Robust job market expected in 2017

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.

Hiring trends in Vietnam

Vietnam is becoming a major strategic business hub for IT and this will continue to drive increased demand for specialists in cloud computing, big data, business intelligence and information security in 2017. 

Technical and specialist professionals will also be hired to work for contract manufacturers as companies move production hubs to Vietnam. As the manufacturing industry continues to develop in the country, existing factories will expand and new ones will be built. Experienced project managers will be highly sought after to run these factories and conduct technology transfers from overseas.
