Jobs for Filipinos in South Korea in 2015

Share it Please
Korea is one of the most sought after destination of Filipinos to work. Aside from the promising salary, Korea is also famous in the Philippines because of Kpop and the Korean drama. The image of Korea shown in the media entices Filipinos to go to Korea and work. However, one must know that there is only very limited job market for foreigners in Korea. You have to compete with the Koreans who were trained and educated to obtain skills necessary and intended for Korean corporation. Learning the language alone is very challenging and yes, difficult. Language is one of the most important qualifications here in Korea, unless otherwise you'll teach English, the knowledge in Korean language is a must to get a job.

Hopeless as it may sounds. Korea is not completely burning bridges for foreigners who want to work in the country. There are several opportunities especially for Filipinos for the year 2015 and the upcoming years. This is a sign that Korea is becoming open to the idea of letting Filipinos to penetrate in their job market. As of now, there are limited opportunities but if  you find yourself fit in the position, the next step would be to market yourself to Korean companies so you could pack your back and go to Korea and work.

As of this year, there are total of almost 50,000 Filipinos in Korea and there are a lot of undocumented stayers that are not included in that number. Now, let's look at the possible jobs that Filipinos can acquire in Korea for the year 2015.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: As you can see, this blogpost has been flooded with questions. I could no longer answer questions here. If you have questions, CLICK HERE to see if it has been answered in the FAQ. If not, just leave your question in the comment box of that page.

1. Factory Worker

UPDATE: CLICK THIS LINK FOR THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF POEA FOR KLT 13

Based on the statistics, most Filipinos are here in Korea to work as a Factory worker or in manufacturing industry. Through the program called Exam Permit System or EPS, foreigners including Filipinos can apply a job in the manufacturing industry. To apply as a factory worker, you must be between 18 and 38 years old, you should have no records of imprisonment for a heinous crime, no record of deportation or departure orders from Korea, must not be restricted from departure from Philippines, must be physically and mentally fit, at least a high school graduate and with a minimum work experience of 1 year.

How to apply as a Factory Worker in Korea?

You MUST ONLY apply at POEA or Philippine Overseas Employment Administration. You should not apply to any agency or any person for this. This is a direct agreement between Korea and Philippines so all transaction must be done right within POEA. If somebody or an agency is recruiting you for this, please double check. Wait for an announcement from POEA website for the Korean Language Test. There is no specific date for this, POEA announces this at any random dates within the year. Usually, they conduct KLT in the Philippines 2 to 3 times a year. You better watch out for the announcement, keep checking POEA website so you could register yourself.

Once you passed the Korean Language Test, POEA will further instruct you to provide requirements for the selection process. The total cost for job seekers from taking the language exam to your departure would be around 30, 000 pesos to 40, 000 pesos. The salary also depends on the number of hours you work in the company. For a minimum wage, salary may range from 35,000 pesos to 40,000 pesos. If you work overtime and you work hard enough, you may get up to 70,000 pesos salary as a factory worker.

You can read full information on How to Apply as Factory Worker in Korea HERE.

2. Engineers

If you have the right skill and up for the competition, you may land on an engineering job here in Korea. There are a lot of good Korean engineers, but Korea is also open to Filipino engineers who are very exemplary in their field of expertise. In fact, there are several Filipino engineers here in Korea. According to the statistics, out of more than 50,000 Filipinos in Korea (including illegal stayers), there are 787 E-7 Visa holders or professionals working here and that includes the Filipino Engineers. It's very small compared to the more than 20,000 factory workers but still, it's a good sign that Filipino engineers are welcome to work in Korea, albeit tough and restricted. Needless to say that it needs a very remarkable skill to work as an engineer and Korea can still accept more workers in this field for the year 2015.

3. Arts and Performances

Filipino talents are being admired by Koreans. Singers, theatre actors and other skills in terms of arts and performances are very much welcome here in Korea. Korea is open for Filipino entertainers since then and it continues to welcome more and more entertainers as time goes by. So the year 2015 could be a good year for those who are into arts and performances. Usually, you can apply for this through agencies in the Philippines. Just always make sure that the agency is legal and credited by the POEA.

Other possible jobs for Filipinos in Korea for the year 2015 are Professors, Researchers, and household workers, but there could be a slim chance for these jobs for Filipinos as Korea prefers other foreign workers or their own native Koreans to take over the job. There are several Filipinos working in these fields but you can count them with your fingers, so this might not be a job market for Filipinos.

Korea is a beautiful country and it is possible to come here and work. You just have to improve yourself and update your skills to keep up with the competition. In the year 2015, Korea is planning to hire more Filipinos especially in the field of manufacturing because they like the handiwork of Filipinos and their attitude when it comes to work. Hoping for a bright future for Korea and for the Filipinos who will venture to find a job in the country.

  3. Hello and good day Sir..... =^_^=
    I'm wondering if you have list or you know an agencies here in the Philippines where I can go?
    I want to apply as a singer or a dancer..... Actually me and my 2 friends have plans in applying as a singer on a hotel in Korea. They told me that we are going directly to Korean embassy for screening. Then suddenly they just backed out. But I'm still willing to pursue my application...Is there anything you can suggest? Thank you Sir... I'm also willing to apply for factory worker position.... I just don't know what to do and where to go.... God bless Sir...

    1. Hi Arwina, you better check with POEA if there are agencies offering jobs for Filipinos to work as singer or dancer in Korea. There is no any other safe way than to check it out with them,

      As per your desire to work as factory worker, girls have slim chance for that. Korea prefers boys to work in factory because of the nature of job.

    3. hello... depende siguro sa mapupuntahan mong company.. the process of hiring as a factory worker here is that once you passed the language test, you will be enlisted..your photo and your info will then be sent to HRD KOrea for selection In short, one of the impression na babasehan sa pagselect is your photo. Mas makakabuti siguro na you should dress and look like a man..tapos pg nandito ka na, saka mo oobserbahan kung ok lang ba sa company nyo that you will look like a girl..depende din siguro sa environment..I hope napanood mo yong link na naishare ko..

    1. Usually 3 years ang contract plus 1 year and 10 months kung gusto ka ng sajangnim mo. in total, 4 years and 10 months. As for the korean language, it depends on your area. Try to ask the TESDA office in your area if they offer Korean language class. If wala, you may need to enroll in private classes which costs more.

Pero gaya nga ng sabi mo, ok ka na ngayon and you are totally fit, ang kelangan mo lang gawin ay kumuha ng pulmonary clearance sa kung sino man ang nagcheck sayo. You can show that kung sakaling questionin ang xray mo pagdating dito.

    5. Hello Rose,

      yong list na binigay is final na po yon. I don't want to break bad news but there's no other way na to be included. Just wait for the next survey.

      Here are my two theories:

      1. During the survey, you should have filled up your passport. Maybe the survey was not acknowledge kasi walang passport.

      2. In the case of your cousin, I suspect, they have limits for the number of participants. Baka napasali sya dun sa limit,

      The best way for you to clarify this matter is to call POEA at this:

      POEA Hotlines:
      722.11.44 / 722.11.55

      try to ask lang maam.

    2. @Saranghae Korea, hi thanks for the info but how will I know when is the next KLT13? Aside from the poea website? Is there any way. Thanks!

      Delete
    3. hi xian, the only way to know is through POEA website. If you are active in fb, find a way to join groups related to filipino in korea kasi minsan may mga nagpopost din dun ng info. Search also a forum called Sulyapinoy... marami ka din malalaman dun

  53. Hi po, pwede bang makapag-work ang disabled person sa Korea...wala bang discrimination dun? Kasi po PWD ako and I use crutches but I can manage to work by my self and be independent . Graduate po ako ng BS.CpE and I'm a passer po ng TESDA NCII sa Computer Hardware Servicing at Consumer Electronics Servicing. Ano po ang age limit nila? Thank you po.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hello..age limit po is 38... Ang work po dito sa korea is 3D, that means dirty, dangerous and demeaning. While some jobs can be done by differently abled individuals, ang magiging problema nyo dyan is ang medical, kasi the doctor will check you physically and they will have to conclude if fit to work or not. Alam mo naman pag physical exam lahat talga chinicheck and I doubt it kung papayagan ka ng doctor to work in a 3d type of jobs sa condition mo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hi sir, tourist visa is not allowed to work here in Korea. You need to go out of Korea first and change your visa to a working visa.

      If you are willing to work in a factory, this is the only way and the only legal process to get an E9 visa, check this link:

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hi sir. what do you mean na kukunin? sponsorship po ba? kasi po yong KLT po, hindi po yan pwedeng may kukuha na set up, random selection po yong nandyan and any employer can get any person na nasa roster ng KLT. Hindi po sya pwedeng makuha ng tita nyo through KLT.

      If your tita has the power to sponsor, then I guess sponsorship is the best way at isa pa, over age the rin po ang misis nyo. Hindi pa natin alam kung kelan KLT13 baka 39 na sya nun

  57. hi! i'm a fresh grad and i just wanna ask if is it possible to work in Korea as a preschool/elementary teacher by sponsorship even if you don't have ant teaching experience?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Maine, I think you should have asked kung may mag iisponsor ba sa isang fresh elementary teacher graduate? Kung meron po kau nahanap na school to sponsor you, then it's ok. You need to get an E2 visa for that.

      However, there's really discrimination at work here in korea. Usually, korea hires English teachers, if you are not an english teacher, you may have a slim chance to get a teaching job here in Korea. And one of their requirements for an English teacher is that he/she should be a native English speaker.

  58. And Sir gaano katagal po ang pagprocess if nakapagregister na at nakasama sa batch ng for examination how long it will take na mag hintay ng exam at processing ng papers? kasi po talagang gusto ko pong makapagwork sa Korea but then kung kailangan na mastay ako sa pinas para sa pagprocess lahat uuwi po ako pero I want to make sure po sana before na umuwi. Pwede naman po siguro akong mag-emergency na umuwi if ever talaga na need para makapagtake ng exam then balik nalang po ako dito sa paghihintay ng result if pass magreresign na po ako dito then uwi na po ako dyan para maghintay.May bumabagsak din po ba sa exam paano po if failed? panibagong apply na naman po ba at nagbibigay pa sila ng 2nd chance?Yung po bang nakita kong cost ng processing na aabot sa 35 to 40k lahat na po ba yun kasama na ticket?Marami pong salamat pasensya na po madami po lang akong gsutong malaman.

    1. Hi Anne, thanks for your pang Maalala Mo kaya question.. hehe..

      Yes, you are right. If you go here as tourist visa and look for work, that's illegal. Although may mga factories na pianpatulan ang mga tourist visa applicants, there's no way na mapapalitan ang visa nyo into E9 Visa, you will stay tourist and illegal as long as you're working here in Korea. Sa panahon ngayon, sobrang higpit na ng korea sa mga TNT dahil dumadami na rin ang bilang. Tama ang desisyon mo to go through proper and legal channel.

      Sa ngayon, kakatapos lang ng registration ng KLT 12, mag eexam na sila sa April. So you need to wait for KLT 13. WHEN? We don't know. Wala kasing exact date sa pag oopen ng registration.Kung kelan mangangailan ang Korea, saka sila mag paparegister. Baka next year or next next year.

      Passing the KLT does not guarantee employment. Kelangan mo lang mapasa ang test para mapasali ka sa roster, kung walang kompanya ang pipili sayo, wala rin, nga nga pa rin. Pero usually naman may pipili at pipili talaga sayo. Gaano katagal? months, years, or even days. In short, depende kung kelan ka mapipili. Ang importante, nakalista ang pangalan mo dun sa pagpipilian.

      If you fail the test, you can take it again. Sorry kung hindi ko na maisa isa masagot lahat ng tanong mo dahil I think nandito sa post na ito ang kasagutan sa ibang tanong mo. Pakibasa lang po it:

    Replies
    1. it depends on what kind of job. Halimbawa pumunta ka dito na naka E9 Visa ka, ibig sabhn for factory worker, halimbawa one month na lang natitira sa Visa mo, I don't think may kukuha pa sayo na ibang factory dahil patapos na rin ang Visa mo, unless otherwise hindi mo pa nagagamit ang 1 year and 10 months extension ng E9 Visa, posible yon. pero kung other kind of jobs like for professionals, kelangan mo muna umuwi ng Pinas, ipaterminate ang contract mo and change it to E7 visa.
