|The number of students looking for jobs during the Tet holidays has risen considerably this year.|
The Center has been receiving about 400-500 applications per day, and that number is expected to continue rising in the coming days. Initially, the Center planned to help around 3,500 students to find jobs with 350 companies in the city. Up until now, 308 companies have agreed to provide 4,325 jobs for students and so far the center has already found jobs for 2,950 students.
This year as in other years, the center will continue to collaborate with the Vietnam Fatherland Front and other donor organizations to run a VND1 billion support program for students from the central and highland provinces of Vietnam with bus and train fares to return to their hometown for Tet holidays. Students from other regions are also assisted with discount fare rates during Tet.
