Placement Manager


Tell us about yourself.

I am an energetic person who always keeps learning new things, loves to explore new places, and to see new cultures through traveling both domestically and internationally.

What is your favorite travel memory?

I don't have a favorite -- I love them all. Traveling abroad helps to broaden my soul and understand both positive and negative differences globally. I still would love to travel more, especially to Australia or the U.S., or up north to Russia.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I have developed better interpersonal skill, as well as speaking skills in both formal Thai language and English language. I realize that I have become sharper when it comes to making a decision.

Overall, working in this company has given me a great opportunity to grow, to connect with many people around the world through communication with foreign teachers, Thai teachers, international partners and Thai partners.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

One thing participants always give us feedback on is that we always support them from the beginning until they leave Thailand (not to mention supporting them through any personal issues they might have). We always help to clarify and fix problems that occur because of the language barrier between them and their school in a timely manner.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would love to go on a home-stay volunteer program because if I were a foreigner, staying with local people in a foreign country would be a great opportunity to learn their true culture. Volunteer work such as English camp is my favorite too.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

We are a small but strong team that work together to get things done effectively and quickly. We're always honest with our teachers and the Thai schools and deliver what we promised to them. Even if we can't do something, or it's out of our control, we always have their back.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

We do business honestly and clearly from the beginning. The programs we offer to teachers are reasonably competitive in terms of price and time.
