authority to all residents who wish to go to the city,” Mayor Oscar Moreno said, on Tuesday, June 9.

“I will advise Colonel Dampal to observe that,” Mayor Oscar Moreno added.

The Police Regional Office (PRO) emphasized that CDO Mayor Oscar Moreno remained cogent and praiseworthy to ease the burden experienced by the passengers and travelers. As well, the PRO mentioned that regulating the movement and activities of people without important activities in the City and Misamis Oriental would curb the spread of the coronavirus in line with IATF Resolution # 43 on paragraph A, sub-paragraph 4A, “the movement of all persons in areas placed under MGCQ shall be limited to accessing essential goods and services, for work in the offices or industries permitted to operate hereunder, and for other activities permitted.”

As publicized, the said travel authority provision prompted by the PRO-Northern Mindanao could curtail the spread of the virus. “Implementing the Travel Authority mandate could shrink the possible transmission of the virus,” Hortillosa said.

Hortillosa accentuated that the PRO-10 would respect the acumen and decision of the city mayor. However, the PRO-10 would stand guard and raise this concern to the regional IATF.

Finally, Hortillosa stated that the PRO-Northern Mindanao management would call on Mayor Oscar Moreno’s concerns to seek for further actions from the Regional IATF.

How Single Dads Succeed in Parenting

Photo from flipboard.com

It is unusual to read articles, heard news reports, and watch videos about single dads and their plights and skirmishes in their parenting situations. We only have moms and their heroic acts. Oftentimes, we consider these single moms as dads for their children due to their abilities to provide their basic needs and protection in times of fear and danger. As such, we only highlight single moms due to their relevance to child care and protection. Because we  only emphasize these moms and their struggles, we forget to mention and introduce single dads, too, in terms of their parenting and economic support.

Yet, we often wonder if we read and heard stories about single dads. We may never be aware of their hardships and their struggles as single moms do. If there may be a few stories out there to tell us how single dads endure their hardships for their children, we may be glad to celebrate and thank those single dads who work hard to be good fathers for their children.

Honestly, single fathers face several challenges, too. They, as well, confront the horrifying struggles whether or not they can manage their tasks well. They even want to make sure that they perform multiple tasks, such as doing the laundry, cooking food, sending their children to school and teaching them after school, working hard to pay for their basic needs and children’s tuition fees, and going to church on Sundays. For that reason, they exert much effort in performing their roles since their children will need their care and presence.

Moreover, some single dads choose to be better dads. They cherry-pick to live with their children, work hard to feed them, and give them their basic needs, as well as their wants. They never surrender their roles as givers and protectors to their children despite the absence of their wives. They become committed to play their roles as moms and dads.

In the end, single dads thrive in their parenting skills. Those who become hands-on in nurturing and teaching their children can succeed in their parenting styles. Single dads who work as freelancers can monitor their children and can raise their kids according to their desired parenting styles. Since freelancing jobs are home-based, single dads can provide children’s financial assistance and moral support, demonstrate paternal love, foster effective care, and promote welcoming family relationships. Besides, they dedicate themselves to find means and ways to survive every single day in finding jobs and performing parenting tasks. In this way, single fathers succeed in their parenting.

Hiring Your Web Content Writer

Hiring your web content writer these days requires screening tests. You may even ask for samples when you ask them to send their CVs or resumes. At first, you are scared that you mistakenly hire someone from the World Wide Web. So, you give your applicants new sets of tests to determine their potential skills and their behavior to finish the jobs and meet the deadlines.

Now, you probably know various sites that give you professionals who lend their services. You sign up and start searching for professionals who can write content for your website. The thing is, you are reading this article about employers who seek for web content writer. Are you contacting the writer of this article? Of course, you do.

However, if you want different sites to choose professionals, you can visit elance.com, freelancer.com, onlinejobs.ph, and upwork.com. These are all legitimate websites in which you can access, browse, and contact your new content writer. Fortunately, you have all the choices to choose highly qualified writers.

On the contrary, if you want to go back to the author of this article and see his profile and his writing skills, you can finish reading this article and spot any difference. Most likely, you can hire him or contact your friends who have been looking for a web content writer. I do not want to send samples of my work. Upon reading this article, you know exactly that this writing serves as a sample.

And yes, this writing is a pitch. This is a new of searching for jobs or pitching content writing jobs in which a writer writes an article citing his writing skills. Or perhaps, you require your applicants to take grammar tests or sentence constructions. If this situation is the case, you may do so.

However, as a web content writer, I feel tired of sending samples where I fail to receive feedback from employers. Possibly, I did not get through the recruitment process, so I was left dangling in the balance. Prospective employers ask for samples, resumes, and portfolios for just 2 cents a word, and the process of hiring a web content writer is taxing and tedious.

Please drop the act. Some content writers do not waste time. Hire someone if you want to employ one. You do not have to ask a thousand applicants for only two available positions. You are very unreasonable about that! Or else, you end up writing your content.

For those who prefer to hire the author of this article, please visit his account profile and see for yourself.

Being a Content Writer

Finding jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic seems very challenging. Due to a social distancing policy and a travel restriction imposed by the local and national governments, we cannot stroll around the city to search for jobs in some brick-and-mortar institutions. We remain at home without doing anything. As well, many companies and large-scale business organizations stop their operations due to coronavirus. As we struggle to find jobs to support our family members, we cannot ignore the fact that we do not have food to serve on the table. As such, we need to secure decent employment.

However, various jobs sprout online. Many companies nowadays decide to migrate their operations and practices. For example, companies will hire academic writers, customer service representatives, graphic designers, online tutors, virtual assistants, web developers, and many others. For that reason, many of these companies cherry-pick some online services and hire applicants to fill their jobs.
