The company took part in the three-day Job Expo Thailand 2020 event, which wrapped up on Monday. The event was held at Bitec Bang Na to offer job seekers new opportunities.
Abel Deng, Huawei Thailand’s CEO, was at hand to welcome PM Prayut Chan-o-cha, who was accompanied by Deputy PM General Prawit Wongsuwan, Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai, Energy Minister Supattanapong Panmeechao, Justice Minister Somsak Thepsuthin, Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin, Deputy Labour Minister Narumon Pinyosinwat, Federation of Thai Industries president Suphan Mongkolsuthee among others.
Deng told the ministers that Huawei has created a large number of openings for full-time jobs, paid training and internships in a wide range of sectors, including IT/cloud engineering, 5G ecosystem management, marketing, sales, human resources, finance and public relations.
Featuring over a million vacancies, the fair hosted “now hiring” booths from government agencies, state enterprises and private firms. Job seekers unable to attend the event can also find all open positions at Huawei Thailand via ไทยมีงานทำ.com
Despite unprecedented challenges Thailand is facing due to Covid-19, Huawei insists that Thailand’s ICT sector still has plenty of room for growth.
“Our team here in Thailand continues to expand every year. As of last August, our office recruited 36 per cent more new graduates compared to the same period last year,” Deng said. “By participating in this year’s job expo, we aim to help the government create more jobs through a quick-hiring process, which will accelerate the post-pandemic recovery. We will recruit both new graduates and seasoned workers to join us, as part of our long-term commitment to enable the country’s digital transformation.”
