In the technology field, hiring demands remain strong in Vietnam despite massive layoffs in big tech companies across the globe.
According to the Hanoi Employment Service Centre, IT businesses were in need of recruiting 12,000-15,000 positions in the first quarter of 2023, particularly for jobs that require high expertise such as software developers.
Meanwhile the Vietnam IT market report - Tech Hiring 2022 by recruitment platform TopDev predicts that from 2022 to 2024, Vietnam will continue to be short of 150,000-195,000 developers/engineers annually.
Inbound foreign investment has also brought many opportunities, making Vietnam's IT labour market more vibrant than ever. In the past few years, big players in the technology industry such as Qualcomm Technologies, Google, Apple have opened representative offices or factories in Vietnam. Samsung and LG have built new R&D centres in Hanoi, whereas India's leading IT group HCL Technologies has approved a long-term investment plan in nearby Hung Yen province.
RMIT’s Software Engineering program helps to meet the local workforce demand by offering the skills and knowledge needed for a wide variety of career choices, such as front-end or back-end software engineer, engineers for embedded systems in electric automobiles, smart homes, manufacturing, game developer, data analyst, artificial intelligence engineer, machine learning engineer etc.
