JobStreet.com recently released their Annual Salary Report for 2015.  The Top 10 High-Paying Jobs in the Philippines today!

Unlike their 2014 survey which is industry-based and focused only on entry-level employees, the new report listed the top 10 specializations with #GreatSalary for Junior Executives, Supervisors and Managerial positions.

The JobStreet.com team headed by its Country Manager Philip Gioca together with Marketing Manager Roselyn Ombao and Candidate Marketing Specialist Czarina Cucueco briefed us yesterday in a forum held at the Bubba Gump Restaurant Makati about the new process and the surprising results of the study.

  1. A lot of operations managers or project managers working in BPO’s earn as much as 40 to 50 thousand pesos. I wonder why they’re not on the list. There are also lot of managerial jobs in the Philippines you forgot to include.
