HCM CITY (VNS)— Job recruitment centres in HCM City are looking for students and other part-time workers for seasonal jobs during the upcoming holiday (Liberation Day) period beginning on April 30.
The HCM City Centre for Human Resource Forecasting and Labour Information says it needs 7,000 students and the HCM City Youth and Vocational Training Centre students. Most of them will work in service, sales and goods delivery.
Nguyen Trong Hoang, head of the student's life assistance division under the Students Assistance Centre, told Sai Gon Giai Phong (Liberated Sai Gon) that enterprises, managers of restaurants and small food stores need to hire nearly 1,000 students.
The salary would be VND17,000-19,000 per hour at restaurants, cafes and small food stores. Product sales staff would receive VND200,000-250,000 (US$9.5-11.9) per eight-hour shift.
Earlier this month, the HCM City Youth Employment Introduction and Vocational Training Centre began a job-assistance programme at local bus stations.
More than 1,000 people visited their facilities located at bus stations Mien Dong, Mien Tay, An Suong and Nga Tu Ga. At least 253 were recruited by local enterprises.
The programme also aims to help people from other provinces and cities find a job. They also give them information about accommodations.
About 300 companies, who employ a total of 20,000 people, have signed up with the job assistance programme. Most of the jobs are for manual labourers, with salaries of VND3.5-12 million ($167-$571). — VNS
