Survey identifies what is of interest for Vietnam's tech community.
Trends in interest within Vietnam’s tech community are following those around the world, according to a recent survey conducted by VietnamWorks.com.
Besides the skills necessary to meet today’s job requirements, IT job seekers need to be actively involved in the professional community, particularly in industries such as information technology, where recruitment demand is growing by more than 39 per cent in 2015 compared to 2014, said Mr. Gaku Echizenya, CEO of VietnamWorks.
“Keeping themselves up-to-date on the latest in technology trends allows IT professionals to constantly enhance their knowledge as well as equip themselves with the necessary skills to meet recruitment demands,” he said.
When it comes to which technology trends they most care about, 64 per cent of the 468 respondents who are employees in information technology and high technology companies in Vietnam chose mobile applications.
At the same time, career analytic website techlooper.com by VietnamWorks also shows that the programmed mobile industry is one of four industries that have the highest recruitment demand in the information technology sector.
According to the survey, the other most interesting technology trends in Vietnam include Big Data (with 55 per cent expressing interest) which has become increasingly “hot” over recent years among large enterprises. Start-up companies in the technology sector (46 per cent) also received a lot of attention from IT professionals.
In terms of high technology trends, more than 61 per cent were interested in SmartHome technology. Other attractive high-tech trends in Vietnam include robot technology applications in life, new security technologies, and virtual reality technology.
