Working in Phuket, here are some typical jobs for foreigners in Thailand teaching, restaurant and hotel work or some type of web based business, this is one of the most popular because you can do this line of work almost anywhere.

Working in Phuket Online

This by far one of the most popular ways to make an income in Thailand all you need is a computer and an Internet connection.

To be successful on the web, your web site must get noticed by the search engines, this is a very big subject and much has been written about.

My suggestion is review the basic facts of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and incorporate these principals into your own web site. Like any other type business, it takes a lot of work and patience.

Working in Phuket or finding some type of job that can earn a sustainable income to survive while you are here can be incredibly frustrating, but did you know one of the best jobs in Phuket is working online , yes! Work for yourself, the Internet is a GoldMine , you just need to know how to tap it.

The most obvious and popular job in Thailand is teaching English or other subjects such as math, science or computers these jobs often pay better.

One credential you are going to need before you embark on such a career is teaching degree or TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language), there are many schools in Bangkok, Phuket that offer the TEFL qualification, school prices vary from $1200 – $1800 USD.

Pay for teachers range from 600 to 1800 baht per day or 25,000 to 60,000 baht per month depending upon location, your qualification and subject taught.

Some of the most common schools are in Bangkok and major cities, once you get outside the big cities you may need to open up your own school.

Restaurants, Bars and Hotels

These type jobs are most popular in the tourist areas such as Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya.

Many people have the vision of opening up their own bar, restaurant or guesthouse without really doing a realistic cost analysis or realistic expense.

My advice is before you invest your hard earned money in these type businesses, have a look at what the local competition is doing.

Do they have a large customer base? How much cash do they spend? One important point. If you check such data during high season and it looks busy, this could be a false analysis, but once low season comes around they might not see a customer for days.

Always make a realistic estimate of income and expenses, this should be calculated for the whole year, make sure you think about important items such as staff, rent, food , taxes and permits. Remember you are not going to have the returning customers to rely on.

If you are honest and realistic in your planning, more than likely you will barley make ends meet, but this does not mean not to try.
