Webmaster on Phuket
A Flexible Job Option on Phuket
Many International Travel companies and other types of companies have set up shop on Phuket and if you keep your eyes open, you will see openings advertised in the Phuket Gazette for locals or foreigners with Web and Internet design skills.
These jobs often look for people with basic programming skills and good previous experience. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but if it is one of your skills, it isvery worth looking in to.
If you interview for such a job, be sure to be sure that it comes with a work permit and if not, don’t take it.
More and more people are learning these skills and working for themselves these days. Working for yourself is a great job option, but you’ll need to take into consideration what you will do about a visa to keep your presence on the island and in the country legal.
It won’t take you long to meet a few people who are working online and strictly for themselves on Phuket. Most will not have formalized (made 100% legal) their employment. Some will be on retirement visas and others will be on employment visas and working somewhere else in addition to their home-made business.
No matter what you do, our advice is to always keep yourself 100% legal. Then you avoid any problems with immigration and police and live your life without worry and wondering if tomorrow will be a problem.
