Managing expatations! (Bangkok)
Just wanted to make an observation about local grown talent and how the expat employment situation has reversed in the last decade or so. I am working with global companies based here in Bangkok who are now more than comfortable in choosing home grown talent for senior and executive appointments. We all are aware of the demise of the expat "package" for all but the most exhaulted positions and my experience is that visitors looking for great jobs have to go shoulder to shoulder with well educated, hard working locals who are certainly not afraid to go the extra mile for their employers.
