HÀ NỘI (VNS) –– More than 1,000 jobs will be available at a job fair for Vietnamese workers who have returned home after the end of their work contracts in South Korea, officials said.
The job fair would be held on April 24 at the Hanoi Job Service Centre under the labour, invalids and social affairs ministry (MoLISA), Nguyễn Toàn Phong, director of the centre, said.
The fair aimed to support Vietnamese labourers in the employment permit system (ESP) to get jobs and lead stable lives after they returned from South Korea, helping to reduce the number of illegal Vietnamese workers living in that country, Phong said.
Some 35 to 40 South Korean investment firms and foreign direct investment firms, as well as those in the country will participate in the job fair.
The jobs are free and of various kinds, such as for South Korean interpreters, managers and staff at hotels and restaurants, those with technical and electronic skills and general workers.
MoLISA had earlier said South Korea would recruit 3,500 Vietnamese labourers who are exemplary and loyal in their work this year. –– VNS
