Is it possible to find jobs other than teaching without a degree?

Hi everyone :3

First of all, I know this question was asked a lot but I'm honestly hoping for a more specific/helpful answer, so here is a quick introduction to my plan.

I'm 26 years old Egyptian and I'm planning to move to Vietnam "Probably HCMC" in August 2019, I have been to Vietnam in 2017 and I have loved every bit of it.

I'm a dropout though I'm still registered in a university but not planning to go back, I've been working for the past 3 years in business development and customer success and I love this field.

My experience mainly would be in business, customer success, account managing, marketing and online advertising, writing "Specially gaming content as I used to be a content manager in a big online gaming media company", Events planning "Gaming & Cosplay" and any aspect that may be related to gaming "testing, advertising, reviews..etc".

I'm hoping I can find a job in any of those things, if not I can still work in anything else probably, just hopefully not teaching, I don't think I will be good at that and I'd rather work in something that I'm good at, I don't mind it but again I need to be happy and for that to happen I need to know that I'm at least good where I'm working :D

I'm a very hard worker and I can always prove myself when I'm given the chance to, I'm currently working in an international online advertising company that is located in Egypt with few branches here and there and I can definitely prove myself useful in customer success fields.

So question is, is it possible to work in any of these fields without a degree therefore without a work permit, all I'm looking for is a job that is above 700$ as I understand that this should be enough to live.

Thanks in advance :3

Vietnam already produces internally slightly more college graduates than the economy can absorb.  Many of those graduates are working for less than your $700 goal in positions like bank tellers and don't require a work permit.  College dropouts should be available in abundance with most all working for less. 

There may be non-teaching employment for certain niche points that are not well served in the local economy, but I am sure that games based employment is well covered.  Remember, this is the nation that originated Flappy BIrd.

You are correct.

I have read through a lot of the threads here and many people have asked essentially the same question as you.

There seem to be two answers:

1. The possibilities for foreigners to be employed here LEGALLY are limited. It doesn't sound as if you qualify as an "expert" in anything that Vietnam needs.

2. The possibilities for foreigners to be employed here ILLEGALLY are myriad.

It sounds as if you might be able to get illegal work.

Hopefully you will be happy...

Working online not an option..?     :blink:
