Many Filipinos long for greener pastures, so they try so hard to work in America. But did you know that there are countries which offer even better opportunities than the US? Check out this list:
WHY: This well-developed country located at the center of Europe received a perfect score in a survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

In Demand Jobs: Software developers, mechanical engineers, doctors, therapists, and qualified technical workers.
Bonus: German beers and German boys.
WHY: In the same survey, Australia ranked among the top 10. Aside from the many jobs available, it is one of the countries with the highest-paying minimum wage. Also, its population is extremely diverse, so racism might not be a factor.
In Demand Jobs: Accountants, building technicians, childcare services, construction workers, engineers, and IT specialists.
Bonus: They’ve got beautiful beaches!
3) New Zealand
