Where to look for jobs in Thailand

Finding a job

There are many ways to find a job in Thailand. When looking for a job, be aware that many jobs are only available to Thai citizens.

The ways of looking for a job in Thailand include the following:

Newspapers: World today, Bangkok daily and Bangkok post are the country's main newspapers and often contain job offers. However, be aware that positions advertised in the newspapers may already be filled, as many companies post vacancies just to generate publicity.

Internet: Most Expatriates will find it comfortable to search for a job online, on websites like Jobzing and Monster . Online recruitment websites allow you to search according to certain criteria, such as sector, salary and region. If you speak Thai, the Ministry of Labour's website , the Department of Employment  or the Department of Skills Development  may be helpful.

Recruitment agencies: If you want to get professional help with your job search, contact Thai recruitment agencies. They usually work with large companies and have a good overview of the current economic situation. Additionally, they can advise you with information about the job market, applications, how to behave in an interview etc. Note that the agencies will always charge a fee for their services – either from you or from the company you will work for.

Networking: Online expatriate forums may also help you to gain some information and advice on Thailand´s job market. To make contact with people who work in Thailand, you can check the common social networking sites such as Linkedin  and Xing  or check the Thai job portal on Just Landed.
