According to a survey by the Center for Forecasting Manpower Demand in Ho Chi Minh City, over the last six months of this year the city will create 140,000 new jobs to meet demand, including 30,000 seasonal jobs, representing a strong increase against the first six months of the year.
The survey showed that new recruitment needs mainly focus on business - commerce- management, accounting for 31.59 per cent, services 17.68 per cent, electronics - information technology 8.11 per cent, and tourism 6.86 per cent.

Recruitment demand for high quality business managers will be on the rise, especially in four key industries: mechanical engineering, electronics, information technology, and food processing.
