According to the general evaluation of the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the Vietnam’s economic situation on the first half of 2009 was positive. Optimism is high for the economic situation in the last half of 2009.
HR2B works in the field of placing high level Vietnamese and expatriate talent with our industry leading clients. In recent weeks, HR2B has seen a surge in the demand for high level professional and managerial staff and so we believe the optimism people feel for the last half of 2009 is well founded.
Based on over 200 job opportunities sought by HR2B’s clients, the top 3 industries in high demand for high level positions are Informatics Technology, Consumer Products, and Telecoms-Communications. The demand for highly qualified labour force in Informatics Technology makes up 24% of the total job orders, while Consumer Products and Telecoms-Communications makes up another 20%. The Financial Services-Banking industry is also currently looking for high qualified professionals or managers.
In terms of skill sets, at the moment, high level Sales positions are considered “hot” making up approximately 40% of the job opportunities. Financial-accounting positions are second making up 14% of the total, while Marketing positions hold the third rank at 10% of total job orders.
The above statistics reinforce HR2B's view that the demand for professional and managerial level staff in Vietnam remains strong, even during the global economic slow down. HR2B reminds readers to carefully consider their own career situation before contemplating any move.
Even with a strong market, it is still possible to have difficulty finding the opportunity that fits with your particular background and career desires.
