It is a major want for Filipinos to migrate to a certain country and most of us aim for that to be reached.  Although Canada and the Middle East are among the top picks of migrating Filipino citizens, Australia is actually one of the countries now that are looking for skilled workers that vary widely in range.  In this article, we are going to discuss and present the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) from Australia so that people are aware of what these are.


First and foremost, why do skilled occupations matter?  How is it important for Filipinos migrating to a different region?  Well to tell you, there are a handful of reasons on why that matters but few of the most important reasons are because these skilled occupations focus more on finding people who actually “know” the job and since these occupations are wanted by the country, they tend to be less strict and be more open to people who fall and work by these occupations.
