HCM CITY (VNS)— More than 3,000 vacancies offered by 100 enterprises were introduced to job seekers at four major inter-provincial bus stations in HCM City under a programme to help workers find suitable jobs.
The "Support Workers" programme, which was launched on Monday, provides free job consultancy and introductions to labourers from different provinces travelling to HCM City to find employment opportunities.
More than 100 participating enterprises in various sectors offered around 3,000 jobs with monthly salaries ranging from VND2.5 million to VND7 million, which were introduced directly to job seekers by volunteers at Mien Dong, Mien Tay, An Suong and Nga Tu Ga coach stations.
Jobs in places like Japan, Malaysia, Dubai and Singapore, with monthly salaries ranging from VND8 million to VND50 million, were also introduced to the workers.
Information on boarding houses and motorbike taxi services with reasonable prizes were printed on leaflets distributed to job seekers.
The programme, which will run throughout the year, aims to help workers find suitable jobs in the city without being cheated by mediators at bus stations, said Nguyen Tri Quang, director of the Youth Employment Services Centre, organiser of the programme.
More than 6,400 enterprises have so far participated in the programme, which has introduced jobs to nearly 32,600 workers over the last two years. — VNS
