Summary: It was announced earlier in 2014 that Filipino workers are permitted to work on international cruise ships even if they do not hold college degrees.
Earlier this year, in January, the Philippines Labor Secretary announced that Filipino workers are permitted to work on international cruise ships even if they do not hold college degrees.
Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said that more than 47,000 jobs will be available in the transportation industry during the year across the globe. She talked about new cruise ships that were scheduled to launch in the spring and summer months. These ships were set to employ thousands of workers as crew and staff members.
There was a total of 15 international cruise ships that went into service at various times this year and all of them required Filipino high school graduates as workers. They needed to have working experience and an ability to speak and write English.
Many companies in the transportation and tourist industries are hiring workers without college degrees, but with working experience in order to fill thousands of open jobs. The employees need to have experience in information technology, security and health and beauty. Other jobs open include performers, entertainers, swimming instructors and disc jockeys.
Other jobs filled on the new cruise ships this year included deck hands, waiters, cooks, bartenders, massage therapists and hair stylists. Baldoz said that the Philippines is one of the largest providers of cruise ship employees in the shipping industry.
