I have often been approached with the question\' \"Can I find a job in the Philippines?\". Well, unless you are a permanent resident, holder of a 13A visa, it is almost impossible. However, there are some opportunities. Cebu has become a hub of schools teaching English as a second language to Korean and Japanese students. Many of these schools are looking for native speakers of English to work as teachers. However, keep in mind that the salaries paid, although high by Filipino standards, are considerably lower than in the US. The average pay is 250 pesos per hour. Most schools will only hire you on a part-time basis, which means they can lay you off whenever there are not enough students.
All the fat ex-pat packages you may have heard of are given to people recruited in the home countries of foreign companies, and then shipped over here. Almost impossible to find any opportunity like that locally.
