Finding Work in the Philippines At 60+.
(Updated 31 December 2018)
Recently a reader made a comment here on PhilFAQS and asked for help on a couple possible issues people often come here to learn about:
i am a 65 year old Retired teacher and Asst. Principal. I was thinking about moving to Philippines to live Although I have a pension, I was wondering about finding some kind of work and good ,safe place to live. Can you help?
Well, of course, I can help with questions like that, and I did:
Welcome Harold, I’ve written more than 1000 articles here so (I’ve been waiting for the chance to say this to a teacher for years), Do Your Homework
Places to start reading and learning:
Places to Live:
Earning for Teachers:
Note: I DO NOT recommend Americans come here to the Philippines and try to earn FROM the Philippines.
It’s a terrible idea in many different ways.
But I STRONGLY recommend “learning to earn” even before making a move, and to LIVE in the Philippines but making money from the Rest of the World.
As you can see by Shane and Jocelyn’s story above, teachers are ideally suited for this business model
Well after I posted that answer to Harold I’ve done quite a bit more thinking about it (and also about the typos I made in my original response … hopefully, all fixed in this version 😉
