5. Do I need to indicate the reference number of the position?
 
It is necessary to indicate the reference number to avoid confusion as to what position you are applying for. There are cases when there are two different units looking for the same position title but require different job responsibilities, to indicate the reference number will help us fit the resume to the specific position being applied for.
 
6. May I send in my resume without specifying interest in a particular position/reference number?
 
While we encourage applicants to apply for specific positions, you may submit an unsolicited resume by sending it by email to hro-apply@ait.asia. It will be included in our pool of applications for future consideration. You may be contacted by the hiring unit when there is a possible position that matches your qualification.
