A representative from Falmi said now is the time when businesses increase the recruitment of workers to complete production and business plans and orders for the last months of the year.
Notably, the business – sale sector accounts for 23.24 percent of the recruitment demand, while the service sector is 15.55 percent.
According to Vice Director of the HCM City Youth Vocational Training, Career Orientation and Employment Service Centre (YES Centre) Nguyen Van Sang, from now to the year-end, businesses have great needs of recruiting workers, especially experienced workers, high quality human resources, skilled labourers, and those with foreign language fluency and other skills.
Professional working environment requires workers to equip themselves with appropriate knowledge and skills to meet labour market needs, he noted.
Sang said his centre has coordinated with the Ho Chi Minh City University of Industry to organise a job fair to find more than 7,000 workers from enterprises. Most businesses needed employees in the fields of information technology, environment, construction, economy - finance, tourism - restaurant - hotel, translation - interpretation, law, architecture, and fashion.
In the first nine months of 2019, HCM City recorded over 29,600 newly-registered businesses with a total capital of 450 trillion VND (19.4 billion USD).
Labour and employment experts said the city’s socio-economic stability has had positive impact on labour supply and demand.
