According to the city's Centre for Human Resource Forecasts and Labour Information, industries with high recruitment needs require specialists in marketing, services, information technology, accounting, real estate and garment-footwear production.

Next month, the demand for jobs is expected to increase by 30 percent from this month, as a number of probationary students and new graduates will enter the job market.

The city has recorded double-digit economic growth for nearly 20 years now. Its annual income per capita has reached 5,000 USD.-VNA
