Jobsdb by SEEK reveals economic insights: Executive and Production Manager positions top jobs search keywords.

Ms. Duangporn Prom-on, Managing Director of Jobsdb by SEEK, highlighted that the most popular search terms on Jobsdb by SEEK's website,, mirror the current economic conditions and the slowdown in the production sector. As the leading job search platform with a database of over 3.7 million applicants in Thailand and more than 47.5 million page views, it was found that the most searched job positions in the first half of 2024 are managers, executives, and production managers.

The insights from Jobsdb by SEEK aligns with reports from the Federation of Thai Industries, which stated that in the first half of the year, over 360 Thai businesses have already closed their factories, amounting to an investment loss exceeding 9.4 billion baht and over 10,000 job layoffs. This represents an increase over the average of the past two years. Furthermore, there's a potential for an additional 700 factory closures if the government raises the nationwide minimum wage to 400 baht per day. These reports underscore a deteriorating Thai economy, particularly in the industrial sector, which faces competitiveness challenges, with factory closures rising from 1,100 to 1,700. Compounding these issues are increasing non-performing debts, posing significant economic risks for Thailand.

"Based on the most searched terms on Jobsdb by SEEK's website, which included manager, executive, and production Manager as the top searches in May, this aligns with the current economic slowdown in Thailand's industrial sector. Many employers are laying off many employees, and some are even closing down, as the Federation of Thai Industries reported. Meanwhile, Thailand's labor market remains fiercely competitive due to a growing population, exacerbating economic fluctuations. Whether in the workforce or recent graduates from various fields, individuals compete vigorously to secure suitable jobs with rewarding compensation." Ms. Duangporn commented.

"Therefore, all job seekers should prioritize professional resume writing and regularly updating their resume. This is like the first gateway to landing the right job and preferred position.
