A job fair opened in the southern province of Dong Nai on February 27, offering a chance for Vietnamese students to explore information on educational and employment opportunities at Japanese enterprises.

Jointly organised by Japan’s Ministry of Industry and Trade and the province’s Lac Hong University, the fair drew the participation of 13 businesses from Japan, which needs to recruit a great number of technically-skilled workers.

As many as 600 students were preliminarily selected for employment by the enterprises at the event.

Goto Yuzo, a representative from the Japanese ministry, said his country has become one of the biggest investors in Vietnam, adding that the money flow from Japan into Vietnam will continue increasing in the coming years, meaning that job opportunities for Vietnamese in Japanese firms will be very promising.

He also noted that if Vietnamese students want to work for Japanese companies, they should have a strict sense of responsibility and discipline, an inquiring mind and good foreign language skills.

Students attending the fair were also provided with advice to find jobs at Japanese businesses and to adapt their studies to meet the requirements of these enterprises.-VNA
