VietnamWorks CEO Jonah Levey said Bac Ninh’s high-tech industry is driving the recruitment demand, highlighting Nokia’s recent investment expansion.
Bac Ninh’s support industry is also prospering and Japanese conglomerates including Canon, Nittan, and Kyocera are seeking workers to fill training programme vacancies.
According to VietnamWorks, finding work is easier in Hanoi and Danang than in HCM City. Recruitment in Binh Duong and Ba Ria-Vung Tau provinces has also witnessed impressive growth.
Customer service positions are the most frequently advertised (up 38%), followed by sales and information technology (33%), and software (19%).
Labour demand in the tourism, personnel, and non-profit sectors slumped during the third quarter, falling 25%, 14% and 11% respectively.
