Thank-you Letter

“ When I went there, I read job announcement on the board, and then I spoke to the job center staff to get more information. The staff helped me write my CV and apply for work. Many people were interviewed, but I got it.”

.My name is Sou Bunheng, age 23. Currently, I am working at a representative office of Panasonic Cambodia. I am more than happy for that fact that NEA provided me with a chance to get interviewed at Panasonic, which marked the starting point of my career path as it came to light.
