5 Affordable Courses For In-Demand Jobs In The Philippines

The Philippines has the highest number of unemployed people in Southeast Asia. The International Labor Organization (ILO) states that the Philippines has an unemployment rate of 7.3%—behind Indonesia (6%) and Brunei (3.7%). That 7.3% is equal to almost 3 million jobless Filipinos!

The main problem? Job mismatch. This is when a person lacks specific skills and experiences for a job. 

Despite that, we’ve got good news for you! There are millions of promising job vacancies available to Filipinos. You don’t even have to be a college graduate to pursue them! Skilled workers are in demand in the current labor market. That’s why a world of rewarding opportunities await tech-voc graduates.
