RMIT Vietnam’s annual Career Expo benefits both students seeking jobs as well as businesses looking for well-qualified employees, according to the Managing Director of Bosch in Vietnam.

Mr Vo Quang Hue, whose company sponsored the Career Expo, said RMIT Vietnam was an ideal partner for Bosch to find job candidates with managerial potential.

“As a growing and leading global supplier of technology and services in Vietnam, to further develop our local talent pool we need employees who combine academic excellence with managerial potential,” Mr Vo said.

“With its state-of-the-art facilities, modern teaching approach and strong focus on developing professional skills, RMIT Vietnam offers graduates aligned to our requirements.”

RMT Vietnam’s Career Expo was the major event during the University’s annual Career Week. 

The week also saw students explore real career stories through a Humans of RMIT Showcase highlighting the career paths of many University staff members.

Students also enjoyed online quizzes and Employability A to Z cards describing qualities needed to help them become employable.

On the final day of the week, more than 70 companies and professional groups were involved in the Career Expo in both Hanoi and at Saigon South, including Bosch, Grant Thornton, TRG, Grab Taxi, Keppel Land, Vietnam Esports, CPA and Citibank N.A.

More than 1,000 students attended.

RMIT Vietnam Career Development and Employment Manager Nguyen Thi My Linh said the expo raised awareness of the different career opportunities for new and graduating students.

“It’s a way for companies to profile themselves and for students to learn more about what employers expect from them,” she said.
