Re-posting: RemoteStaff

RemoteStaff is a company that employs homebased workers. I think the main office is in Australia that's why most of their clients are Australians, but they do have clients from US and other countries as well. I would think that the home based jobs are mostly outsourcing jobs.

I have heard a lot of things about the company, mostly positive. The company is legit. I think they have set standards for their applicants. From what I observed through their Facebook fan page, even though most of their people telecommute, they have frequent announcements like birthdays and such. They also welcome new hires to their company.

They usually announce their home based jobs on their site or their fanpage. They also have officebased jobs, I guess this for an internal position.

For more information on the online jobs they offer, go to their website or visit their fan page.


I have re-posted this blog because RemoteStaff is continuously looking for home based workers. I highly recommend this site.

To Job Applicants

Applicants pass through me before they reach the managers or owners of various online English schools. One of the things that irk me is that when you tell applicants to send their resume, they attach their resumes to a BLANK email, no cover letter/email, no note, not even a "hi".

Back in the 80's and 90's, when people applied for work and were required to send in their resumes, it was automatic that they should include a cover letter. Call me old school but if you are applying for an online job, even if you've already chatted with the supervisor or manager, even if the job is just home based or you're freelancing, you still have to include a cover letter/email. It's really disappointing to see these so-called "teachers" do this. 

Don't schools teach etiquette anymore?

Remember: You only have one chance to make a good first impression.
