Ven Bunly: From destitute farm boy to the owner of a recruitment company

Some young people say: you can’t see the future. To achieve your number one goal in life, aside from hard work, you also need a bit of luck to make your destiny come true.

For Ven Bunly, 26, owner of HRCambo Recruiting Co, Ltd, he never believed he, a boy in secondary school at the rural-area level, would be able to open his own company some day. He said the secret to his success was simply determination, perseverance, courage and luck.

In an outfit truly fit for a business-owner, Bunly told his story of how he became the owner of a company while simultaneously pursuing his first bachelor’s degree.

In 2003 he moved from Takeo to Sihanouk province to continue his secondary school. Later on in 2007, Bunly went to work in a recruitment company owned by a South African acquaintance in Phnom Penh Phnom

In 2008, seeing Bunly’s desire to continue his studies, the foreign boss provided Bunly a full-ride scholarship to study at Pannasastra University of Cambodia, majoring in business communications.

“My South African boss is one of the people who changed my destiny for the better, but it also came along with my own hard work,” he continued.

In 2012, after working in the HR Inc for six years, he decided to leave the company and started his own entrepreneurial adventure.

He explained about his decision: “It’s because of my cost of living and my desire to achieve a higher level of success. I know about this field after gaining many years of experience.”

HRCambo Recruiting proved its success: it has always made a profit since the beginning.

Bunly added that the company is not without its own issues. Currently there is a high rate of competition in the recruitment field as Cambodia has a more free market. Bunly’s company also lacks the human resources to provide for the needs of all clients.

His company provides recruitment services for clients such as permanent placement and outsourcing. The company helps to outsource the applications and help the applicants to prepare for their curriculum vitaes (CVs). Also his company gives applicants tips on a good job interview.

Besides these services, Bunly also checks the applicant profiles for those who have inquired about job postings.

Lastly, Bunly talked about what’s in store for the future of his business. He would like to provide travel agency and event management services.
