Whats the point of enjoying life in the Philippines for 2 months a year and spending the other 10 months in some hell hole making money but being miserable?
Why not be happy in the Philippines all year long? The key is minimalism. If you want that smart phone, new car, fancy condo, and expensive booze...you will never have it. Just learn to live with less. Oh, and if the girls aren't satisfied with you having a regular apartment and normal clothes...then they're not quality girls anyways. Only gold diggers care if you have the latest smartphone/car/gold watch/top shelf booze/etc.

If you work hard and have a decent education/good profession, you can certainly afford a place to live, clean clothes, fresh food, and perhaps a normal car. What more do you need?


True.

Americans work underground in the Phils, and earn a living. One of the guys on LivingInCebuForums talked about hiring bricklayers. He paid the American worker more than twice as much as the Filipinos. They grumbled. He showed them how much more the American had done. He was paying by the brick.

These are the two site

http://ph.jobsdb.com/ph

http://www.jobstreet.com.ph/

You have to be in PH and apply personally to be successful, If you have 10+ years exp. You will get 60k as accent trainer or Team Lead or Product Manager above 80+ K pesos which is more than enough.

One of my friends got a job this way. You have to be in Manila which is the center and in 2-3 months you will get the job guaranteed. Most don't ask for visa for interview, if asked, you can tell you have a fiance in PH and getting married soon but would like work permit etc ...They will sponsor you.

There are over 1000+ companies from US and Canada in PH...you can also apply in Canada and come here ...

By the way this is for all guys from North America who are looking for job in Philippines....Its not 20k Its 60k plus for guys from America.


You mean 60k pesos per month, right?

Sounds like there could be "fringe" benefits.

OP, also check out the PhilFAQs website and newsletter. Owner is a fantastic guy who teally scours for ways guys can make it.

For example, a while back he was spoonfeeding the procedure to get a job with a US consulate or AID. Some things as mundane as organizing the motor pool. But American wages!

Yes, he's a good guy and his site is an excellent resource. But if you read him a lot you will see that his mantra is to think outside the box; that traditional "jobs" aren't the best way to go; online employment and filling small business needs are his emphasis. Bob Martin's site is also a great resource and he also helps guys with employment or business in the PI. But his focus is the same; don't try to get a "job", create some kind of business.

If a guy already has some kind of income or cash, supplementing it in PI should not be difficult. But if he comes with nothing and needs to make all his money there - well I wouldn't want to do that.
