HCM City (VNA)
– Over 1,000 people attended a career fair co-organised by the Korea Trade Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) and the Korean Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City on December 15.

Forty-five businesses including such leading RoK enterprises and groups as CJ Group Vietnam, Lotte Cinema, E-Mart Vietnam, Taekwang Vina, Keb Hana Bank took part in the event.

They offered a wide range of vacancies, including positions in the fields of foreign languages, economics, marketing, finance, banking, telecommunication electronics, designing, chemicals, and garment-textile.

Kim Jae Hyun, HR & Admin Director at Lotte Vietnam, said his company wants to recruit a lot of employees, including HR staff, salespersons and sales team leaders.

Most of the candidates are inexperienced and need further training, therefore, those with dedication and commitments will be selected, Kim added.

Director General of KOTRA HCM City Park Sang Hyup said the number of RoK investors in Vietnam is expected to rise, therefore their demand for recruitment will increase accordingly, for both unskilled workers and senior managers.

He suggested Vietnamese labourers be equipped with foreign languages, communication skills, and technical knowledge in order to work for RoK firms.

Currently, around one million Vietnamese labourers are working in nearly 4,500 RoK firms in Vietnam.-VNA
