      The Thailand Tech Revolution – Why the Boom?

      Since the start of Thailand 4.0, the country has seen a boost in high-tech industries, including IT and high-value manufacturing and engineering. This evolution orchestrated by the government has created employment for millions, attracting multinational corporations and creating a fertile marketplace for tech startups.

      The result is a booming tech ecosphere in what is the second-largest economy in the ASEAN trading zone. Attracted by a strong supply of IT professionals across the experience spectrum, employers are enjoying unrivalled incentives to set up in Bangkok and beyond. And with a healthy supply of exciting IT job opportunities, come jobseekers from Thailand and around the world, both fresh out of university and with extensive career experience.

      The bottom line: The Thailand IT job sector is very healthy, with plenty of supply and demand, if you’re already a part of it then you’re positioned for growth. And if you’re new to the industry looking for a job or talent, with the right help you can find exactly what you need.

      Four Bangkok IT and Tech trends for 2022

      The most successful job seekers and employers we deal with in IT understand where the industry is going and how changes will impact their approach to recruitment. IT is one of the fastest moving industries in the world and both job seekers and employers can benefit greatly from insight into what they should be considering when looking for work or a new employee. From our extensive work with clients and candidates in Tech, and supported by the findings of Glassdoor research, these are the four key trends to be aware of in Thailand IT recruitment for 2022 and beyond:

      Shorter interviews

      Whether you’re a professional or a business, you’ll probably know developers don’t like interviewing for jobs. Leading employers know this and are attracting top talent, in part, by adapting their hiring process to suit the customer – in this case a developer. As a job seeker, this is useful to know as it is often an indicator of a forward-thinking employer. And as an employer, this approach can improve your chances of securing top talent.

      Tracked job applications

      It seems obvious that an employer looking to hire a developer would have a responsive and intuitive application process. Or maybe not, as they’re looking for a developer! Either way, the best IT companies in Bangkok are creating complete transparency in the job market by building platforms that show job seekers the real-time status of job applications.

      The impact for a business is a recruitment process that becomes a positive part of an employer’s brand and that will impress tech candidates. For job seekers, aside from the great UX, this is another sign of a disruptive employer that does things differently, which bodes well for an exciting career path.

      Pushing core IT competencies and passions

      The days of CVs, ‘essential industry experience and relevant qualifications are coming to an end, and already over in the most forward-thinking organisations. Instead, Thailand tech companies are looking at core competencies and passions to find talent with real business-wide value to offer.

      The interests and ambitions of tech professionals can change just as quickly as the industry itself, and the savviest businesses provide individuals with an opportunity to experiment with this. By tapping into the changing skills and passions of their IT talent, Thailand businesses are improving retention, development, job satisfaction, and employee engagement.

      AI in HR

      It almost seems like old news, but the gradual implementation of AI throughout businesses marches on, and IT companies are understandably at the forefront. In terms of the recruitment process, job seekers and employers in Bangkok and beyond can expect to be dealing increasingly with AI in human resources processes.

      As application processes become more mobile and responsive, AI will take over a lot of the leg work. This will mean applicants will be dealing with AI potentially until a final stage interview, and employers can reallocate human HR professionals to other roles suiting their core competencies.

      The five most common IT interview questions

      Whichever side of the Zoom call or desk you’re on, these are five interview questions we recommend to our clients. We also provide candidate examples to help job seekers.

      What interests you about this Java Developer role?

      This question will enable you to see how much research the candidate has completed and gauge their genuine enthusiasm for the role and for joining your business. These are two key factors that affect your retention success.

      As a candidate, preparing for this question will give you a fuller understanding of the role, the wider business, and the working environment. As well as encouraging you to research the position, it will also inform you and help you know if the role is the one for you. Potentially, before the interview takes place.

      How do you keep up with changes in programming languages?

      Keeping up with developments is crucial when seeking a job or new talent. If you are a developer, continual learning around html5, PHP, and javascript, for example, is a big plus for any individual or business in the tech space and reveals a lot about how progressive a candidate or employer is.

      When did you last improve on a design?

      A CIO responsible for company-wide IT infrastructure or a PHP developer, the answer to this question reveals real-world problem-solving. Employers can ask this question to understand how an individual works.

      What challenges will you face in this C# developer role?

      As a candidate, talking to a potential employer about your weaknesses may seem counter-intuitive, but this is a chance to show you’re keen to learn and grow. Answer in the context of a skill you’re currently working on. For example, you’re building your knowledge of JavaScript.

      As an employer, this is a chance to see how well the individual will fit into your culture and team environment. It also allows you to understand how committed to learning the candidate is. And therefore how much value they will bring, where they may need support, and how much ROI you’ll get when providing training.

      When was a time you had to be adaptable?

      The IT industry is in constant evolution. Projects change, opportunities come along, and stakeholder demands shift. All of this makes for a very fluid and changeable environment. This question and its answers will reveal an agile company or an employee willing to adapt to the business needs, with a team player attitude.
