You’ve finally walked down the graduation aisle after years of conflicts with terror profs and freeloaders, epiphanies about who you are and what you should really be doing, and adventures with lifelong friends you bonded with over final papers and presentations. Congratulations, you’re done with college!

Now, you’re on to the next big thing — finding a job. And it shouldn’t be as difficult as you think.

When you look at actual statistics, the Philippine Statistics Authority announced on June 5 that the Philippines has a 94.9-percent employment rate as of April 2019. Unemployment rate since April 2018 dropped from 5.5 to 5.1 percent. Meanwhile, underemployment dropped from 17.0 to 13.5 percent.

Given these figures, you can start looking for work with a positive mindset that you’ll find something.

Add in the fact that the internet age is providing more job opportunities than ever. A forecast by Dell Technologies actually suggests that 85 percent of the jobs in 2030 have not yet been defined.

Let us back up this claim by listing the top five emerging job opportunities this year:
