It’s normal for every fresh graduate to be ambitious. With their lives ahead of them, they want to succeed in every field they’ll practice. In the Philippines, most fresh graduates feel more pressured to get a higher paying job because they have to support their families – from their parents to their siblings. But the competition is high and there are not enough jobs for every young graduate in the country. Experts would often advise these fresh graduates to not only excel in their academics but they must also develop life skills that can contribute in improving their skills inside and outside of work.

While some experts admit that the school one goes to matters. 

But let’s go back to the topic: high-paying jobs. While some companies offer basic minimum wage to most fresh graduates, there are industries that pay more than P20,000 each moth. According to Philippines, the information technology (IT) sector pays an average monthly wage of P22,567. This is based on the the data the company gathered on its website from users around October to December 2015. Working in the IT industry includes the jobs – software development, computer technician and web administration.
