Japanese businesses in Viet Nam are seeking thousands of workers in the electronic and electrical and mechanical engineering sectors.

But they need to speak Japanese fluently.

A company in the Saigon Hi-tech Park in HCM City’s Thu Duc city is, for example, in desperate need of tungsten inert gas welding and electrostatic spray painting workers, and is offering VND12 million a month (US$519).

Japanese businesses in Dong Nai and Binh Duong Province are also looking for experienced technical and maintenance staffs.

Le Long Son, director of Esuhai Joint Stock Company, said Japanese enterprises are expanding in Viet Nam, providing a big opportunity for young Vietnamese workers to catch up on technology and improve their working skills.

But they prefer Vietnamese interns from Japan since it helps save time and cost of training, an HR employee who recruits for Fujita Engineering and Construction Company Limited in HCM City’s District 11, said.

Nguyen Ngoc Hieu, director of V.N.T Vietnam Co., Ltd, said, there could be a lot of challenges when Vietnamese workers come to work for Japanese enterprises. Hence, they should have professional skills, punctuality, a positive and enthusiastic attitude, and follow strictly cultural norms of workplace. — VNS
