Why should someone come work for you?





If you cannot give at least 10 great reasons, why someone should come and work for you, then you could be in trouble.

She started by quickly reeling off these three reasons

  • Our company in Thailand is a subsidiary of a multi-national company.
  • We are one of the global leaders in our niche industry.
  • We have a beautiful office here at Sathorn Road (Central Business District of Bangkok).

We quickly agreed that probably there were another 100 companies in Bangkok’s Central Business District that could claim the same three great reasons.
