Every job has its pros and cons. But sometimes, having great pay can outweigh all the rest. If you're someone who believes that, then this list of the highest-paying jobs in the Philippines might be of interest. The Bureau of Local Employment, in cooperation with the DOLE, has released its report on labor market trends for 2019 with a focus on the Philippines' highest-paying jobs.

Though the government has done several reports in the past, the findings of this recent issue are particularly fascinating since the Philippines continues to be one of the fastest-growing economies. The bureau points to the younger population as one of the factors of the unprecedented growth trajectory of the economy, but it also asserts that the youth's contribution lies on the knowledge and skills they acquire through education and training.
