Filipinos are known for versatility in carrying out different kinds of works. This is the reason why Filipinos are most-sought workers even in foreign lands not only for professional jobs, but also for blue-collar jobs.
If you want to work abroad it makes sense to have NC II added in your profile. This will give you higher chance of finding a job overseas with good pay. Enrolling for TESDA vocational courses can be the best option to earn NC II.
There are many courses offered by TESDA that will help you learn skills in construction, tourism, health and wellness industries, agri-fisheries, and information and communications technology.
