As we all know, Filipinos are one of the few races that are known to be great workers. This is why a lot of countries especially in the Southeast Asian region look to our country whenever they need foreign workers. Other than the fact that we Filipinos have good work ethics, we also have good behavior when it comes to interacting with other people.
There have been lots of news pertaining to other countries and governments looking for OFWs. Just last year, Israel was looking for over 5,000 workers in their hotel industry. Moreover, Japan was and might probably be still looking for 17,000 jobs in different industries. By looking at these events, it is clear that foreign countries tend to look at OFWs as their bread and butter in finding foreign workers.

No worries because Germany is looking for at least 400 workers, mainly, Filipino nurses according to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
