London (VNA) – Vietnamese students have been equipped with start-up skills during the eight annual workshop of the Vietnam Professionals (VietPro) in London, the UK, on October 22.

The participating students were guided to acquire jobs and connect with employers.

The workshop also provided the students with information about the labour market and job opportunities in the host country.

VietPro members said first-year students can start their businesses if they have sound and realistic choices, adding that many of the world’s leading recruiters have launched start-up programmes for freshmen.

Nguyen Hai Anh, VietPro Co-President, said the association gives the top priority to connecting students with the young intellectuals who are working for leading groups and companies in finance, auditing, banking and telecommunications in the UK.

VietPro was established following the merger of two Vietnamese Facebook groups with a combined membership of around 650.

It aims to become a hub for professional networking and career opportunities. With an increasing number of talented Vietnamese who graduate from UK universities and subsequently work in various professions both in the UK and in Vietnam, VietPro is expected to become a fast-growing community that is diverse and ambitious.-VNA
