VietNamNet Bridge – Employers are increasingly looking at working skills and job-hopping probability rather than "competitive salary requirements" when hiring new graduates, a survey has shown. A survey conducted by Jobstreet.com of 3,000 new graduates nationwide last month showed that 69 per cent were unemployed while 72 per cent of enterprises have recruitment demand. In the segment of young, new graduates, the market has both demand and supply, said Nguyen Xuan Trinh, marketing director for Jobstreet Viet Nam, said at a conference held in HCM City yesterday, July 23. "However, new graduates cannot avoid worrying about being unemployed," Trinh said. "The ‘competitive salary requirement' is no longer the prerequisite that employers consider to make recruitment decisions. They look at working skills and job-hopping probability." According to the Ministry of Education and Training, 425,000 people would graduate during the 2014-15 academic year. The third quarter of this … [Read more...] about Employers give skilled applicants priority in hiring, survey

VietNamNet Bridge – State-run agency heads who introduce Government job applicants to the recruitment process must also take responsibility for the candidates' work ability after they pass the required tests, according to provisional regulations. It was one of four new points under a pilot project to improve the recruitment process for Government officials at department and office levels. The project was spearheaded by the Ministry of Home Affairs and adopted by the Political Bureau of the Central Committee Communist Party of Viet Nam in July. Minister Nguyen Thai Binh told Viet Nam Television's Dan hoi – Bo truong tra loi (People ask – Ministers answer) Programme on Sunday that another leg to the project was to accept applications from civil servants working at all ministries and State-run agencies at localities.

by Thu Vân The regularity with which instances of brutality towards their wards by nannies and caretakers at kindergartens are coming to light is as frightening as it is horrific. It indicates a deeper social, psychological malaise that neither we, as parents and adults, nor authorities, as policymakers and law enforcers, seem to have taken cognizance of. No social worker, psychologist or other expert has come forward with credible explanation or analysis of the problem, which seems to go beyond the crime-punishment-deterrent paradigm. President Trần Đại Quang this week called for an extensive examination and inspection of compliance with laws at preschools, kindergartens and children’s groups throughout the country, in order to prevent and strictly handle violations committed against children. The request was made following the latest exposure in a series of exposures of child violence and abuse in preschools across the country. Three caregivers at … [Read more...] about How are monsters getting childcare jobs?
