If you or one of your family members are looking for jobs overseas, there are great opportunities waiting in Germany and in Taiwan. Around 300 nurses and 100 factory workers are needed in these two countries, according to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Opportunities in Germany
According to POEA, 350 nurses with a minimum of two years experience in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), medical, general, surgery ward, operating room, and geriatric care are needed in Germany.
This is going to be a government-to-government recruitment, thus minimising the risks of getting into the hands of illegal recruiters. The aspiring applicant can go directly to POEA to apply. All the expenses, including the German Language Proficiency fee, will be shouldered by the employer.
According to POEA Deputy Administrator Jocelyn Sanchez:
Kapag sinabing government to government, POEA lang ang kanilang dapat apply-an. Mag-online registration. If they’re qualified, dadalhin nila ‘yung requirements dito sa ground floor, counter S and T.
Yung German language proficiency naman ay kapag napili na ng employer and iso-shoulder ito ng employer. Ang gagastusin lang kapag government to government, siyempre ‘yung mga documentation nila.
The starting salary in Germany is €1,900 or P112,000. This can reach up to €2,300 if you will take and pass the nursing exam in Germany.
More Opportunity in Taiwan
In Taiwan, more than 100 factory workers are needed by two large companies. This is going to be government-to-government recruitment as well. There are no difficult requirements. You just need to be a vocational or college graduate.
For interested applicants, you just need to submit your requirements to POEA. This is for immediate hiring and the interview schedule will be given immediately.
More and more opportunities are being opened for Filipinos because we are known as hard workers. If you pass and become an OFW, make sure to save for your family so you will not work overseas forever.
