Another 120,100 people found employment through the job exchange system, with 3,000 others being sent to work in the Japanese, Taiwanese, and South Korean markets
The department reported that organizing job fairs in districts and residential areas has boosted the labor market.
At the online job transaction session on September 28, 15,578 job vacancies were announced by 121 organizations and enterprises. Covering eight provinces and cities (Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Bac Giang, Bac Ninh, Thai Nguyen, Haiphong, Thai Binh, and Ha Nam), the event was organized by the Hanoi Center for Employment Service in cooperation with Manpower Vietnam, Takahiro, Jollibee Vietnam Limited Liability Company, and Bellsystem24 Vietnam JSC.
A total of 1,206 jobs were advertised at the Hanoi job fair. The highest number of vacancies was in the trade and services sector (48.3%), followed by manufacturing, garment, and hospitality.
Vu Quang Thanh, deputy director of the Hanoi Center for Employment Service, said that with relatively attractive remuneration and various benefits for workers in addition to salaries, employers are confident of finding the right human resources. "This job fair has provided many good opportunities for workers in the city and other provinces and cities, thus contributing to promoting the labor market and ensuring sustainable social security," he added.
