Kenneth Jay Ranis – eCommerce Manager and Marketing
I’m Kenneth Jay B. Ranis, a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering in AMA Computer College.
I’ve been working as OFW for 2 years in Riyadh Cables Group of Companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. My first job there was in HR for 2 months and then I was transferred to the planning department as they needed more staff. My job is more as a Data Entry Encoder and General Manager Secretary as women are not allowed to work in the office.
I am responsible for collecting daily production reports from operators with 24 hours working (2 Shifts). I then compute their output and transfer the data in excel file format to submit to my manager. I’m responsible in making Key Performance Indicator or (KPI) weekly, monthly and also yearly reports for our plant. As the days passed by, working in KSA, away from my love ones was not easy. I forgot to mention that I already had a daughter and I left her with her mum at the age of 2, to work abroad. Thankfully, technology makes it easy for us to communicate everyday through video calls. Every day I saw them – but that is not enough for me… so I returned to the Philippines to be with them, and got married. My wife and I knew that our decision was risky, but my motivation is I want to be with them and find a job that best fits for us.
My wife introduced me to home based work as a virtual assistant. For me to understand how it works, I enrolled in online classes that helped me to learn more. My first experience was not good. I was scammed by my client. However, it did not stop me to continue finding a job and luckily I’ve got many job offers. My job experience that I have attained as a virtual assistant now are:
• Social Strategic Marketing
• Amazon Product Research
• Data Encoder / Internet Research
I’m very glad and blessed that I know what home based virtual assistance is. Because of this new career path, I will not be away from my family again, just to suffice their needs. I feel more inspired every day with the knowledge that I can support them financially at the same time to help my wife in raising our child. Time is the vital gift that you can ever give to your love ones.
