HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City Centre of Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labour Market Information (FALMI) has forecast a requirement for 20,000 new employees next month.
About 35 per cent of the total labour demand will be for unskilled workers, while an equal number of graduates will also be needed.
The rest of the demand for workers in the city's enterprises and businesses is for technicians and students graduating in vocational training.
New job opportunities are opening up mainly in sectors such as information technology, textiles and footwear, real estate and sales marketing and public relations, besides mechanics.
Meanwhile, FALMI Vice-Director Tran Anh Tuan said the demand for jobs will rise by 15 per cent in May, compared to the previous month.
"A large number of the students expecting to graduate next month will join the labour market, which will increase the demand for jobs," Tuan said. — VNS
