Before I joined Magnecomp Precision Technology (MPT), I was working with SVI PCL. In 2015, I was looking for a new opportunity. I came to know about Career Fair at AIT. I decided to attend the Career Fair. That time I didn’t know whether MPT is coming to recruit engineers at the Fair. But later on I approached MPT because it had a position which was matching with my profile. In the initial screening I had an interview with HR managers from MPT. They asked basic questions regarding my experience, current company , nature of work and they also asked whether I can speak in Thai or not, which I managed to speak. They were impressed. Later on, they invited me for a second interview with the manager, but I had no time for that due to my office work. I requested them to give another date for an interview at MPT. I got a call and date for an interview. I had a good interview, which was undertaken with 2 managers. I also had some technical tests. After one week, they again called me for a second interview with some presentation about my projects in previous companies. Probably 10 managers/engineers were involved in my interview process and my presentation. I had a good presentation and good answers for their queries. After 1 or 2 weeks, I got a call for joining MPT and within 1 month, I received an appointment letter.
I have never even thought of working here in Bangkok. But after I worked as an intern at AIT AI center, I realized that I could gain a lot of experiences from working in Thailand than in my country. So in my last semester at AIT, I applied for a web developer position at Codium, which is one of the leading software companies in Thailand. They first replied me with a programming quiz to test my skill. After i solved it they invited me to an interview but i never knew there would be a technical test, i was unprepared. But fortunately, I had sufficient knowledge of web development to pass the test at that time and now i have become a professional developer, working with many exciting big projects and enjoying the atmosphere. I would like to thank my professors for all the guidance and help along the path. And of course, if it wasn’t for the career fair hosted by the career center, I would probably still be finding job this time.
I am thankful to AIT Career Center for organizing a Career Talk with TEAM Group of companies which paved the way for my journey with TEAM. It was a great opportunity to meet Dr.Saratchai Ongprasert, the head of Advanced Technology Center of TEAM who was impressed with my master’s thesis on Building Information Modeling(BIM). After a few rounds of interviews, I was selected as a R&D Engineer for their Advanced Technology Center.
It is a great opportunity be a part of TEAM. The guidance of my advisers headed by Dr. Bonaventura Hadikusumo at the department of CEIM, AIT was a great motivation.
Coming to AIT is truly a dream come true because of it’s amazing vicinity, cool lifestyle, friendly professors and relaxing vibes. Practical teachings, sportive competition both in curricular and cultural activities in AIT’s rich international atmosphere made me learn lot of things.Ever since I’ve come to Thailand, working here was always on my mind. Though there is less scope for the foreigners to get a job here, Career Fairs always succeeded to load confidence in us. Three Career Fairs happen to be held while I was in AIT and where I found a chance to know about “Erawan Sugar Company” in the third Career Fair.
While few companies are ready to hire me, it was difficult to choose the best challenging core job from them. During my research I woke up every day to see if there is an admission letter from Erawan. Being curious, I applied for the IT programmer position in Erawan’s portal page again. One day I was called for a technical interview and then to the company visit after a couple of weeks. I got the same kind of job which I’m looking for when my research was in its culmination stage. Every lecture and course I’ve attended had contributed hugely in escalating me to this stage. I will always be obliged to AIT. Thanks a ton.
I first applied for a 3-month summer internship at Codium, a software consultancy, at the AIT Career Fair during the January semester of 2018. A few nervous weeks later, an email arrived, inviting me to an interview at their office in central Bangkok. And that’s how my journey at Codium started. Since I was (and still am) studying for a Bachelor in Information and Communication Technology here at AIT, this internship was my first professional experience. I was tasked with developing and maintaining a variety of web applications and learnt a lot about teamwork and software development in general. The company atmosphere was very friendly and inclusive. Safe to say, my experience at Codium played an unmistakable role in shaping my future professional aspirations. My heartfelt thanks to the Career Center for giving me this opportunity through the Career Fair and kudos to the folks over at Codium for making this a truly invaluable experience.
The journey to securing this job started from the Career Talk organized by the AIT Career Center. I’m greatly indebted to the team for giving us such wonderful opportunities to interact with the companies and build a better understanding of the corporate world. Finally, when the company came to the biggest event of the semester; “The Career Fair”, I got the chance to be as their volunteer and from there everything went just right.
I will be always thankful to the Career Center for their kind support at each step and for providing us such platforms to excel in our careers. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Carla and the entire Career Center team for all your help and support at each step.
