MANILA - Online jobs portal Jobstreet.com said people who already have a work-from-home setup have an advantage in today’s career marketplace.

Jobstreet country manager Philip Gioca said many companies are looking to hire people who are ready to work from home. 

“Majority of the companies are now giving options for working from home and that’s an advantage for candidates,” Gioca said.

He added that despite a 30 percent decline in postings on Jobstreet, the job market will rebound in the coming months with BPOs, healthcare, IT, education and customer service leading the charge. 

Overseas jobs meanwhile are not likely to rebound soon as countries prioritize hiring their own citizens, and with travel restrictions and border controls still in place.
