Ho Chi Minh City will need 19,000 new employees for 1,371 businesses after the Tet Lunar New Year break, a labor center said.
The city’s Center of Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labor Market Information (FALMI) said the demand comes from different sectors from sales and marketing, hospitality, design, communications, mechanics and electronics engineering, food processing, garment and leather shoes, to house helping, security and delivery services.
A third of the vacancies are for part-time and temporary jobs, it said, as cited by local media.
Tran Anh Tuan, deputy director of the center, said the demand is lower than after the holiday last year as businesses have improved their policies to keep workers stay.
The center said the city is expected to have around 65,000 job vacancies in the first quarter this year, including 20 percent with university graduate requirements.
