Facing the strong demand for labor recruitment, International businesses have approached Vietnamese vocational schools. Some units are willing to pay tuition fees for students or provide additional equipment for the school, as long as they train them with qualified human resources.
Success or failure by Languages
Participating in the networking event between businesses and students on December 23 at Cao Thang Technical College, Mr. Namba Taro - in charge of general administration, engineering and aircraft maintenance company of Japan Airlines- said that " this is the first time his unit has come into contact with colleges in Vietnam".
The trip aims to explore future cooperation possibilities, especially in terms of human resources when the company urgently needs highly skilled engineers in charge of many important stages such as aircraft maintenance and maintenance.
Meanwhile, vocational schools in Vietnam in recent years are changing their programs in the direction of approaching international qualifications, gradually improving the output quality of students. For example, Cao Thang Technical College is collaborating with the Japanese National Institute of Technology KOSEN to train students in a number of important fields according to Japanese standards. Up to now, the first course has undergone 5 training semesters.
Therefore, according to Mr. Namba Taro, students are generally skilled. The essential thing that young people in vocational schools need for their career development in Japan is a language foundation. The stronger the Japanese language proficiency, the more opportunities students have for career advancement.
Similarly, Mr. Daisuke Shimmura - representative of ANA (Japan) - said that in this first contact with Vietnamese students, in addition to considering potential young graduates, businesses I also want to reach out to freshmen.
Students will be introduced to the company, the process of applying, working and developing their career in Japan, and can imagine some of the paths they will take. From here, some of you who form an intention to work in Japan will have enough time to prepare foreign languages as soon as possible.
As noted, not only companies from Japan are interested in Vietnamese students, but Japanese companies in the country pay special attention, especially students in the vocational education system.
A representative of Fujikura Company in Vietnam said that the company is offering special recruitment slots for college students, especially those studying programs like KOSEN. Even after graduating from college, these students will still receive the same engineering position as university graduates.
Long way
In the coming time, Dr. Dong Van Ngoc - Rector of Hanoi College of Electromechanics - thinks that a development trend of vocational schools will be training according to "order" of foreign enterprises.
These foreign enterprises may not invest, do business or open factories in Vietnam, but they may need Vietnamese vocational schools to train Vietnamese students with the right knowledge and skills to meet their requirements. . Graduates will be qualified and skilled to work in the country where the business is headquartered or in a third country.
Mr. Ngoc said that by the end of this December, a number of Japanese enterprises will also sign cooperation agreements and transfer technology and equipment to the school for human resource training. In these programs, after graduation, students will go to Japan on a special visa - a new type of visa, for skilled workers on the list of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. This is not the type of labor export as before, so students will enjoy the same salary and benefits as local Japanese workers.
According to Mr. Ngoc, although this model is beneficial to many parties, it is not easy to implement. Many programs have taken years of negotiation between Vietnamese schools and foreign companies to reach a mutual agreement between the two sides. From this milestone until the first "products" graduate students meet the requirements of employers, there is still a long way to go.

MSc Vo Thi My Van - Rector of Saigontourist School of Tourism and Hotel - said that in 2022, six students went to France to work in the kitchen industry for restaurants and hotels. This is a program signed by the university to provide human resources for the tourism industry with the recruitment company R.P Solutions specializing in the fields of kitchen, cake, reception, and catering.
Students will have two years of work in France, and starting salary is over 1,670 euros/month and increases over time. Expenses such as accommodation, travel, living expenses are also supported; moreover, labor is retraining French. The starting salary minus all expenses is 1,670 euros/month, equivalent to about 41 million VND/month. In 2 years working in Europe, wages will increase over time. Employers in France will take care of all living expenses consist of meals, accommodation, and transportation.
Although there are many incentives and the unit wishes to have about 200 candidates, the number of people going to France only stops at 6, which is relatively modest. According to Ms. Van, part of the reason may come from the psychology at the moment, going abroad to set up a business, especially in the restaurant and hotel industries, although the salary is slightly higher, it may not be much attractive. lead compared to similar jobs in the country.
Nearly 50% of Japanese companies in Ho Chi Minh City are "thirsty" for labours
According to Mr Onose Takahisa - vice president of the Japan Business Association in Ho Chi Minh City (JCCH), the headache of most Japanese businesses when they want to enter the Vietnamese market is the labour problem. Statistics conducted by JCCH this year show that about 46% of companies responded that "lack of human resources" is a problem in managing and operating their businesses in Vietnam.
When it comes to labour shortage, there is a shortage at all levels starting from unskilled to engineers and managers. "Recruiting excellent human resources is an important key for Japanese companies that have entered Vietnam to continue to expand and develop their businesses," said Mr Onose Takahisa.
Germany rolls out their red carpet
Dr Tran Thanh Hai - principal of Vien Dong College - shared that German businesses are also "carpeting" for vocational school students. Typically, the university's students enrolled in a nursing career association program with a German partner can be fully paid for by the enterprise to learn German up to the B2 level. They also pay for clinical internships at hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.
However, qualifications are an issue that Mr Hai thinks should be noted. Many programs only focus on training skills, international units do not grant degrees, which can cause disadvantages for workers when returning home after finishing the program. If you want to implement a combination of Vietnamese and international degrees, the program must be licensed by the General Department of Vocational Education.
"Besides, these combined programs also need coordination with diplomatic agencies to ensure the interests of students and workers, especially in cases of an urgent need for assistance," said Mr Hai. speak.
