Communication service Communication services include anything from radio and television to couriers and telecommunications, or telecoms. These services are some of the most in-demand across years, as most businesses need them to reach out to their target markets.

Within the communication service industry, those in education or training and healthcare received the highest entry-level salary at Php 24,000. Meanwhile, positions assigned to sales or marketing receive the highest executive or c-level salary at Php 205,000. The latter also had the highest salary increment compared to the previous year at more than 46%.

Moreover, computer and information technology (IT) companies show competitive salaries for junior executive, supervisor, and managerial levels. They are Php 47,500, Php 85,000, and Php 100,000, respectively.

Telecoms The telecoms industry covers businesses offering internet, cable, and telephone products or services. In this day and age, the importance of the industry is one not to be undervalued. In fact, it offers some of the most impressive lineups of salaries for Filipinos or Philippine-based workers.

Among all industries, telecoms offers the highest entry-level median salary at Php 20,000. Jobs related to sales and marketing have the highest salary for the same level. They also boast the highest monthly income increase at more than 39%.

Just the same, entry-level jobs with an accounting and finance background earn the least salary at just Php 16,100. Accounting and finance jobs are also among those that endured significant salary decreases in 2021.

Computer and IT To say that computer and IT workers are among the highest-paid professions in the world is an understatement. Obviously, this holds true in the Philippines as well. In fact, sectors like the IT-BPM (business process management) alone saw revenues grow up to 8% by the end of 2021.

In terms of entry-level jobs, those in the computer and IT industry are the biggest earners after telecoms workers. The median salary is Php 19,550.

Furthermore, those working in the arts, media, and communication receive the lowest salary for entry-level jobs. In addition, executive or c-level roles in the same expertise receive only about Php 80,000, a colossal difference from their computer and IT counterparts.

Electrical or electronics When talking about matters of digital nature, among the things that instantly come to mind are consumer electronics companies. Designers, producers, and sellers of electronics products all fall under the industry. These, along with other firms offering services in electric utilities and more.

Although not as high as jobs in the above sectors, salaries offered in the electrical and electronics industry are quite generous. Certainly, the field often requires intensive training and expertise among its talents. Here, salaries range anywhere from Php 17,000 to Php 161,000 depending on the job level.
