HA NOI (VNS)— A new survey of more than 2,650 students in Ha Noi, HCM City and Da Nang revealed that 47 per cent planned to find a job as soon as they graduated from college.

The survey, funded by Unilever and Adecco companies, also revealed that 33 per cent of the students wished to seek higher education abroad. Nearly 7 per cent said they wanted to take a gap year to give themselves a break before engaging in the labour market while around 4 per cent were unsure about their future plans.

The survey also showed that students were confident about their career prospects. Nearly 21 per cent said they would be able to find a suitable job after graduation, 29 per cent said they would manage to do so after one or two months and another 25 per cent said it might take them three months.

The rest said they might be able to find a job in five to nine months. — VNS
