Bac Ninh (VNA) – Nearly 400 of job seekers, who had worked in the Republic of Korea (RoK) under the Employment Permit System (EPS) programme, took part in a job fair in the northern province of Bac Ninh on April 19.

At the fair, held by the Job Service Centre under the provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, job seekers from across the northern region had a chance to access employment opportunities in 21 RoK firms in Vietnam.

Participating companies mostly operated in the manufacturing sector and were in need of interpreters, office staff, electricians and mechanical workers.

Dinh Van Duyet, director of the Bac Ninh Employment Service Centre, said RoK firms in Vietnam have high demand for employees, particularly Vietnamese once working in the country.

Vietnamese returning from the RoK boast good skills, discipline, and training suitable to these companies, he added.

He said the salary paid by RoK firms is high in comparison to that of other foreign-funded businesses in Bac Ninh. According to him, the monthly wage is between 8 and 12 million VND (352 – 528 USD) for unskilled workers and about 20 million VND (880 USD) for posts requiring qualifications like interpreters, accountants, or human resources staff.
