Ren failed to finish her hotel and restaurant management course in college when she decided to focus on taking care of her child. Now, she enrolled a culinary course in TESDA for baking and pastry making.

“For me to enhance my skills, syempre para hindi man lang dito sa Pilipinas magamit ang skills ko. Sa ibang bansa din,” says Ren Angely Reyes.

Baking and pastry making are few of the many in-demand jobs abroad and you can also use it to build your own business.

“Napupuntasila mostly sa Dubai, Singapore. Meron din kami sabarko.,” says Deejae A. Juanta, Center For Barista & Career Ambassador TESDA.

Ren could benefit from this latest job offer of Canada as they are in need of 2,000 skilled and semi-skilled workers.

“There is already an agreement na it will be a government-to-government track at pine-prepare nap o at ‘pagna-finalize na ‘yung ating bilateral labor agreement, then, we will be ready to start the deployment,” says POEA administrator Bernard Olalia.

Slovenia is also in need of 2,000 to 5,000 skilled and semi-skilled workers.

“The salaries are definitely higher than that of the Middles East. In Saudi Arabia, it is around $400. In Slovenia, we are looking probably at around P50,000 to P75,000 or about $1,000 as long as we can come up with a bilateral agreement and we both agree with the provisions, says Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

POEA advises those Filipino workers, both skilled and semi-skilled, to start preparing for the requirements such as passport and training certifications while the agreement is being prepared.

To gain higher chances of qualifying for the job, it is also important to have job experience in the Philippines. Wait for further announcements at the POEA website.
