Who would have thought that the number one spot in the Top 10 high paying jobs in the Philippines, as announced by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), would be an Art Director, earning 69,286 pesos per month?
According to the Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, the high paying jobs list can serve as a guide for graduating students in choosing which career they’ll likely pursue. She also mentioned that it would be better to choose a career that will lead to employment related to the current demand of jobs in the Philippines.

The list includes those from banking, aviation, BPOs, cyber services, mining and more. Some of these jobs need a bachelor’s degree, while others need to have only a high school diploma.
