Searching a job in any areas within your country is very difficult. Unless, you are a graduate and belongs to the top 5 of your class.

One thing, job seekers should think many times what would be the sacrifices they are going to make before they reach that particular level of employment.
Overseas Filipino Workers should think the following before they start seeking a job overseas:
The reason why you want to work away, it’s because of your family.
Are you willing to leave your loveone’s? Can you fight the homesickness while you are away from them?
Your family is your inspiration. Whatever hardship might happen in your work, you should put it in your mind, you did it because you love your family and you want them to have a better and bright future. Homesickness is normal and no one are excuse. Homesick might attack within 3 months after arrival. Bear in mind, if others can do, why you can?
Being an applicant, expect that you need to spend money. For the preparation of your documents such as NBI, Passport, and many others. Transportation allowances from the beginning of your work adventure until you are scheduled for flight. There are hundreds of expenses you need to consider.
Can you afford to finance? Is there somebody who can help you to shoulder the expenses that might incurred during that period? If positive response, just continue.
You are not anymore in your homeland. You are there for work. If you cannot avoid the vices you normally did in your country, better to minimize it. Vices can lead you to poverty or even dangerous to your life. SAVE FOR YOUR FUTURE!
The most important thing you need to know. Follow all the laws in the country you are working with. Countries have different laws. You need to follow them all, to avoid any inconvenience during your stay. Violating there rules and laws is dangerous. It can even lead you to death.
I hope that job seekers can get a lessons what I enumerated above. If you will apply all it, you will be successful in your working career.
