We tried Liso Japanese Acupuncture!

Needles may be a scary thought to most. But after a session at Liso Japanese Acupunture Clinic in Cebu, we were converted! 


People, needles are your friends.

The right kind, anyways.

*** MEET EMIL “I’m an OFW based in Male’ City, and already on my late twenties.

"My work as airport rep involves walking long distances, and helping in heavy luggage. I also play basketball weekly and live quite an active lifestyle.



“Around October 2018, out of nowhere, I felt a sharp pain on my right shoulder. It hurt so badly, I can’t even do a proper free throw. The pain subsided after several weeks of liniment oil and traditional massage, but it never went away.

“The pain was too stubborn; I just accepted it’s going to be part of my life from then on. A slight discomfort every time I raise my right arm became a norm for 8 months. There’s a 1-second ‘ow!’ when I put on or take off my shirt or reach the top of a cupboard. Although I kept on complaining about it, I didn’t seek professional help…

Finding a job in paradise is easy


Landing a job in a country famous for being a tourist haven is what you may be striving for. You probably wouldn't be checking this post if you haven't thought of it at least once. 😉

There are 3 surefire online pages that can help you check your prospects:

WORKABROAD.PH (For Filipinos only)

Early of 2017, I was getting desperate to find a job after my Cebu break. I did an application marathon for 3 days straight; I surfed all possible sites and online pages with job ads until I reached workabroad.ph. It is similar to jobstreet.ph but specializes on job placements abroad.

Recruitment agencies are the main promoters in this site so if you send an application, most probably you will not be contacting your future employer directly but the agency-- except in very few instances.

The agency who received my application forwarded my credentials to the employer. The latter, in turn, reached me directly for a short interview and eventually, for the good news (yay!). Now that I landed a spot, the ball was back to the agency to support me with all the requirements to leave the country soon.

Give your employer a heads up of the lengthy POEA process and agency fees you need to pay so they can support you until you arrive in Maldives.

JOB-MALDIVES.COM

Citizens from all over the world can check this site for job opportunities in Maldives, especially in the island resorts. Job-Maldives posts fresh ads daily which means there's more variety for all types of industries. However, based on experience, response rate through Job-Maldives is really slow. Some called me back a month to 2 months after submission of application, while I had some who responded right away but mainly because of help from friends who are working with my prospect employer.

You may also check recently launched sites like Jobsicle, Ibay, and Maldives Jobs.

INTEREST GROUPS IN FACEBOOK

Social media unites the expat community in Maldives. The Facebook groups have become a platform to ask questions, share tips and stories, inform of promotions, sell items, and post job opportunities. Below are links of FB groups that you might want to join:

For All Foreign Expats in Maldives: Expats in Maldives


Happy job hunting!
