HCMC – The Center of Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labor Market Information HCMC (FALMI) has estimated that HCMC’s labor demand in the rest of this year would be around 23,000-25,000 people.
Around 17,000 of them are needed in trade and service, almost 8,000 in construction and a small number in the agro-forest-fishery sector.
According to FALMI, 21,000 skilled workers will be needed. Of these, 4,200 laborers should be university-educated, 5,700 should be college-educated, and 10,800 should be lower or medium-level educated.
Untrained part-time employees are also needed during the Tet holiday.
Nguyen Van Sanh, deputy director of the HCMC Youth Employment Services Center (YES Center), said the center is looking for 3,000 seasonal and unskilled workers.
Sang stressed that workers should carefully research business information and avoid job brokers.
Currently, the YES Center implements programs to provide jobs for students and those affected by layoffs.
