Local enterprises will have 27,000 available jobs in August, unveiled the Ho Chi Minh City’s Centre for Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labour Market Information (FALMI) on July 21.

Manpower demand is concentrated in the IT, garment-textiles, footwear and leather sectors and the real estate, logistics, and sales industries.

Employment opportunities are highest for unskilled labour and graduates/post-graduates, accounting for 30 percent and 28 percent of the total job offers respectively. The demand for technicians follows closely at 25 percent.

According to FALMI Vice Director Tran Anh Tuan, newly graduated students will be competing against experienced job-seekers.

The southern hub’s labour market increased its recruitment need in July by 17 percent from the previous month with a focus on new staff in the sales, logistics, IT and service sector.

Gaps between manpower supply and demand are occurring in a range of sectors including IT, garment-textiles, finance-banking and real estate.-VNA
