Direct Hire Requirements

Posted by:

According to Work Abroad Safely, Direct Hire is also known as Name-hire. It means that the worker is able to secure an overseas job without the assistance or participation of any agency here in the Philippines.

In this video, HayPinas explains what a direct-hired OFW should do next after getting a job abroad . Remember: Always check with the concerned agencies for the complete requirements. Make sure that the offer is legitimate and you’ve been issued a work permit which is the same as to the position you applied for.

 

It is important to note the important numbers where OFWs abroad may seek for help should they need assistance. Check out the

Whoa! Pinoy Uber Driver Earns $252,000/Year

Posted by:

While reports say that Uber drivers in Washington D.C. are trying to make ends meet after latest fare cuts, Gavin Escolar, a Filipino driving for Uber, makes $252,000 annually. How did he do it?

From the Philippines, Gavin migrated to San Francisco to start a jewelry company and  later became an Uber driver to have enough money for his needs.

 

At first, he was just mentioning his jewelry business to his passengers. But instead of providing a business card, Gavin thought of showing the collection to his passengers. He then turned his car into a showroom, positioning his jewelry collections inside his car.

 

In a span of one year, this resourceful Filipino was able to create wonderful  jewelry designs for his passengers, averaging $18,000 in transactions every month. Gavin is earning $3,000 from driving Uber each month. That’s $252,000, Gavin’s combined income in 2014. He used this overwhelming income to expand his business.  He bought three more cars and hired six new drivers.

 

Amidst success, Gavin still drives eight hours every day to update his drivers where to pick up customers, which hours to drive and when big events are happening.  As he claims “The best generals are always with their soldiers.”

 

Just so you know: Uber is a mobile app where passengers can request for a taxi, private car or rideshare from their mobile phone in minutes. This app is useable in different cities around the world.
