Service members participating “Career guidance seminar”
In fact, being able to find a job after military discharges is not an easy task. A lot of service members completed military service still have no idea what to learn or which jobs they want to do in the future. Meanwhile, the demand for human resource working in processing and industrial zones where the camp locates is huge, especially in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong.
In order to solve that problem, the conference focuses on counselling and introducing training programs, supporting policies for service members as well as updating information of current job vacancies for them. Thereby, enterprises got the chance to find potential candidates and answered those job interview related questions from the service members.
Ms. Tran Phuong Linh – CEO of Mat Bao BPO shared the skills needed for a job interview and asked the service members questions so that they understand the importance of career orientation and be more active in finding jobs.
Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Huong – Director of Acecook Vietnam – Binh Duong branch updated the current labor market trends and granted 180 gifts to the service members.
The most exciting part was the Q&A. The service members continuously raised questions, expressed their concerns and expectations for job requirements, compensation & benefits package, working environment, etc. The enthusiasm response from the recruitment team created cozy atmosphere and brought everyone closer.

Mr. Nguyen Thanh Hung – Head of Recruitment & Training HR Department of Acecook Vietnam said: “This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to have a general view of the current recruitment situation: what do employers need and the salary they offer for different positions. Remember, it’s not about the salary you receive. More importantly, you have to be more active in finding your own job opportunities.”

Although lasting for only 3 hours, the seminar brought a lot of helpful information for the service members. Helmets and especially a Samsung Galaxy V sponsored by Mat Bao were given to the participants. Mr. Dang Hong Nhon, currently serving at Corps 4 said: “The seminar has inspired me to start thinking about my future job and not wasting the opportunities anymore.”
Mat Bao BPO also granted Corps 4 a TCL 24’’ LED for news update and entertainment. Ms. Phuong Linh said: “In the future, Mat Bao BPO will continue to participate and accompany such meaningful events like this. I’m really happy that I can help a lot of you discover your values and be more confident in finding your own paths to success after leaving the army.”
