Why do Filipinos go and work abroad?
Working qualifications in the Philippines are so unrealistic causing Filipinos to go abroad instead and become an overseas Filipino worker because cant qualify in the PhilippinesThere are so many jobs in the Philippines but still plenty of Filipinos are jobless. Why is this happening? Well, one of the reasons is there is a mismatch on skills and qualifications of people not having the skills required for employment. Some establishments require these sort of qualifications:
Must be 18- 25 years old.
With pleasing personality.
At least 5’2 in height
With good communication skills
No wonder people end up jobless, because Filipinos belonging to this category and who qualify for those requirements. Some may qualify on height limit but not the pleasing personality, should it be considered as bias? Maybe if the government implements and reinforces a no age limit rule, no height limit and most of all the appearance. There will be no more jobless Filipinos , aside from those who are just lazy moving their self or what they as “Juan Tamad”.
Many Filipino citizens thrive hard to finish college but still end up jobless after graduation. There are institutions and schools that offer vocational courses and training which are very useful in applying for a job but maybe jobs overseas. Overseas jobs in Middle East accept more applicants with vocational courses and with hands on training. That’s why most Filipinos see their future and looking for a greener pasture abroad instead of living in the Philippines in which only those lucky ones survived in paced of job hunting. Maybe it’s time for a change and the government should do something about it, my suggestions would be increasing the wages and salary of every Filipino worker and gaining quick access to benefits that been being paid for. Let there be no jobless Filipinos by changing basic qualifications. Government should step up and do something with this system, all Filipinos will work abroad.
