Are you looking for a job opportunity in Japan? Do you want to experience living and working in the land of the rising sun?
Good news! More than 100,000 jobs in Japan will be offered soon to foreign workers including Filipinos.
Filipino officials under the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and Japanese officials under Japan’s Ministry of Health and Labor are currently drafting the MOU or Memorandum of Agreement for the Technical Intern Training Program.
Filipino skilled and semi-skilled workers under the Technical Intern Training Program will be given priority once the MOU has already been signed and Japan starts hiring.
Successful applicants will be deployed to different private institutions in Japan.
Filipino workers in other countries like in South Korea, who may have been affected by the ongoing tensions with North Korea, may also apply once these job openings in Japan become available.
In a report by JP Soriano of GMA News’ 24 Oras, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said, “DOLE, OWWA, and POEA are working together to prepare for any eventual repatriation for our OFWs which will include reintegration program.”
As of this writing, there are no job orders yet, but you may check the POEA website regularly for updates. We will also post updates here once Japan job hiring starts.
