If you’re looking to work abroad, several things may up your chances, including your education, your foreign language proficiency, and of course, the hiring rates of the country you’re planning to work in.

According to a survey of 43 countries by Manpower Group featured in Business Insider, certain countries in Asia and Eastern Europe have a lot of openings for both locals and expats, so if you’re planning to fly out for greener pastures, here are a few places you may want to consider:


1. Taiwan

24% increase in hiring intentions

Asia is definitely where it’s at. Taiwan has increased their hiring percentage due to its fast-growing tech and finance fields. In fact, some Taiwanese companies have been directly hiring Filipinos through government-to-government employment schemes, which won’t seem to slow down any time soon.

2. Japan

23% increase in hiring intentions

The sleepless cities of Japan such as Tokyo are hubs of technology and of a unique and “vibrant corporate culture” that easily draw in investors. Many Filipinos will find good opportunities in this Asian neighbor, as according to a recent Philstar report, Japan and the Philippines have signed a social security agreement that gives Pinoys and Pinays working in Japan “access to benefits for sickness, maternity, paternity, occupational diseases, invalidity and old age as well as survivor’s pentions.” However, the POEA has also temporarily stopped the recruitment of caregivers to the said country until the 2016 Technical Intern Training Act of Japan has fully taken effect. So if you’re a caregiver, best approach POEA or a legit employment agency to confirm the agreement’s status before heading out.

3. Slovenia

22% increase in hiring intentions

While Britain’s exit from the European Union caused West Europe to slow down hiring, the countries in the East have grown more confident in expanding businesses. Slovenia is one of them.  Full of picturesque towns and castles, it may not be your top-of-mind when it comes to employment, but it’s definitely worth exploring!

5. Hungary

17% increase in hiring intentions

Did you know that Hungary is one of the countries in Europe with the lowest taxes and cost of living? The good news is that Hungary has once again opened an embassy in the Philippines, and both countries have just signed several economic and trade agreements, which would hopefully open more opportunities for Filipinos.
