Organised by the Korea Trade and Investment Promotion Agency and the RoK Consulate General in the city, the Job Fair for Global Talents 2015 seeks to connect Korean companies with young Vietnamese talents.

The participating firms include Hyosung, ITL, Lotte Mart, Fuji Xerox and CJ. They hope to recruit 320 people for a variety of jobs, including tax and accounting specialists, technology sales/marketing, production/QC management, designers, merchandisers, engineers, human resources, general affair managers, and finance managers.

Park Noh-wan, RoK Consul General to HCM City, said an increasing number of Korean firms are investing in Vietnam, resulting in a big demand for human resources in many sectors.

About 2,700 Korean firms operate in Vietnam, employing about 800,000 Vietnamese, and the number is expected to increase further, especially when the Samsung Consumer Electronics HCM City Complex opens, he said.

The RoK is the biggest foreign investor in Vietnam this year with over 6.1 billion USD, or 31.3 percent of total FDI, according to the Foreign Investment Agency.

The job fair, which was first held in HCM City in 2013, has received positive feedback from RoK businesses as well as Vietnamese candidates.
