Schol­ar­ship stu­dents at­tend­ing the Fedex Ca­reer Camp


From Novem­ber 6 to 8, 71 new schol­ar­ship re­cip­i­ents flocked to Bangkok from 27 univer­si­ties through­out Thai­land for an Ori­en­ta­tion Camp aimed at wel­com­ing stu­dents to the AMCHAM fam­ily and of­fer­ing guide­lines on how to get the most out of their schol­ar­ships.

The stu­dents heard pre­sen­ta­tions on AMCHAM and is­sues im­por­tant to Amer­i­can busi­ness in Thai­land, such as in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights; they were taught ba­sic com­mu­ni­ca­tions skills and how to make re­spon­si­ble de­ci­sions when drink­ing, and they were in in­tro­duced to the con­cept of com­mu­nity ser­vice, which they will be re­quired to per­form in or­der to meet the re­quire­ments for their schol­ar­ships.

On the fi­nal day of the Ori­en­ta­tion Camp the stu­dents trav­eled to Muang Sa­mut Sakhon School in Sa­mut Sakhon Prov­ince where they had a chance to ap­ply their newly- ac­quired un­der­stand­ing of com­mu­nity ser­vice by build­ing a Brain Based Learn­ing ( BBL) play­ground.


Sixty fi­nal- year univer­sity stu­dents were mo­ti­vated, ex­cited, and bet­ter pre­pared to land their first job af­ter at­tend­ing the 2015 Fedex Ca­reer Camp in Bangkok from Novem­ber 8 to 11.

Dur­ing the camp, stu­dents from 18 univer­si­ties through­out Thai­land at­tended ca­reer de­vel­op­ment work­shops hosted by hu­man re­sources ex­perts. They cov­ered top­ics such as pre­par­ing re­sumes and ac­ing the mock in­ter­views with HR pro­fes­sion­als. Se­nior ex­ec­u­tives from multi­na­tional cor­po­ra­tions, in­clud­ing Fedex, par­tic­i­pated in camp pre­sen­ta­tions and panel dis­cus­sions cov­er­ing top­ics rang­ing from per­sonal fi­nance to com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.

The stu­dents took ad­van­tage of this unique op­por­tu­nity to visit Amer­i­can com­pa­nies in Bangkok in­clud­ing Citibank, Ford, Jelly Belly Man­u­fac­tur­ing, as well as NIST In­ter­na­tional School and Amer­i­can School of Bangkok, where they met busi­ness and education lead­ers who shared their ca­reer ex­pe­ri­ences and ad­vice.

This ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram is de­signed to in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of busi­ness lead­ers and en­trepreneurs from all parts of Thai­land. The pro­gram has been run­ning since 1976, and has been sup­ported by Fedex since 2010.

All stu­dents re­ceived their schol­ar­ships from the AMCHAM Thai­land Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion’s Stu­dent Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram. In 2015, the ATCF pro­vided 200 schol­ar­ships. Each year, the ATCF awards schol­ar­ships to Thai stu­dents who demon­strate aca­demic ex­cel­lence and fi­nan­cial need.
