City's labour needs decline

Update: September, 26/2012 - 10:28

HCM CITY (VNS)— The human resource needs of enterprises and companies in HCM City in the last quarter of this year will be less than in the third quarter, according to the city's employment agency.

Tran Anh Tuan, deputy director of the HCM City Centre for Forecasting Manpower Needs and Labour Market Information, said firms will look to employ 65,000 people as against 80,000 in the third quarter.

Firms will employ around 20,000 people each in October and November and 25,000 in December, he added.

Nearly 52 per cent of the fourth-quarter jobs will be in marketing, sales and services, Tuan said.

Forty per cent of the demand will be for manual workers, 25 per cent for graduates from colleges and universities and the remaining for vocational school graduates.

Studies show that demand for workers with technical skills increased in this year's first three quarters, but only 70 per cent of it was met, Tuan said.

In first nine months of this year, the city created jobs for more than 210,000 people including 85,000 new jobs, according to the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. — VNS
