The 2013 Career Guidance – Vocational Training Festival took place in Ho Chi Minh City on May 5, under the theme “Be skillful for a bright future.”

The event, the first of its kind, acts as a bridge to connect businesses with young labourers, and at the same time opens up a wealth of occupational opportunities for students from vocational schools.

Vocational schools and centres introduced their training courses at the festival while many enterprises took the chance to advertise their job offers. Additionally, there were forums for young people to talk with business leaders or discuss career options.

Prize-winners in the 5th skill competition of trainees from vocational schools were honoured at the event.-VNA
