Millions of people in developing nations are seeking opportunities to live, work or study abroad in order to improve their prospects.
Even in fast growing economies, such as China, India and The Philippines, demand for work or study programmes outstrips supply.
The Philippines has long had an organised market for overseas job placements through its POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration) regulated agencies.
This week in Manila, Cebu and Davao the POEA will join employers and manpower agencies exhibiting their job openings at the massive ‘Career Guide Job Fair’ starting 26-27 October at SM Megatrade Hall (Next to Megalmall).
Among the exhibitor is the overseas job board WorkAbroad.ph, which claims links to over 41,000 job openings abroad in countries such as Australia, Singapore, Canada, New Zealand and the Gulf and Middle East.
Work Abroad (Philippines) is an overseas job portal for Filipino jobseekers. It is also a Philippine manpower pooling site for the top recruitment agencies in the Philippines accredited by Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
