TDC Recruitment program
It is a valuable opportunity! I co-host a recruitment program with another designer to recruit talents by coaching and mentoring the participants to complete the design challenges. At the end of the evaluation, we offered a scholarship to those who achieve the expectation. We partner with Thammasat Design Center, a Thailand-based design institution that provides various design-related courses, to reach out to a broaden designers community in Bangkok.
From participants' feedback, we are glad to hear that they learn something out of design skills, but communication, research methods, and measurable testing. I learned a lot along the way by providing feedback and guide direction. It was also my first time giving a public speech about design topics and let more people know about Agoda Design. Many people got interested and came to have a chat after my sharing.
After two batches of the program, we handed it over to other designers to continue coaching the potential talents, and it becomes a regular program within the Agoda Design team.
