According to Nguyen Thu Ha, director of Adecco’s Hanoi office, digital transformation, big data, cloud computing and IoT trends are not only opening up many local opportunities for Vietnamese IT staff, but also opening up remote opportunities in overseas companies and projects.

Therefore, although many companies offer attractive compensation and bonus schemes, they still have to make every effort to hire highly specialized candidates.

She also noted that the demand for labor in manufacturing plants such as electronics, textiles and chemicals has increased significantly this year and is expected to increase further.

Nguyen Thu Ha explained that over the past few years we have benefited greatly from the wave of production relocation and have signed free trade agreements with the EU, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

In addition to manufacturing and technology-related companies, companies in the food and beverage, consumer electronics, and energy industries also have high recruitment requirements.

Dang Thi Thai Hoa, deputy director of recruiting at Adecco Ho Chi Minh City, meanwhile noticed a labor shortage in the financial services and insurance sectors.

She said the stock market has fluctuated wildly in recent months, leading to employees resigning in favor of more stable and promising industries. According to her, the number of candidates specializing in these industries is not enough compared to the need for constant hiring.

Andeco has found that many companies are now using online and face-to-face interviews to improve recruiting efficiency and attract tech-savvy candidates.

For high-volume or mid-level vacancies, early rounds can be completed using online platforms. According to Dang Thi Thai Hoa, some companies also prepare additional assessments of candidates to quickly review a large number of resumes.

The most suitable candidates will then join physical interviews, which are one of the last steps in hiring. Companies, on the other hand, continue to prioritize face-to-face meetings from the outset for leadership positions, she added.

Le Nguyen Ngoc Thanh, Director of Adecco Vietnam, said the uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and recent inflation has made employees more cautious about work culture, additional health support, career advancement and salary increases.

They are also showing more interest in a hybrid work model, she said, adding that it would be a challenge for the manufacturing and retail sectors, but more feasible for services and service technology. – VNA
