Hello friends,
I am a new join here and would like to ask for your counsels.
I just got a new job in leading company based in Thailand, taking care of regional hr (Myanmar) and newly assigned to recruit new Myanmar staffs by a number of 40s in technician position.
An issue concerned is that the Myanmar is just opened its gates for investment and I do not even know what type of schools existed in the country. That means I don't know how can i find a pool of qualified people there.
Thank you in advance for all your advice given.

Dear Concerned,

Greetings!!!

Being a regional HR , you can not complain of lack of knowledge about localization. Just start browsing on Google and you will come across many technical schools that exist in and around your place of work. There are many steps that you can take , in order to kick off your project.

1. You can start calling the placement/administrative heads of these schools telling them to send final year student for placement.

2. You can start a referral program in your own company, wherein, you can have some sort of incentive for those employees who refer successful candidates.

3. You can buy a database of job seekers and fetch data/pool of candidates from there. In my opinion , Jobsdb and Monster Thailand are the two biggest databases out there.

4. If you have enough recruitment budget, then you can do job postings, job adverts, job fairs etc.

PS: You need to remember that 40 is too small a number, in terms of recruitment, to get adversely affected by liberalization.Had it been 400, your concern would've been justified. Just stay positive and focused, you will achieve your target.
Dear BR
When you do any work in a new country, you must be aware of what you are getting into.
I am sure your company has set up an office there.
Speak to the country manager and get as much info as you can, including names of schools, government vocational programs, etc.
I do not know the budgets that you have, but a quick trip to understand first hand, the situation on the ground would also be a good idea.
Check out forums that may exist.
Speak also to the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok. They will have a business / commerce desk. They will help with information and perhaps even contact numbers. Thats what the business desk is for. If its something that benefits their country, they should be more than happy to oblige

You can also contact to college over there with respect to your domain of requirement. Then you should arrange placement/campus interview in such relevant colleges.
