Top 10 highest paying jobs in the Philippines revealed
The Department of Labor and Employment or DOLE bares the highest paying jobs in the Philippines, and one of the ‘trending’ jobs like nursing is not one of them. Thus, the agency advises students to go for in-demand and high-paying courses.
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz on Thursday named the occupations that returns the highest monthly wage rates in the Philippines over the last five years and immediately called on high school students, whether they intend to pursue technical or vocational or college education, to go for courses that the labor market demands.
Baldoz cited the latest study of the Bureau of Local Employment (BLE), which showed top ten of the high-paying jobs in the Philippines. These are those occupations in aviation, banking and finance, business process outsourcing, creative industries, cyber services, manufacturing, and mining.
The top 10 highest paying jobs in the Philippines include:
|Aircraft pilot/ navigator/ flight engineer||P57,789|
|Mining engineer/ metallurgical engineer||P55,638|
|Systems analyst/ systems designer||P42,112|
|Production supervisor/ general foreman||P36,133|
|Call center representative/ customer service associate||P35,424|
Three months from now, hundreds of thousands of high school graduates are expected to enroll in college in the upcoming academic year.
“I also advice them to refrain from choosing courses based on what’s in vogue or fashionable, or, to use the popular social lingo of the youth, what’s “trending” and popular. Just because a neighbor’s son or daughter will take up this or that course does not mean you should follow suit,” Baldoz said.
“Graduating high school students, and the seniors following them should realize this early the significance of making wise and excellent career decisions. They themselves can help resolve the jobs and skills mismatch problem by pursuing courses and skills that would easily fit them into jobs or entrepreneurship opportunities in the labor market,” Baldoz explained.
“Some of these courses may be less popular and less considered but pay the highest salaries,” Baldoz noted.[Source]
