Thousands of employment await Filipinos in the American territory of Guam, according to the Department of Labor (DOLE).

Filipinos wishing for a better life overseas may want to consider working in Guam. Armi Evangel Peña, the Labor Officer in Los Angeles, indicated that interested Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) will have opportunities in the coming years.

Guam plans to hire around 11,500 Filipinos across a variety of industries, according to Peña. They have already validated 3,000 job orders, which are contingent on the recruitment agency and the US Embassy’s acceptance of US visas.

Peña, who chairs the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Los Angeles, California, revealed that she spoke with Guam’s labor chief David Bersolia about the job situation. During their conversations, Guam officials stated that they want to hire Filipinos to fill their vacancies and will not hire anybody else.

The majority of the hiring would take place in 2023, when the island territory would employ 6,500 people although some work orders have already been issued on the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency’s official website (POEA).

Construction-related vocations are among the most in-demand in Guam. There are also accountants and journalists on the list. The following are some of the open positions:

  • Welders and electricians
  • Refrigeration and HVAC [heating, ventilation, and air conditioning] mechanics
  • Mechanics of construction equipment, plumbers, and pipefitters
  • Heavy machinery operators or operating engineers
  • Carpenters, reinforcing metal workers, masons, and structural steel workers are all examples of structural steel workers.
  • Cooks and chefs
  • Engineers of all kinds

Those who want to apply in Guam should keep studying and engage in skills training, particularly in the construction business, according to the DOLE executive. Aside from obtaining a US visa, obtaining licenses and possessing the necessary abilities can assist them in obtaining employment.

Make sure to check the official POEA website for the job opening updates.
