With the government’s antipathy towards Nigeria as an OFW destination, skilled workers and engineers who may have prospects for oil and gas and construction, mining sectors should seek alternative African countries to work.
The next big thing to Nigeria is Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo. Oil, Mining and Construction sectors are in a boom in these two countries, of which plenty of Filipinos can be accommodated..
Angola pays higher than Nigeria and offer better job benefits, including family status and vacation rotation.
DRC, the irony of it all, is still a very risky and unstable country, but no BAN here. DRC is also on a comeback trail and the Chinese are leading the pack on investors intent on bleeding that nation dry with its natural resources. Filipinos can also apply there.
In Google, type “career+angola” and “career+drc”. You can change the country name. Be careful with scam jobs. Do not apply if the website is not a company website. If it is just a jobsite, do not bother to check or apply. Those are mostly scams.
Here are some Angola jobs i found for BP and Chevron.
DO NOT BELIEVE IF JOB OFFERS LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, ESPECIALLY IF IT OFFERS UNUSUALLY HIGH SALARY FOR YOUR JOB SKILL.
IF THE ALLEGED OFFERING COMPANY ASKS YOU TO MAKE ADVANCE PAYMENT IN EXCHANGE FOR SUPPOSED VISA AND PROCESSING, IT IS DEFINITELY A SCAM. DO NOT TAKE IT.
OFWs, go out to the world and work…..
