A job fair took place in the southern province of Dong Nai on January 23, offering an opportunity to local job seekers to find jobs in Japanese firms.

Twenty Japanese enterprises operating in the southern key economic zones attended the event, which was jointly organised by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Lac Hong University.
Suzuki Kyoichi from METI said the fair served as a bridge to connect Japanese firms and Vietnamese students and labourers.

He noted that there is an increasing number of Japanese enterprises invested in Vietnam and they have a great demand for high-quality human resources.

According to Dr. Do Huu Tai, Rector of Lac Hong University, the school is cooperating with a large number of firms operating in the region in training high-quality workforce.

At the event, about 1,000 students registered to take part in recruitment interviews. They were provided with advices on skills needed when working in Japanese companies.

On the occasion, 36 students studying in the Lac Hong University, who finished a training course on Japanese-styled working culture, were presented certificates from the Japanese ministry.-VNA
