According to a report by Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Welfare, there are about 162.000 bachelor’s holders in Vietnam who are currently unemployed (up to Quarter II of 2014). In many people’s opinions, there are various reasons for that situation, but the biggest one is undoubtedly the lack of career guidance for young people.
With the desire to provide students with useful information about IT industry and job requirements, Ho Chi Minh University of Technology held a Career Guidance Conference for Freshmen Course 14, IT Major of International Study Programs. Mr. Pham Kim Ngan – CTO of Mat Bao Group and Ms. Tran Phuong Linh – CEO of Mat Bao BPO also participated in the conference.
Ms. Tran Thi Phuong Linh – CEO of Mat Bao BPO talking about how to write a CV and job interview tips
Mr. Ngan and Ms. Phuong Linh shared their views from a business perspective about the IT industry and employers’ recruitment requirements for graduates as well as giving students a brief guide on how to write a successful CV and the key for interview success.
We hope that such career guidance seminars will be held more often to help young people have a clear view of their future careers, from which they carry out a suitable studying plan in order to reach out to their dreams. We also expect that in the near future, training and educational institution will open their door to get closer to students and support them from the early stage so that they can match the job requirements of the recruiters.
