MY WORK EXPERIENCE

I started to learn computer programming at the university in 1995. It was a solid programming skill that I learned. It took me 4 years in the university with the real projects where my team and I worked with real clients. Apart from that, I enrolled in business administration for my selective subject. The business administration subject helped me understand business operations and it assisted me when I interview and design the applications to serve and solve the business problems in my career.

After graduation, I started a new career as a programmer at a big software development company. The technologies that the company used it was an Oracle tool and Oracle database. The programming language that Oracle used at that time was PL/SQL which is based on Pascal. With my programming background, I was able to learn PL/SQL quickly. SQL is a major tool that I used with the Oracle application. To be good with SQL, I had to learn how to perform the advanced SQL, SQL tuning and database tuning. One year later, I enrolled in the Information Technology and Management of master degree. With this subject, I learned the parts of business operations where the computer (software) is able to save time and reduce human error. I was working full-time for the company and studying for my master degree at the same time. It took me 2 years to complete my degree.

After master degree graduation, I changed from a Thai company to International company. The new company allowed me to work on varies projects with both Thai and International clients. I had several roles on various projects and I enjoyed them. In some projects, I would take a programmer role. Some projects, I would take a project manager role. And some projects I would take an outsourcing role that I had to work directly with the clients at the client site. Working with a different team, different roles, and different clients, I needed to learn to adjust myself into the team. Plus I needed to learn how to communicate well with both the technical team and non-technical team. These communication skills include speaking, writing and reading. Furthermore, I needed to learn how to manage my schedule and time well since I would work on multiple projects at the same time. Finally, I had to maintain the applications and give support directly to the clients either on phone, email or on-site. The maintenance plans were the main products that the company targeted at that time.

During this time, the internet speed improved and everyone could have the internet at home, and I spent most of the time on the internet. I was curious about how those websites were made. I started to learn how to build the website by myself and accepted the site projects in order to learn and build a real website for the businesses. Once I was confident in my skills, I moved to a new company and started a new career as a web developer. Since then, I have been able to learn and build dozens of web projects for both Website and Web applications.

Over the decade of my experience in web design, I never considered changing to a new area, as I am really enjoying what I am doing in my career. The results that I build make my clients happy and achieves their goals, things which are very important to me. I can see myself enjoying to work with the creative teams and having positive thinking in mind.
