Looking for a Job in Thailand, read my more detailed posts:
There is a whole long list of jobs which foreigners are prohibited from doing in Thailand. You can see the list here! Apart from these the general rule for working in Thailand is: If a Thai can do the job, a foreigner will have to have a damn good reason to be doing it instead. Unless your company can provide evidence and reasoning that a foreigner is needed for the position you will not be able to work legally. The main job that people find when coming to Thailand is teaching, if you’re okay with teaching English your set. There are tonnes of jobs about and even without the legally necessary requirements of a bachelor’s degree and TEFL/CELTA certification you won’t struggle to find work! Of course if you have these required qualifications you will find work even more easily and generally you will be paid more.
