Popular recruitment website Jobstreet.com recently conducted a poll among its clients whether they would hire K12 graduates. Out of the 503 employers, only 120 said they would hire them.
This is exacerbated by the fact that these K12 newly-grads are facing stiff competition from college graduates also entering the workforce for the first time.
It’s quite ironic because one of the main reasons the K12 program was implemented was to prepare and allow high school graduates to enter the workforce upon graduation (18 years old).
So what’s a young, K12 fresh-grad got to do?
Most might opt to continue education until they get a college degree while some might grab the first job they can get their hands on regardless of pay or degree of difficulty.
It’s a sad reality. However, there’s some good news. Thanks to the Internet, a growing number of Filipinos are able to work remotely or exclusively from home, through online jobs.
Sure, it’s not for everyone. But for some, it just might be the “break” they are looking for. And with the right skills and mindset, they have a good chance of earning even more than their counterparts.
