In the survey, the Philippines landed in the third spot along with Chinese Mainland, while Indonesia and India bagged the top two places. People residing in more developed markets like Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia placed at the latter positions of the survey results due to reasons of being more cautious about the economic outlook and their chances of accessing and achieving success with opportunities relevant to them.

“We believe access to opportunity should be universal and for everyone. With the inaugural LinkedIn Opportunity Index, our aim is to gain an insight into the aspirations of people across the Asia Pacific region, how they feel about the opportunities they want to pursue, as well as the barriers that may stand in their way. The growing workforce in the region is a key asset that, if harnessed effectively, is going to continue to drive the economies. Over time, by tracking people’s perception of opportunity and the barriers they face, we hope we can continue to facilitate more of a balance between demand and supply in the opportunity marketplace,” said Olivier Legrand, LinkedIn Asia Pacific Managing Director.
    “The barriers to realizing opportunities in life are very real, and despite the diversity of the Asia Pacific region, there are more similarities than differences when it comes to our hopes and aspirations. The good news is that no matter what opportunities mean for each one of us, we can count on our community for help. Whether it is learning a new skill, networking or sharing guidance, we can all help one another to unlock and create opportunities,” added Legrand.

Key Highlights of LinkedIn Opportunity Index 2018:
  • Starting own business is a top opportunity for respondents in the Philippines
  • Respondents in the Philippines cite financial status as the top barrier to opportunity
  • The Philippines believes diligence is currency to get ahead in life
