3 Basic Things You Need to Get Started
PC/Laptop – at least an i3 for starters and administrative tasks like data entry or research. Graphic design needs at least i5. Getting the job done via tablets and mobile phones are not enough.
Internet Connection – If DSL is available, get it. Mobile WiFi can be used in some cases like light research and data entry but for voice related jobs or activities, a more stable connection is needed to be invested in. We recommend at least 3MBPS, DSL connection.
Headset and Webcam – Some clients prefer to interview workers before giving them a job either thru Skype or Google hangouts. Some prefers to just chat or email, but it is preferable to have these ready in case you need it. (FYI not everyone will need video feed on while on an interview as well)
