JobStreet said recently that the job market was back to the prepandemic level as more and more companies were gradually opening opportunities for job seekers.

The firm said there were currently more than 75,000 jobs available on their platform, with over 53,000 of these from Luzon and the remaining more than 15,000 posts for the Visayas and Mindanao regions.

“We’re expecting more job opportunities coming in the next few months, especially now that things are going back to normal and going more digital,” said Philip Gioca, country manager of JobStreet Philippines.

“Likewise, competition among talents is tougher, so job seekers are encouraged to learn new skills and tools, rehearse for interviews and put their best foot forward,” he added.

A recent Jobstreet survey also showed that optimism for the Philippines’ job market had increased, with improved employer sentiments for the first six months of 2023.


A survey of 438 local companies in its “2022-2023 Outlook -Hiring, Compensation and Benefits Report” showed that 66 percent are optimistic about the local job market for the first half of the year, higher than the 41 percent recorded for the last six months of 2022.
