100,000 Jobs for Filipinos to Work in Japan

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA announced that the job opportunities are for people who are looking for a job in Japan. Officer in Charge of POEA, Bernard Olaila, said that we can now deploy Filipinos to Japan who are professional, semi-skilled workers even including those who have experience in caregiving.

The chances of being getting a job in Japan is even higher as POEA claims that Filipinos are exempted to take the language proficiency exam in Nihonggo language prior to being employed in Japan. This was noted after Japan expressed their interest in hiring Filipino-workers for their job vacancies.

Additionally, POEA foresees this as an opportunity to encourage Filipinos who were affected by the disputes in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon.

POEA advises to keep an eye for job vacancy postings in their website as Japan had not released any job orders yet. And to be mindful of illegal recruiters as they may also take this as their own opportunity to scam or deceive you of the job vacancies.
