How to Find a Job in Thailand

Are you planning to move to Thailand and find a decent job. To be honest, it’s not easy to find a job in Thailand simply because as an expat you need to be fluent in Thai. It’s a painful task to find a good job in Thailand. Don’t worry I’ll give you some websites where you can find jobs in Thailand.

Jobsdb.co.th

jobsdb.co.th
via jobsdb.co.th

It’s one of the most popular websites among expats and English speaking Thais. You can find high-end jobs in Thailand especially Bangkok. Most of the jobs require you to be fluent in Thai but like I said there are still few companies who hire foreigners in management positions if you have the right skills.

 

LinkedIn

You can’t ignore LinkedIn in Thailand as well, even though they do not have Thai language its used by many recruiters who are looking for foreigners or English-speaking Thais. Go an extra mile and e-mail recruiters via LinkedIn.

 

Ajarn.com

A popular job seeking site for Teaching jobs. Expats end up in teaching jobs in Thailand and this is the website where you can find all the information. They also run a blog where you can find information about Thai food to Visa to teaching jobs to teaching materials etc.

 

Craiglist

Don’t forget to check Craiglist – so many jobs are posted for free in Craiglist and you never know when you find the right contact that can get you a kick start in the kingdom. CRaiglist is most commonly used to find part-time jobs but if you can manage to get two decent part-time jobs then it’s a good start in Thailand. Finding a job for foreigners is a pain in an arse if you can’t speak, read or write Thai.
