Highest Paying Jobs for Fresh Graduates

You wanna know what the highest paid jobs in the Philippines are? Jobstreet.com, which is perhaps the number 1 jobs website in the country today, released five sets of infographics back in June 2013. This set of statistics may be a little old as things online tend to be, but it’s still a good indication of the stronger industries in the country today.

Jobstreet has access to the level of salary of every single job being uploaded in its database, these averages are reliable. They are a good indication of what you can expect from the market.

Take these numbers as one of your considerations in building your career. As I said in my book, Start-up, money should not be the primary goal of a worker, rather it is in offering services and making the world a better place.

    Okay,this is quite a good idea but I’d also comment that we have to consider the bracket these companies are placing. Some are putting the maximum amount in JS but can give lower base pays especially if the applicant is a fresh graduate. 🙂

    Just a thought from someone working!
