Hi Jason,
Thank you so much for your post. One of the major tricks in finding work in the Phuket job industry is who you know and good networking skills.


-Locate to Phuket as soon as you can, why? Most of the expats that I know who work in the Hotel service industry, found out through the grapevine and then followed through quickly, for that particular position that was offered.

-Visit all the major resorts; Talk to them, get to know them and tell them what you can do for them.

-Start small and progress; Get TEFL qualified, this often opens doors to other opportunity's in the future. Although the pay is not that good, it's a good place to start.

-Pickup one of the local papers like the Phuket Gazette, go to the help wanted section and follow through with every job that interests you, again, you "must be in Phuket" when you follow through.

-Join my Phuket Dreamer, it's free, and a good networking source, I am stating to get a huge amount of traffic to that site (See Alexa rank).

-Having a military background is a big "Plus" and a lot of resorts that I have talked to like that. I spent 25 years in the US Navy my self.

Hope this helps and good luck in your Phuket job search.
