Overview of working in Thailand as an Expat
Foreigners looking to work in Thailand may have a lot of requirements for their new employers – but what about their qualifications? The job market in Thailand is constantly growing, and there are more opportunities than ever before.
If you’re thinking about staying here long term, it’s a good idea to make sure your paperwork is valid enough to help you find a job. Naturally, you want to find a job that suits your interests, personality, and qualifications. Before moving to Thailand, it’s important to do your research on what qualifications are needed for available jobs in the country.
Once you’re here, if you have enough time before starting work, it’s worth getting some additional training if it’s needed. Here are our top five qualifications that will be useful for working in Thailand.
- TEFL/TESOL or similar teaching qualification
- Bachelor Degree from a foreign university
- A native English speaker with an International Driving License
- Many years of work experience from home country employers
- A high level of Thai language skills
TEFL/TESOL or Similar Teaching Qualification
Due to the growth in tourism and expat population, many employers are looking for TEFL-trained teachers. If you have this certification with your Bachelor’s degree, it will be a big advantage for finding work.
In fact, it’s now a requirement for some jobs. If you also have experience, it will really boost your chances of success. For entry-level positions, look for companies that provide on-the-job training to build up your skills.
Bachelor Degree from a foreign university
A bachelor’s degree from a foreign university provides instant credibility and recognition in Thailand – even if you don’t have work experience. The degree will need to be in an area applicable to the type of work you want to do in Thailand. Also, if you’re married to a Thai citizen, your degree will be recognized in Thailand.
A Native English Speaker
A white face is highly beneficial in many situations, including looking for a job. If you can speak the language and hold a valid passport from an English-speaking country, it’s an advantage. Many positions will state they require a native speaker, so if you don’t have the language skills yet, it’s worth learning before coming to Thailand.
Many Years of Work Experience
Many Thai employers prefer people with extensive home country experience in the type of job they seek. It’s an effective shortcut for many employers, but it’s not always possible to have previous experience if you’re moving from another country. If it is available, take your time finding the right position and be ready to work hard.
A High Level of Thai Language Skills
If you can speak Thai, this is an advantage when looking for an entry-level job. There are many opportunities in Thailand for English speakers, but the Thai language skills will provide more options when starting.
