Career service websites noted that rapid technological developments have created many tools and software for companies to use, so staff who can make use of these tools for the companies' advantage are in demand. There are many helpful hi-tech tools and software now, including smartphones and tablets, and human resources who can develop new applications for their platforms are needed, besides the popularity of social media among businesses has also raised demand for employees with IT skills. The demand for IT and computer personnel is higher, but the number of graduates from these fields to fill the growing demand is not enough, Vichien Shnatepaporn, CEO of Top Gun Group said adding this trend is likely to continue for 10 years. A programmer who is a new graduate from a leading state university could start with a Bt18,000 (S$740) monthly salary in a local company and up to Bt30,000 (S$1,235) in a multinational company. New graduates working in other fields earn around Bt12,000 (S$494) Bt14,000 (S$576) maximum. Besides computer and IT skills, more job opportunities would open up for those with green technology expertise. Environmental engineering graduates would have an advantage, but personnel familiar with environmentally friendly technology should also improve their knowledge. It is expected that scientists, technicians and researchers would be desired in the next five or six years, as innovations and medicine would have to respond to people's needs. On the other hand, accounting still faces a shortage of personnel but vocational education is recommended because industry could not find enough workers, besides staff with human resources (HR) and administration skills would be popular.
