 Hanoi (VNA) - In the context of many sectors gradually recovering, the demand for human resources in early 2022 is forecast to increase sharply, especially in some service industries.

According to Pham Thi Hoai Linh, Human Resources Director at Navigos Group, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) businesses have just experienced a challenging year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, in the first quarter of 2022, the recruitment demand in this field is bustling again as businesses begin to use their new budget sources, she said.

Linh observed that financial and banking enterprises are seeking to fill many IT and sales positions.

The information and telecommunication technology sector is also expected to have big demand for competent personnel in artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, Crypto and Blockchain. However, the supply of human resources for these fields is limited, leading to a fierce competition between enterprises, added Linh.

Particularly, Navigos Search predicted that recruitment in the industrial and resort real estate would increase sharply in the first six months of this year.
