How long you've been working away from home? Do you prefer to work as an OFW for the rest of your life? Try to think of this and imagine where you will be in the next few years.
The main reason why OFWs' work so hard and take all the risk in a foreign land is for the hope of improving the lives of their families back home. I know for sure as an OFW we are all committed to reach that dreams and that legacy will always be remembered.
How will you start changing your life from OFW to a person you've dreamt of? Well, I should say that from the moment you step out the airport to where you were heading that’s the time you start dreaming of what, who or where you will be in the future. You have to imagine that in 2, 3, 4 or 10 years from now you gonna have your own dream house, a business, a beach lot or whatever your wishes are. OFW life is not always certain and working overseas is not always forever though there's always an exception the immigrants.
Today, the Philippine government helps OFW in their quest to a new life and attaining financial freedom. Lectures; business seminars, forums and other financial integration education were being offered.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Philippine Overseas and Employment Agency (POEA) provided entrepreneurship as the best option for returning OFWs'. With this the two government agencies established the implementing arm The National Reintegration Center for OFW. TESDA on the other hand has implemented their integration program. Training and other skills development and enhancement were on scheduled in different areas in the Philippines. If you don’t want entrepreneurship you could enhance your skills and knowledge by having a continuing education especially in the technical side. Through this, you will be as competitive as always and be a good employable candidate.
There are a lot of opportunities around try navigate the internet as a good tool for searching potential business and other stuff.
A pro-active OFW has to always look for his future and not just wait for the monthly salary. As I have written in my previous article Multitasking OFW and a pro-active OFW there's no other way your good fortune will slip away!
