we want you image

Thank you for your interest in a position with AmCham. We hire enthusiastic, self-motivated, and superbly qualified people to help us support the success of our members by promoting a healthy business environment in Vietnam and by strengthening US-Vietnam commercial ties.

Right now, we are looking to hire one lucky person who’s willing to become part of our mission and team here at AmCham Hanoi.

Here is who AmCham is looking for:

  • Somebody who has the ability to get things done.
  • Somebody who isn’t afraid to use their own brain and speak up – if you think we can improve, tell us!
  • Somebody who is good with technology and loves optimization and creating systems (effective ways to get things done).
  • Somebody who wants to learn new skills and try new things.
  • Somebody who is supremely organized.
  • Somebody who finds new work to do even when we are too busy to assign something. We need you to treat AmCham like it’s your baby and find ways to nourish it.
  • Somebody who is ambitious, creative, passionate about work, and ready to contribute.
  • Somebody who has high levels of honesty and integrity. You will have a ton of freedom and we expect you to be productive with very little supervision.
  • Somebody who meets deadlines and is punctual.
  • Somebody who pays attention to detail and catches errors before they are seen externally.
  • Somebody who responds positively to time-pressure and stressful situations.
  • Somebody who recognizes that productivity in the modern world often requires emails to be checked outside of normal working hours.

Here is what you will be responsible for:

  • Running, updating, and improving the AmCham website and our social media tools.
  • Publications and advertisement design and sales.
  • Helping recruit and retain members and partner vendors.
  • Creating new systems and procedures and implementing ways to provide people with astonishing value and WOW service.
  • Completing mini-projects and administrative tasks of various types that are vital to the effectiveness of our organization.
  • Managing the AmCham internship program.
  • Helping find people that we will outsource work to in order to optimize our business.


  • You will get to be part of a supportive team that cares for their people. Once you’re in, you’re family.
  • You will learn how to become the best version of yourself – independent and confident!
  • You will work for an organization with a great reputation and American values.
  • You will be proud of your work.
  • You will gain valuable experience and build a great network of professionals.
  • You will be offered a competitive compensation package.

How to apply:

If you’re leaning forward in your seat right now because you can’t stand the excitement of this job offer, we want to know about you.

Guess what? We don’t care about your grades or what school you attended. We don’t “do” resumes or cover letters. We simply let your actions and results speak for themselves.

Here’s the first challenge: Create a 2-minute YouTube video answering the question, “What will you bring to AmCham?” (We need to see you in the video and it needs to be in English).

Then send an email to: [email protected] with “I want to work at AmCham” in the subject line. Include the link to your video clip and also be sure to include your full contact information in the email.

So tell us why you want to work at AmCham, if it’s a good fit, we’ll let you know the next step.

Do not bother applying if:

  • You don’t really know what AmCham is and what we do. There are plenty of other companies you can go work for.
  • You don’t feel confident telling the boss the truth when problems arise. We need you to be honest and straightforward with us. We’re a team.
  • You believe that telling lies or withholding information will help cover up a problem.
  • You are not *great* at getting things done.
  • You are not a problem solver. Don’t come to us with problems; instead, come to us with a problem and then the potential solutions for that problem. We don’t expect you always know solutions to problems. We do expect you can use the Internet and other tools to find solutions on your own. We want an action-taker, not someone we have to babysit.
  • You do not complete work on-time.
  • You make excuses instead of taking corrective actions to avoid problems.
  • You don’t like the idea of spending 10-minutes at the end of each workday sending the boss a daily update. Your daily update will answer 3 questions: 1) What you accomplished (not what you did, but what you accomplished). 2) What problems you encountered. 3) What questions you have.

Lastly, a warning in advance:

We are only looking to hire a “rock star” who is ready to take on AmCham as their mission in life. This is not a place to chat, eat fruit, and spend ½ the day looking at your friends’ photos on Facebook. We want somebody committed to helping us improve value for our members.

If you think you are right for this, then we can’t wait to see your 2-minute video.
