Both Employers and Workers Succeeding Together
And we don't say that just to brag. But really, outsourcing is a transformative experience for both employers and workers. We have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs who have been able to change their businesses, and their personal lives, with the freedom they create for themselves by leveraging outsourcing.
Here are just a few success stories from some of the entrepreneurs we've had the pleasure of working with:
Dear John and Dan,
I wanted to let you know how incredible my Virtual Assistant is that I found through sviju.com. I had been using other freelancer sites, spending a lot of time and money trying to find new people, with hit-and-miss results. After learning about your site from Chalene Johnson, I knew this would be the place to get quality help.
Arlo, my Virtual Assistant for the past 3 months that I found through you, takes the cake. He is all I could want in an assistant, and more, and in a price range I can afford as someone who is very new in my business. His En glish is impeccable, capturing the nuance and style of language needed to take creative control with repurposing my content into multiple social media platforms. He is versatile, prompt, and incredibly eager to learn and take on new tasks. I'm so thankful that even as a new entrepreneur with a day-job, I can afford to free up my time in key areas to focus on other things in my business. Plus, the work he does in social media is usually much better than I could do!
“Love the work you're doing at sviju.com. I've had amazing success with building my virtual team.”
“I posted two jobs for hiring 3 VA’s and got 285 applications in the last 24 hours.”
“I’ve hired assistants, social media marketers, project managers, full-stack developers, graphic designers, web designers, front-end developers, motion graphics…a little bit of everything.”
“I was able to hire two VAs who are currently with me. They really did revolutionize the game and made managing my business easier.”
“...this really is the number one website for finding virtual employees and it’s very simple to use. It’s just an absolute game changer.”
“...the bottom line is that sviju.com is by far the number one place to find the best of the best virtual assistants in the world. There is nothing else like it and it just keeps getting better and better every year.”
“I currently have 3 AMAZING VAs that I found on onlinejobs. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Just like any job, there are good and some that are not so good candidates. It's process but once you find the right one, your working life will never be the same..”
“sviju.com is the most legit website in the world for hiring Filipino workers and VAs.”
“I’ve found that on sviju.com and having a virtual assistant has really helped me to...free up my life. I’m able to focus fully on my day job.”
“The virtual assistants I hire through sviju.com have just been the best I found anywhere. They are highly experienced. They are highly trained. I don’t have to do much training to onboard them at all.”
...Now I have an agency of 15+ VAs all from sviju.com.
“As far as hiring goes, once you find that one really smart, motivated, trustworthy VA, it will make your whole business so much easier.”
“If you just go out and hire people who are good at what they do and they free you up to actually run your business, it's the best move in the world.”
“Once you start getting into the mindset of, ‘oh, someone else can do this,’ you realize how much of your business you don’t need to be doing yourself. You can free up so you can really focus on strategy and business growth as opposed to day to day operations and administration.”
“I found that I can screen individual faster and more accurately with IQ & Disc profiling. And most of the candidates are better educated contrast with locals here..”
“Hi John, thank you very much for creating this awesome plattform. I am running a web development agency in Germany and my fellow pinoys helped me a lot in growing this company and providing good quality service to our customers. As I am half Pinoy and half German and also speak Tagalog almost fluently, I had it really easy connecting to my employees, some are working already 5 years for me. I think you really make an impact to a lot of lives over there. One of my employees told me, that prior to finding work via sviju.com, he and his family were not eating regularly, now they can afford health care and schooling for their kids. Just wanted to thank you and keep on going with your great work.”
“sviju.com changed my life years ago. When I started my agency, I was working my 60-80 hour work weeks. I watched a webinar pointing me to sviju.com and I successfully hired my first Virtual Assistant (VA). His name was Mario and he saved me 10-15 hours of work PER WEEK. And the cost? Only $340 per month. That brought to light many new possibilities with my company and we have used OnlineJobs to recruit many positions that are still working for us today 5+ years later.”
CEO / CO-OWNER, SeoWerkz.com
“I don't hire...anywhere else except in the Philippines.”
“When it comes to outsourcing to the Philippines, John is one of the top authorities in the field. His knowledge, experience, and views made a huge impact on my business, free time, and the fundamental ways I look at outsourcing. Thank you, John!”
“[Outsourcing’s] helped me maintain a full-time job for now and still get a lot of stuff done that I couldn't get done all by myself”.
“Dear Mr. Jonas, My name is Milo Amundsen, and I am your biggest fan. I am 17 and have watched all your Youtube content on outsourcing and have read most of your articles. This summer, I am graduating high school and plan to pursue digital marketing agency your literature taught me to create. Your content has also changed my life in a trajectory not just surrounding business but around spirituality.”
I love John Jonas and his program to help find Filipino VAs to work with.
“[I'm sure you've heard this a lot of times by now but I did everything you've told me to do and guess what.......it worked! I found my Filipino worker and he is wonderful! The job gets done and I don't have to worry about it. I honestly don't know if he works the full 8 hours a day and I don't care. The results show and he has helped us write more business”.
“The book and training has all been unbelievably helpful. There is no doubt the sum of it will help me turn my second job into an actual business sooner than later. Thank you for putting all this together John”.
Clayton Marks Jr.
“Brenda hired her first three VAs with a different online company and didn't have a good experience. When she was ready to expand her team, her VAs introduced her to sviju.com. In Brenda's words,“It exploded from there. I fell in love with it.”
“Thanks for the help, John. I find that everything you are saying is true. I am happy to say that I am very happy with, Steph. She's got the basic skills I was looking for and best of all she is eager to learn and not afraid to ask for help...sviju.com works, and your support is right on target!”
“Hi John! Your service, sviju.com, has allowed us to grow much more cost-effectively, and improve service to our customers, support out USA staff, and to positively impact the lives of the Filipino staff. And…working with the Filipino staff has caused me to be more grateful of the benefits and opportunities I have taken for granted living in the USA. Thank you for this.”
“John, I am writing you to inform you that the best decision I ever made was to use your service and find the most talented person i have ever worked with.”
“I just watched your videos for recruiting a VA. We have a company in the UK and just hired our first worker from Philippines. I just wanted to say that I found your videos helpful, interesting and pleasant to watch. I have no doubt that the information you provided will make a big difference for us. So thanks a lot for this, I appreciate the alternative to Upwork and all the creativity you have put into this.”
“Hey John, I just want to say Thank you for the content you create, I read all of your emails, and I have been using sviju.com for almost a year now. I love reading about the information you provide, it helps me treat my Filipino OFS even better since I understand more and more about their culture etc.. I am now referring all my other friends to stop wasting their time and get onto your website to do the hiring here... Keep up the good work. I appreciate you”
Rafal Z Widejko
“Hi John, I wanted to take a moment to share my appreciation on all the cultural and current events that you share with us. I am glad I'm able to email my OFS to wish them a nice holiday or to check in about weather.”
“... Just a word of encouragement! My VA (Full time student) is EXCEPTIONAL! She works about 7 hours per week for me. She never misses a task, is kind, and is way better at the things she does than I ever was before I hired her... My job has gotten easier, and I am accomplishing WAY more with her help. Actually, at this point, I am not sure how I would be able to run my business without someone like her. ”
John, Thank you for creating and successfully running sviju.com. I hired a new VA a few weeks ago and she is awesome. She already took some tasks off my plate.

Your service has been GREAT for hundreds of my agents. I've been following you for almost 10 years now. Thanks so much.
“If you’re at all ever going to hire a virtual assistant, definitely [use] sviju.com. That’s just the go-to resource for people that are actually going to be on board, on your team, long-term.”
“Use sviju.com. A business mentor recommended it to me i’m so grateful for that recommendation and it’s the advice I’d give to any entrepreneur and I have! I’ve given the advice to several of my friends.”
“We owe a lot to our Filipino staff, and in turn to sviju.com for connecting us. Thank you John Jonas and team!”

“sviju.com is hands down the best place to get Filipino workers for your business and you’re gonna get really good rates and they’re actually really hard workers and pretty trustworthy.”
“…bringing on a full-time virtual assistant can be a massive boost in your productivity and it really truly has for my wife and I.”
“If you’re in the boat where you know that you have a job that you could, off, that you could pass off, definitely go check out sviju.com.”
“Thanks sviju.com ! You have helped us grow, supported us while we cried… and more importantly, helped us laugh and smile.”
“My goal [is] to even further eliminate myself from [my] business. I found another gem last week on this really fantastic site...called sviju.com.”
“I wanted to say thank you for an awesome website that connects me with great independent contractors, and also for providing such excellent information. I would never have known about traditions like the 13th month, or that the culture of the Fiipino community is one of extreme shyness, or that they will address me as Ma'am and to just leave it alone, or how to properly communicate. Thanks for the tips about the W8ben form and everything else on the site that lets me know about how to properly take care of anyone I hire. It is obvious you care about taking care of your workers.”
“When you [hire] that first VA, your world changes in so many positive ways.”
“Because of you, I have a team of workers in the Philippines all because of this website. You’ve made my business better and I can’t thank you enough!”
“I have found that once you get their trust...they will go above and beyond to work some crazy hours to get projects done for you.”

“...I hired my first employee through your site and I am thrilled with the process and result so far. I already recommended hiring through sviju.com to two other business owner friends.”
President | Service Care Industries, Inc.
“This is Jon! I'm a business owner in Singapore, and I've been using sviju.com to find fantastic colleagues to work with. Within the last 5 months, I've successfully recruited 6 x OFS, and ever since all of them have been GREAAAAT to work with. On top of that, I find myself having more time for my own family and friends because my colleagues (we call each other Fambam) are all dependable and responsible individuals who seek to deliver the best in their job even without my presence. Essentially, there is NOTHING for me to complain about! With that, I'm extremely grateful to have found your website, which hugely benefited my own business! A very big thank you to you and your team! ”
Jonathan Ong Wei Jie
“Hi John. Just wanted to say how grateful I am for you. Creating sviju.com has helped me speed up building my business. I have hired 2 VA's and they are fantastic. They do things that would've taken me years to learn. I appreciate them so much as I do you for creating such a wonderful platform. Thank you.”
“John, It was SO easy! The only holdup would be if someone hadn't taken your training or read the book (I've done both). I'm VERY CONFIDENT that I can do this well, thanks to your training”.
“I’ve known about VAs for so long, but never knew how to do it right, how to build a team, how to have a happy team and how to create that. That was the difference when I found sviju.com.”
“Love your product as it has changed my life for sure. My OFS is a complete rockstar and wildly exceeded my expectations”.
President | Sament Properties LLC
“I recently took your One VA Away course, and I used sviju.com to hire. It's going really well so far! I'm up to five VA's who are crushing their work and seem really happy in their roles. I think that can largely be attributed to 1.) generally following your instructions/advice surrounding the hiring process, and 2.) trying to go out of my way to make this a good and valuable experience for my employees (which is one of the many things you preached that I took to heart).”
Founder | PrepHQ
“Thank you John for this experience. I have just employed my first VA and I will make it work. Cheers!”

Founder and Firestarter | Business Credit Lab
“One year ago I signed up with sviju.com and in less than 24 hours I found the one OFS I was needing, her name is Joana. During the past 12 months I have hired her sister and one of Joana's friends. Because of their expert help, my little eBay business has experienced meteoric growth. But the most rewarding part of this experience is to see how Joana's courage and persistence has not only changed her life, but the lives of many
“...in return for providing a stable work environment, my OFS team provides me unwavering loyalty, high quality output, and breathtaking throughput. I have to remind them that they do not need to work so hard...this is a low stress job. But they tell me they work hard because they love their jobs. Every night working with them is emotional for me. I love my team”.
“Can't say enough about your process to hire Filipinos. It has been invaluable. Followed your advice and I think she feels valued by me and a real part of our team. I love my OFS!”
“I am indeed impressed with sviju.com. Keep up the good work! I will be back to hire”.
“Thanks! I am so happy with the person I got through you to help me. He's amazing!”
“You have an amazing service. I have found several very qualified candidates”.
“This has been a great experience. A great company to work with. I tried a few and no other turned out as many candidates and final hires. You have a great company!”
Founder | getNewToothbrush
“Been employing Filipino devs for the last 6 years, way, way better than U.K. devs, they work harder, amazing people and an amazing culture. They’re just awesome people. My head dev used his excess money to put both his cousins through college. Do what this guy tells he’s bang on the money!”
“I am a believer in you, John Jonas and in sviju.com. I'm up to three VAs now.I paid for your training and it was totally worth it. In fact, with my first hire, I did everything that you said to do and my web designer is on point. With my second hire, I decided I was gonna take a short cut, because I really liked what this guy was saying. So I did exactly what you said not to do. And long story short, I wound up having to fire this guy and start over. He wound costing me money, time, and he got me so behind with my clients. Just like what you said it would happen.
So, I followed you steps for my third hire, and I got a rockstar content creator. With the cost of living so low in the Philippines, I love how I'm able to significantly bless 2 familes over there (the fourth VA I hired is married to my second one) while they are able to bless me and my family. You've given us a unique special opportunity to achieve financial freedom in two whole separate countries! Kudos and keep doing what you're doing. You've got us all out here WINNING! God bless you and everything you're doing”.
Co Founder | Q&T Digital Marketing Agency
“John, I wanted to thank you for catapulting the Filipino Professional VA community to the international stage. I have been your customer for over 2 years now. I hire all my VAs and for my clients using sviju.com. Thanks again, John. God bless you more”.
CEO | Gabtech Global LLC
"John taught me the ropes and I've been outsourcing to the Philippines successfully for 6 years now."
“I plan on continuing to build my business with the help of my Filipino team. I source good employees through my hiring process...and will continue to refine how I do business in the Philippines.”
Jesse L. Razo
“Anything you can do, they can do! sviju.com is a great value for your money.”
“So far my VA has shown a talent for book spinning, writing, and brilliant cover design. I originally hired her for her researching abilities and in that too she excels. In addition to all of this though, she has a degree in marketing and I have also consulted and strategized with this too.”
“Touching video. Im a long ago customer of John and his replace myself course since back in 2009,and Ive been using Filipinos ever since. Thanks for mailing me the candy and photo of your family. It was a nice touch”
“I hired CoachBem Mejares Tumang throuh this and HE IS A KILLER EMPLOYEE! Absolutely hardworking, gets the job done on time and has even made suggestions to my work that has caused me to increase sales. THANKS BENJAMIN! And thanks sviju.com!”
“The quality and consistency I receive from my employees makes me very happy with my decision to use sviju.com and I will use the service again as we continue to grow! This was the best decision I could have made for my business and my personal life.”
“I now use 4 staff from sviju.com. It’s revolutionised my small company - feel free to ask me questions!”
“After the first interview I knew I found our dream employee and set-up a second interview! Her goals were right in alignment with our company and we hired her immediately.”
“In order for you to get closer to your goal of freedom, you have to let go and delegate. You cannot be doing every little step inside of your business.”
“Use sviju.com to find Filipino Virtual assistants who know how to use Oberlo, Dropified, Shopify and Aliexpress. They can handle your customer support or fulfillment or even product research so you don't have to worry about it.”
Beast of Ecom
The site was great because it offered all kinds of educational information on how to understand cultural differences and get the right person.
Ryan D. James
“I’ve got several VAs that work with me and if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be able to run my businesses or scale them. So I very much appreciate the work that they do.”
“I’m now doing three times as much at a tenth of the time.”
“The strength of your system depends on the strength of your hire.”
And what I love is they're always willing to learn... they're always saying, "I want to learn, I want to grow, I want to help you help you build your business, and I'm willing to take time to learn new things" . Inside the website there's tons of training, they talk to you about how to post your job, what to expect, how to communicate, they really go into detail about all the things that the site offers...

I have used it over and over through the years, and I have hired quite a few VA’s for many different jobs.
“I hired my OFS 6 weeks ago, and it was indeed life-changing! Not so much from the monetary standpoint but from the feeling that I'm working on and not in my business”.
“Someday I will have to tell you the story of one of my employees in the Philippines. She started working at a peso net, unbeknownst to me, and now has a nice computer with dual monitors, a desk, provides for her siblings school expenses, and her own personal expenses. She has good dental and medical. I love the Filipino workers that work for me”.

“I purchased One VA Away back in March and didn’t watch it until about 2 weeks ago when I was just drowning balancing life and trying to grow a few businesses.
So I finally watched the videos, posted a job and had 286 applications. I was completely overwhelmed. But I kept watching your videos and used your guidance to go through each one. Eliminating first based on budget, then just started asking questions to see which ones would write back in a timely manner.
Then, there was one that just stood out. Not because of her experience, but because of how she communicated via email, how responsive she was and more importantly how she used bullet points and answered EVERY question! I hired her and we have been working together for only 3 business days so far, but she is absolutely a perfect fit! I am so thankful for you, your process and sviju.com to have given me the structure and platform to find the most amazing person to add to my team!
So kudos to you for a job well done. Your experience shows and thank you for sharing it!”

Co-Founder/CEO | Carli.ai
“Just hired my second VA today. Love this service!”
“Hi John, Just to let you know that I have my first full time VA hire and it is life changing. I'm still learning the finer points of working together but they are transforming my ability to get things done. Thank you for setting up sviju.com and congratulations to your daughter on her first win!!!”
“I’ve hired 4 absolutely wonderful bookkeepers through your website. I truly want to thank you for your website, your service and most importantly all the emails you write so often that train me to better hire, manage and run a remote Filippino team!!”
“I love our General Ecommerce OFS who we hired from your site. She’s made my life infinitely better! ...I also have a copywriter I hired from sviju.com. He’s really good. To be honest I never thought I could find someone in the Philippines with strong enough English to not only write in English properly but be creative in describing our products. Thanks for what you do. It’s made a huge difference in our business. We’ll definitely be hiring more people from sviju.com in the near future as we continue to expand.”
Jerry Watterson III
Vice President | Sunn Battery Co.
“I cannot tell you how much I appreciate these emails you send out John. Since I have been reading them, I have developed such great relationships with 2 my VA's and soon to hire a third. So grateful that you created this!”
“Back for the third time! Love the VA's I've found from your site and I tell everyone to come to sviju.com”
“Thanks for sharing a lot of valuable info, advice & experience on your site, Youtube and emails. I hired my first VA and we will begin work tomorrow. My gut tells me that outsourcing this way is gonna work well for me.”
"So sviju.com is actually my secret weapon. I've been using them for years to get people in the Philippines. My VA's, my workers, they are amazing!"
“I love reading your emails! Thank you for creating sviju.com I have a great experience with the training and the VAs.”
Real Estate Expert
“I wanted to let you know that I just hired my first VA from your site (which someone in my mastermind told me about) using the method you outlined in your "One-VA Away" challenge. I appreciate the class so much -- it put me in the right headspace to do a lot of clever things to both sell my job and start a positive relationship with a future employee from the get-go. I'm so excited about Ana (perfect score on her online IQ test, amazing English, Magna cum Laude at her law school). She starts in 2 weeks, and I find I wake up with new tasks to add to the list of things to train her on. I can't wait!”
Partner, Brumfield Labs
“I can't believe that I can actually afford to hire a full time person, and she does so much more than I am even capable of doing. Projects I've wanted to do for years, but just couldn't take on, I'm implementing now. Several at once, in fact, and she's just an implementation machine! And most of this she's never done before!”
“I'm kinda all-in to your programs: A student of your OneVAAway, Premium subscriber to OnlineJobs, refer people to your sites all the time. I've hired three Filipino workers. Love them. Now I must replace one because her family needs her to run their business. She wrote me the nicest resignation letter I've ever seen and promises to continue to work with me for the next month AND help transition the new person once I hire. So I'll be recruiting again starting in the next couple of days.”
Publisher and Executive Director
“Hi John I hired a girl from sviju.com after purchasing your short video course. Your email newsletters have been very helpful too. Today I sent the 13th month payment to my worker and you were so right about how important it is to them! ...Thanks again for all the legitimately helpful info you provide. I've recommended your site & newsletter to several people also.”
“Your site and videos have changed my working life, I think it's a trend more and more people will follow.”
“Hi John, We are a US domestic ground freight broker and use Filipino VAs for back office accounting, daily tracking updates and a team that sources trucks for us. A total of 4 Filipino workers now! When we first started with sviju.com we were looking for one person. Everyone we talked to wanted to do Amazon or Shopify type work. We've spent lots of time training and teaching our business but it's been worth every second. Now they know how we want it done and come with no preconceived notions.”
“I love it as I add tasks to Trello during the day and I wake up the next morning and the work is done. It makes me look like a superstar that I can turn work around quickly. And he's happy he can work when it suits him.”
“Hey John! I'm a HUGE RAVING fan of sviju.com. So much so that I ended up hiring 53 Philippino's for my appraisal company! Thanks again for creating an awesome platform to do business overseas. It truly is the reason my company exploded.”
“LEGIT!. My OFS is fabulous. ;) Yesterday, in fact, I was like "how am I going to get all this done..." I shot her a quick note to ask for help. She said yes! I woke up this morning and it's done. ;) WOOT.”
Owner, Founder ITEOM, LLC
“Hey John, just a brief message to say that your manual on how to hire a OFS is worth its weight in gold, and I have found an AMAZING OFS on my first try and couldn't be happier. In fact i will soon be coming for seconds and third... and so on. I finally can say that I KNOW how to scale up my business. Anyone who asks me about a VA, I send to your website. Simply brilliant! So thank you and keep up the good/exceptional work!”
Kilmarnon Consulting Ltd.
“Hi John, Just wanted to let you know that I now have 1 full time and 2 part time workers! My life is much more organized and much more being achieved. I want to add a fourth person part time to take over another part of my business.”
“Your service is awesome by the way. This whole process has been honestly eye-opening in general, in a good way. As a small business owner/currently self-employed entrepreneur; I had assumed my first available position would appeal to basically no one.”
“John & Team, I appreciate the regular emails you send - both the practical and the cultural. I love my OFS employees (all 5 of them!) and learning more about their culture is just as valuable to me as your advice on how to find/keep/treat them. Thank you for all you do!”
President, Websites For Anything
“I have recently hired my first VA using your oneVAaway challenge and so far it's going great. I plan on expanding soon and hiring an additional VA and really liked your idea of putting a QA person in charge.”
Manager, Elm Enterprise LLC
“We have 10 people on our team in the Philippines now. OnlineJobs has provided a great service to enable the hiring and help build success. Your service has done much to enable my company to grow and keep growing. Thank you!”
“...I love that I feel like my business has an even stronger reason for being now. I have a family in the Philippines it is supporting. I love that feeling of purpose. I appreciate your help so much. Without your services I would never have found her in a million years.”
Lisa Van Gemert
“Hi John, I wanted to message you and thank you for your OnlineJobs platform. We have been building a team and really appreciate your input and stories surrounding your experiences.”
“Looking forward to seeing the training! I've been using sviju.com for a couple of years now, to say the least, it's transformed my business! Not only have I hired quality people off the platform in technical finance roles, we now have 6 full time employees. I invested in the hiring processes offered by onlinejob.ph and couldn't be happier! Thank you John and the amazing team in PH!”
“First of all, I love what you’re doing. Me and a few of my buddies have all bought your course. Love your book and podcast. It’s definitely made a big impact in my life and business having a full time editor in the Philippines. My wife loves the time it’s given me back!!!”
“I have two VAs and absolutely adore them! This article is so spot on! My VAs have flourished so much this past year and my company has grown so much because I have them to do the backend items! Thank you for the service you provide to businesses and to the people of the Philippines! I’m feel truly blessed!”
CEO, A To Z Building Blocks
“I’ve upgraded and hired a VA, very excited about it. The resources on your site are really excellent and have been very helpful during the hiring process as well as helping me determine a fair rate+benefits. Thanks you for providing this and I hope my VA and I will make a successful longterm team.”
“We just made our first hire from your website for a social media manager. I followed your hiring template and we think we have a really great person for the job. Thanks for the advice. I don't think we would have gotten such a great person if we weren't patient and took the time to follow your steps.”
“I love this platform. I used to be a freelancer here, but when I migrated to the US, this is my go to platform for all my admin needs!”
Jayson M. Aquino
“...I use software developers to help create screens / interfaces, configure the back end of the system, work on the Database, and just generally do anything needed to keep the system running and make it better. We also do some consulting and project work, and my people are so talented that I feel perfectly comfortable billing their time out. For these projects, they can bill out their monthly salary in a day or two. Hiring these developers has been the single largest driving factor allowing me to significantly grow my business and revenue over the last 18 months.”
“I have had a virtual assistant from sviju.com since last October. She’s been fantastic! Her work is excellent and on time.”
“Thanks to your platform I have been able to build a business where I hire Filipino employees and sub-contract the to insurance agents in the united states. I started last September and thought I would end up with 8 ¡V 10 by the end of my first year. I am sitting at 9 months and now have 26 Filipinos working for me with one managing all of my OFS employees...”
“Hi John, We’ve been using online jobs now for the past few years... Thanks for the service, and your time it’s truly made a difference to our small business.”
“Hi John, I appreciate the many ideas you share in these bulletins. My VA has been with me two months and we still meet on many afternoons via Zoom. These have been helpful since we do a lot of screen shares for training, sharing ideas, etc. We also have a full team meeting each Monday late afternoon. These excite my VA. She loves being part of a multinational team and has commented on this. I cannot imagine our team without our VA and I let her know it. She quicly became our data go-to person. She's everything we hoped for and much more!”
“I am looking to hire my second Filipino after having such success on my first I hired from your website. Thanks John!”
“I found an awesome team member who is still with me after almost 9 months. She has been an incredible blessing to me. Looking to grow again. Thank!”

“sviju.com has been a great way for us to get to know how to hire since they have many qualified applicants and the entire process is so well managed. John Jonas is engaging yet seems very approachable... We are hiring more Filipino Professionals soon”
CEO / Chief Engineer, Ramirez Engineering
“John... We found what appears to be a great VA. She wants to work US time zone, but I have told her to stay on her time zone. Going pretty well so far; using lots of loom videos. She is more capable than I give her credit for. Thank you!”
“Hey John, Hope all is well and you and the OLJPH Team are wonderful. We are enjoying using the site and your emails are insightful. I can’t/don’t read them all, but when I do they are good copy. We have hired 5 VA’s – 3 have worked out well and 2 so far have not been great (we had another also lined up but she cancelled the start the night before the start). We are recutiing 1 more at the moment...”
“You guys are awesome! Only recommendation would be to make it easier for business owners to find all of the different programs you have (trainings, etc.) that are spread across different domain names. Loving your program!”
“John, You have a wonderful platform. I was able to hire 4 great people from this site over the course of 2 years. I keep coming back here. I also recommend your site to everyone both Virtual Assistants and business owners. Cheers!”
“Hi guys, Just wanted to say I'm thrilled with my experience on your platform. John...You provide a wonderful service here! Thank you so much!”
“Just wanted to say I so appreciate your emails. They make me think of things I wouldn’t ever consider. We love our Filipino team members, they’re just as integral to our team as our us-based staff. Just wanted to express my thanks.”
Managing Director, westsidenannies.com
“I am so happy that I met you and your site. It has changed the way I do business. I was already so overworked and overwhelmed that I wasn't sure if I could find enough time to train them. I signed up for your most expensive 6 month deal. I wanted someone to discuss my options with to save time. The discussions were very helpful. One woman I had interviewed the first time, seemed perfect except for the fact that she was working for someone else part time. I wanted someone dedicated to me only. She also told me that under no circumstances would she quit her other job. After continuing to interview it became apparent that she was the one I wanted to hire. She turned out to be amazing. It's going on a year, she is still with me and did recently quit the other job. Thanks!”
“Hey John, I hired my first VA yesterday! She is super smart and has relevant experience. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the encouragement, I've always been a solopreneur due to trust issues...but you convinced me Phillipinos are good people.”
“Hello John and team, Thank you for the emails of useful information. I also love my OFS and would be lost without her. It's the best thing I ever did. Thank you for providing such a wonderful service, helping Filipinos and employers.”
“Your site has changed my world – thank you! In 2021 we went via an outsourcing agent – who charged us three times what we are paying now, made us supply equipment and told us we were being too fussy when reviewing resumes! Thanks to you we have two very happy accountants working for us since July 2022 and have three more team members coming on board this month. I have adopted a lot of your suggestions – they have been so helpful in helping us understand the culture so much more! Thank you!”
“Hi John! First, love your podcast and blogs! I am at the point where I now have about 22 OFA’s.”
Well, our story began in November 2015, and Mariah actually contacted me first, and just at the right time when I was looking for a job. She saw my profile and she said she was impressed by my English. I replied to her message, and she gave me a great hourly rate offer, so I said yes!
She was actually my first legit employer, with the screenshots, timer, and everything. I learned a lot of things from doing the tasks Mariah asked me to do, and I'm really thankful for having met her. She runs a fitness business, so I get to learn a lot about exercise doing the things she asks me to do. I learn so much that whenever I see my friends I often tell them, "oh, you know my boss Mariah says that you should do this to be more fit," or "you shouldn't do this." It's amazing.
Through sviju.com I not only found a way to better myself, but I also found a way to augment my income. Which is just amazing.
How do you establish a good relationship with your employer? Well, language choice is really important. You really have to nitpick what to say and what not to say. I learned this the hard way when an employer called me out for being rude and disrespectful. So, with Mariah, I was really careful with my> words. It's just so difficult to convey tone in text, so my advice for jobseekers is that you should know the line between boss and friend. Besides that, you also need to submit outputs on time, and always ask how you can improve your work.
“Because I am working home based, life is different. I get to bathe my son, play with him, sing some Nursery Rhymes, read books, bring him to school, and even teach him good manners.
“sviju.com helped me create the freedom and the extra flexibility I needed in order to pursue my dreams. And continue business, without sacrificing my education.”
“I gained more time for myself, my family, and especially for my kid. I also have time for a partner who I can rely on everyday, and have time for extra curricular activities.”
“I guarantee you guys that this is a legit website, I found my writing job here. However, you need perseverance in applying. It took me almost a year to find the perfect employer. It was worth it.”
“Just posted my resume online, someone called me thru sviju.com, and now I am on my 8th month as a web designer, working at home, Thanks you very much sviju.com!!!”
“Thank you sviju.com. After a month of searching for a homebased work, I finally found the perfect employer. We really get along with each other, thinking that this is my first VA job. Keep up the good work sviju.com! ”
"Try and try until you succeed", the saying which turned out my best friend, my strength and the reason why I was hired. Way back December 2013, I created my sviju.com account. At that time, I was hesitant to pursue on searching jobs because of the fact that I don't have any working experience yet. Also, I don't have the courage to speak to foreign people especially on the application process, the interview (the video call). I saw my proof ID increased and had lot of views from the Employers, I eventually searched for the jobs that I thought would be a good fit for me as an Information Technology graduate. I got some replies but due to the lack of stable internet connection and the resources, I wasn't able to respond to them immediately. One time, I supposed to be interviewed using Skype video call but wasn't able to attend to it because of pocket wifi's slow data connection. I know on that moment I screwed the chance of getting the job. So what I did, I just keep on sending application letters to other Employers... been rejected, wasn't entertained well and been "seen zoned" even on the scenario that they're the one who reached out to me first. Then last year 2015 (2 years after), an Employer saw my profile and scheduled me for an interview. I was glad that the interview went well and it was just a chat interview. He then hired me on the spot and I started working to them after 3 days. It was such a nice feeling that you once dreamed of a life changing things and now you got it! It's just right in the palm of your hand. I'm blessed to be part of my boss' team and got the chance to share my blessings to my family. Now, I am 7 months and counting working with my boss as VA.
I shared to my friends what Onlinejobs did to my life and how grateful I am.. recently, I got 2 friends who were hired through your site, sviju.com. Like me, they keep on sending their applications until they got the slots. To everyone, I know it's not easy to apply for a job but I know if everyone have the courage and perseverance to get a job we might downgrade the probability or the percentage of unemployment here in the Philippines. Keep pursuing your dreams! Keep sending applications until the right Employer comes along. :)
Kudos to sviju.com! You're indeed a great help to all Filipino workers. A thank you wouldn't be enough but still THANK YOU for making our dreams turn to reality. Keep the jobs coming guys!

“When I was working on sviju.com, on my online work, I was also going to school and my employer was aware of it and it's okay with her.”
“When you are working at home, there are so many advantages. You don't have to talk to a lot of people, like in my case, are all available on online chat. And the best part is there is no traffic!”
“Thank you sviju.com. Iv'e been working since 2014, your site is such a big help (financially) specially in coping up needs for my two kids. I found the best employer here both part-time and full time.”
Melanie Alcesto Achas
“Best place! It took time and effort but i'm proud to say after 65 resumes sent and 4 interviews...I am HIRED for a job I truly love and it is geared toward my 4 year degree i have. I LOVE sviju.com Best of the best and LEGIT!!!”
Cassandra Grace Gorre
“Thank you sviju.com. I found my employer here. I get to do my work and as the same time, take care of my kid!”
I would like to thank you for the wonderful full time online job I have now. I applied last Oct. 5, 2015 on a job posting in your site seeking Media Production Assistant for Las Vegas Media Company. Luckily I passed the test task and since November 2015 up to March 2016 I was a regular part time member of our team. I worked as a full time Senior Loan Officer in a Lending Company before and decided to resign so that I can focus on the trainings I need. I am now a full-time Assistant to the Producers/ VA for a Las Vegas Media Company since April 1, 2016 and is now training for a Team Leader position. My bosses were very kind and they always want the best for me to grow personally and professionally. I have more time now with my family for a having a flexible schedule. This is truly an answered prayer for me.
I will always be grateful to sviju.com because all of these started when I subscribed to your site. Thank you and more power!
All the best!

“Working from home, I can say it is less stress. Holidays are YOURS, you can decide when to work. This is really a big difference. I got to pick up and bring my kids to school, I get to play with my kids, unlike in a BPO, you definitely can't do that.
“The beauty of an online job is you have no commute, and your wages are high since the ones paying you are from another country. You will also have exposure since your projects will be seen all over the world.”
“For almost 3 years of working with foreign employers, even now, I do believe sviju.com creates more opportunities to the jobless Filipinos.. Only if you’re in this world, you should be a hardworker and accurate on your task. That’s why we need to be competent.”

“I was an unfortunate lad who had bad luck from finishing school. But that was years ago. Right now, with a nice job at my back thanks to OJ, I am just waiting for an approval of my PAG-IBIG house loan. Please pray for me sviju.com”
“Still with my Canadian Employer who found me through sviju.com. The pay is good because no 3rd party deducts my salary, and best of all, I am communicating directly with my client. I can finally balance motherhood and career, not to mention financial security. Thank you sviju.com for saving me!”
