Career Jumpstart Program
An exciting new opportunity for this year’s fresh graduates
The Career Jumpstart Program is a new initiative by The Virtual Hub that gives talented fresh college graduates who are willing and able to work at night in Cebu City the chance to build their skillsets in the Digital Marketing industry as Virtual Assistant apprentices, in preparation for full-time careers as night shift V.A.s of the company.
It is open to all graduates of 2019 who are ready to take the first step in their careers with one of the fastest-growing companies in Cebu.
These benefits apply to the successful participants of the Career Jumpstart Program.
Employment Contract from Day One
It’s not “just training.” It is, for all intents and purposes, a job, but for the first eight weeks, you will be undergoing rigorous training so you can be at the top of your game!
When you return to work in January, you will start to enjoy the benefits of a full salary, which will be based upon how well you did during the first eight weeks!
Fixed Weekends Off. Forever.
We will never ask you to work on a weekend. Ever.
Fixed Schedules. Period.
While you are going through the training program, you will follow our training schedule of 6pm – 2am, Mondays through Fridays.
In January, you will be transitioned to the Night Shift, which generally begins at 9pm and ends at 6am*.
Two Weeks Off This Holiday Season
Enjoy two weeks off# at the end of your training before you come in as a full-time Virtual Assistant in January.
As an employee, your statutory benefits% (SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-ibig) take effect on Day One.

Full-Time Employee Benefits
If you graduate from training in January, these additional benefits are what you can look forward to:
Competitive Salary Packages
Our basic salary packages start at Php 16,500 and go up based on your performance in the training. These basic rates are still subject to Night Differential for hours worked between 10pm PHT and 6am PHT.
HMO and Other Company-mandated benefits upon graduation
Get the same benefits as all our other Virtual Assistants when you graduate from the training program. That means you get healthcare, dental, performance-based incentives†, leave credits, and more!
All Virtual Assistant accounts are essentially Non-Voice. That means you won’t be taking calls throughout your shift, except for when clients need to go on meetings with you!
Five Major Holidays Off
The Virtual Hub is closed on the following days of the year: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day (December 26), and New Year’s Day. If any of these days fall on a weekday, you will NOT be called to come to work AND you will be paid a full day’s wages.
Ongoing Training and Support
If there’s anything that the initial eight-week training program has not tackled, we will provide you with training and support to help you become successful in your role.
A Collaborative and Supportive Working Environment
We thrive on working well with everyone around us. If you ever hit a dead end or feel like you need help, Team Leaders and your fellow VAs will help you out.
If no one in the office can help you, our Internal Helpdesk is there to lend a virtual helping hand.
A Stable, Long-Term Job
We don’t employ people on a per-project basis. This means you will have a job with us for as long as you like.
No one achieves success when they’re feeling burnt out. This is why our employees never work on weekends, and it’s also why we’re very particular with fixed schedules.
Register for Free Today
If you think this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, don’t wait one second longer. Spots are limited and we expect them to fill up quickly. Registrations have been extended, but we now only have slots for October 19. We will close registrations on Wednesday, October 16.
How to Register
Pick your testing date
Testing will be held on two Saturdays in October: October 12 and October 19. Slots for October 12 are now full, but we still have a few slots available for October 19.
It will be a full-day event (9am to 4pm) with briefings and Q&A sessions, so be sure you are free the entire day. There will be no retakes if you decide to leave in the middle of the tests.
The tests will be administered at our office in I1 Building, Cebu IT Park. They are designed to gauge your English communication skills, as well as your ability to follow instructions (sounds easy, right?).
Snacks and refreshments will be available, but feel free to bring your own if you have special dietary requirements.
Fill up the registration form
Give us your full name, your updated contact number, and your updated email address. We will use these details to contact you about your registration and about the tests, nothing more. We will not share your information with anyone else, we promise!
The registration form will also require you to state why we should shortlist you. This is your chance to introduce yourself and impress us — so go for it and don’t be shy!
Wait for us to contact you
Our Recruitment Team will go over all applications and shortlist the ones that we feel are at the top of the bunch. Keep your lines open and keep an eye on your email inbox!
