Torn between two worlds

You made the decision to spend an indefinite time here and if you’re not retiring than you’ll need to be bringing home some baht. There two kinds of jobs in Thailand or better put jobs that fit in to one of two categories, good Jobs and bad jobs, well paid jobs and jobs that pay weakly,  and of course jobs with work visas  and jobs without work visas. It goes without saying, and I quote, working without a work permits is no problem, unless that is, you get caught. That said, there seems to be a plethora of opportunities for native English speakers.

Which brings us to the final two jobs categories that are available here in Thailand:  English teaching jobs and everything else.  The market for teaching English in Asia is said to increase by 20% every year, so to is its insatiable appetite for teachers. Which means some English Language schools will place a heavy emphasis on learning, while most are just as happy to place a Scotsman with a heavy brogue in front of a class. There is nothing quite like hearing a Thai person speaking with a thick as stew Scottish accent.

There certainly is the whole gamut of institutions here, from hallowed halls of education to the churn em through English mills, these are easily spotted by their lack of air conditioners and look like what are best described as Farang Sweat shops.

Of course if your talents lay in IT than there will be no need for you put “English is like a first language to me” on your resume. The IT sector is a market that is continuing to generate a larger demand for talented ITers’.

These are only two possibilities in a very diverse job market. If you choose to work, play and stay in Thailand you’ll find it’s as easy as not being unemployed in your own country.
