Homebased jobs
The summer season is fast approaching. Before you splurge on your scheduled summer getaway, make sure you have enough budget for it.

If you’re still financially dependent on your parents, the thought that instantly pops out to your head is: “No allowance this summer. What shall I do?” If you’re already working, increasing the channels of your income is a good tactic.

One way is to go is to apply for a part-time job. It will be a lot easier and better if you find a home-based one. A part-time job in the comfort of your home for summer sounds like a wise move.

You are most probably sitting the whole weekend in front of your computer, so you can maximize your internet and computer use while earning. Be sure you have a stable internet since most of your work will be dependent on it. To start, find the best broadband deal that is suitable for your needs and budget and you’re good to go.

Top Home-Based Jobs

Virtual Assistants

Approx. Pay: Php125 – Php300 / hour

If you’re up for a customer service experience, this fits you best and the most exciting part of it is that you’ll be working at home. This job requires you to assist a certain company’s customers.

If it’s a bank, you will receive or make calls with their customers. Some are much easier as they only require word processing skills because the job is non-voice, but of course, with lower pay.

Since you’ll be working online, and you will not go anywhere else (you hate the sun outside when you’re not supposed to plunge in the beach, right?), working at home this summer could be this productive.

With the perfect combination of your skills, interest, stable internet and workable computer, your summer break could be the perfect season for you to earn money.
