Vietnam’s transition to digital technology is accelerating job opportunities for professionals skilled in IT and high-tech industries.
Vice-Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Vocational Education Association, Tran Anh Tuan, suggested that engineering technology could meet around 35% of Vietnam’s job requirements.
Fields such as automation, automotive technology, electronics, industrial design, and environmental technology are attracting a considerable workforce.
Sectors like logistics, supply chain, e-commerce, digital marketing, multimedia, finance, and banking are particularly keen as they adopt more digital technology.
Positive trends in the labour market were noted by the Hanoi Employment Service Centre in Q1 2023, attributed to the capital’s economic rebound in 2022 and early 2023.
The data suggests a continued increase in recruitment, with the demand for IT and software developers, along with game programmers, expected to rise.
