Vietnamese workers can now easily access jobs in other countries, work remotely, and earn attractive salaries.

Meanwhile, domestic and foreign companies in the country can also easily seek talents from around the world when the domestic labour market has yet to meet their demand.

Dan Westgarth, Chief Operating Officer of Deel – a California-based human resource solution company, told Tuoi tre (Youth) newspaper that the world is entering the second stage of globalisation and people can work from everywhere.

Remote working is now a trend, so the current priority is to improve skills instead of paying too much attention to workplaces.

Foreign companies tend to recruit Vietnamese for software engineering/programming positions, data analysis, digital marketing, and data engineering.

Statistics from the US firm also show that the US, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong (China), and the UK have the biggest demand for Vietnamese personnel.

It also noted that prefers Vietnamese workers.

Vietnamese workers are believed to boast characteristics suitable for such jobs as programming, software development, and data collection and analysis.

However, Antonia Sanda, communications director for Asia-Pacific at Deel, pointed out that though Vietnam is paying great attention to developing hi-tech human resources, the current speed is unable to satisfy market demand.

Other insiders also held that despite the big recruitment demand in hi-tech industries in Vietnam, human resources’ capacity still needs to be improved.

At the Coc Coc Co. Ltd, which owns the Coc Coc web browser and search engine, demand for manpower in the fields of artificial intelligence and data science has doubled over the last three years and will continue increasing in the time ahead, said Deputy General Director Mai Thi Thanh Oanh.

She added, however, that only about 20% of the candidates meet at least 80% of the recruitment criteria to be interviewed.

After preliminary interviews, those qualified and able to go to work, drop to just 5%, she noted.

For its part, Huawei Vietnam said technology human resources in Vietnam are growing in terms of both quantity and quality.

Nguyen Huong, communications director of the Chinese-invested company, noted foreign language skills form one of the factors important to Vietnamese workers’ competitiveness compared to other countries’ talents.

Human resources of Vietnam now have better awareness of improving their foreign language skills.

Vietnam ranked 59th in the 2023 Global Remote Work Index, which evaluates the potential of 108 countries/territories to qualify as top remote work destinations. –
