DONG NAI (VNS) — The southern Dong Nai Province's enterprises plan to recruit an additional 31,000 workers from February to June this year.
These labourers will work to increase manufacturing and replace those who quit their jobs after Tet (Lunar New Year) in foreign direct investment firms.
"The enterprises will pay attention to employing workers mostly in February and March because many of their employees will possibly quit their jobs after the Lunar New Year," Pham Van Cong, vice-director of Dong Nai department of labour, invalids and social affairs, said.
Unskilled workers or those trained in vocational schools for the garment, footwear and mechanical sectors will be given priority.
He said about 20,000 enterprises were operating in the province, and the demand for recruitment was from the large firms.
In previous years, the plan for employing workers was made for the whole year. However, supply could not keep up with demand and so, the enterprises have set short-term recruitment targets this year.
The province expects to recruit more than 60,000 labourers in 2016. — VNS
