Most of the vacancies are in the city’s four key industrial sectors and nine service sectors such as engineering-automation, garment- leather shoes, transport-warehouse-import-export and electricity-refrigeration- industrial electricity.
FALMI Director Tran Thi Anh Dao said that local enterprises require experienced workers to ensure their business operation and production development.
As for the job seekers, they tend to find jobs in IT, architecture-construction, accounting-auditing, sales, transport-warehouse-import-export, customer service, and administration.
Around 94.59 % of the job applications are from experienced workers.
Regarding salaries, 26.65 % of the job seekers ask for 5-8 million VND (214.12-342.6 USD) in payment, 41.07 % propose salaries range of 8-10 million VND (342.6-428.24 USD), and 18.49 % want jobs that secure them 10-15 million VND (428.24- 642.37 USD).
