HCM CITY — Japanese businesses in Việt Nam are seeking thousands of workers in the electronic and electrical and mechanical engineering sectors.

But they need to speak Japanese fluently.

A company in the Saigon Hi-tech Park in HCM City’s Thủ Đức city is, for example, in desperate need of tungsten inert gas welding and electrostatic spray painting workers, and is offering VNĐ12 million a month (US$519).

Japanese businesses in Đồng Nai and Bình Dương Province are also looking for experienced technical and maintenance staffs.

Lê Long Sơn, director of Esuhai Joint Stock Company, said Japanese enterprises are expanding in Việt Nam, providing a big opportunity for young Vietnamese workers to catch up on technology and improve their working skills.

But they prefer Vietnamese interns from Japan since it helps save time and cost of training, an HR employee who recruits for Fujita Engineering and Construction Company Limited in HCM City’s District 11, said.

Nguyễn Ngọc Hiếu, director of V.N.T Vietnam Co., Ltd, said, there could be a lot of challenges when Vietnamese workers come to work for Japanese enterprises. Hence, they should have professional skills, punctuality, a positive and enthusiastic attitude, and follow strictly cultural norms of workplace. — VNS
