Little do aspiring Filipinos know, Canada is very tough when it comes to hiring. It is not an issue that there are numerous jobs there, but our education is not regarded to be at par with theirs. Therefore, most Filipinos do not meet their expectations. There have been a lot of professional kababayans who are working in substandard, underemployed situation in Canada. Please reconsider your options when making decisions to leave our country.
I have been in North America for several years now. Life is so tough, too. My greatest misgiving is that America has taken something that I feel is so important for me to survive: the ability to smile.
