A Chinese company is looking for online English teachers in the Philippines for its online education platform.
KAMI learned that about 30,000 Filipinos are needed by the company right now.
In a report by GMA News Online, digital learning firm 51Talk is hiring for online teachers that can teach the English language to young Chinese students.
“We need to attract 30,000 home-based online English teachers in 51Talk just for this year,” Jennifer K. Que said 51Talk’s country head.
The English teachers that will be hired will be working from the comfort of their homes now that there is still a threat of COVID-19 in the country.
According to 51Talk, the salary will start at P20,000 per month and it could go higher depending on the number of students and hours spent.
Applicants must be graduates of any course. Those without similar job experiences could apply as well, as long as they are willing to undergo training. The only qualifications are good command of English and passion to teach children.
For the technical requirements, one must have his own computer or laptop, wired internet connection, and a quiet workspace at home.
Now that there is a COVID-19 crisis in the country, about 2.8 million workers were affected including the ones who lost their jobs.
However, job seekers are urged by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to do background checks first of the companies they are trying to apply to.
