Command of the english language in the Philippines is amazing.
They watch american movies and TV shows. They listen to american music and radio.
They know english better than they think they know english.
For example, I got an email from my good friend Robert Murgatroyd the other day. He forwarded an email that one of his Filipino employees had sent him.
Not everyone you find will have such amazing english like this, but there are plenty of Filipinos who have perfect english.
You can find people to hire at OnlineJobs.ph. Be sure to look at the advanced search to search for multiple skills at once.
I've had many emails just like this one from my amazing Filipino employee, who has been with me for nine months. I can't imagine running my business without him – he's my extra brain!
there is a virus on the website : http://www.jetsetlife.tv/

Thanks for the great post
A few comments:
1. We DO use expertrating, but only on the people who show some initiative to us. The people who have taken the skills tests at expertrating can be found in the tested workers section on this page.
2. I know their descriptions are horrible. That's why we have them rate themselves in their skills. Often it's still only slightly better than reading the resumes they write on other sites, but it's still better.
We've tried quite a few things to get candidates to write better descriptions of their skills…it's not easy.
it's your call. but do you know that if you do, it's going to be pro-rated?
PS: Don't think I am racially biased against Filipinos, because I am not. Great people, like the vast majority of people in the world. I just feel that either the work ethic isn't there with a lot of people on this site or I just had REALLLLLLLLYYYYYYY bad luck 😉
I am Filipino and I am saddened when I read about your experienced. I know a lot of writer, programmer, seo etc. They are expert in their fields. Just a piece of advise. Filipinos shops for employers and always look for better and higher salary.
The best tips to maintain a VA is to impress them with HIGH SALARY. Without it you will keep looking for new writer.
very nice post, i certainly love this website, keep on it
