Effort to link job search and resources 
 
The promising signs come as the pandemic is under control, helping recover production and business, easing unemployment or job loss during the last months of the year. Tourism and service businesses are expected to resume and open up their recruitment again, especially following local tourism stimulus policies, according to local authorities.
 
According to the leader of the Provincial Job Center, enterprises have resumed their operation and have required more labor since the COVID-19 is put under control. Job requirements are less with training provided. Some even require no previous experience. Therefore, there are more job options available by the year’s end.
 
Khanh Hoa Job Center has opened job fairs in districts and towns to provide link between employers and job-seekers. A job fair was opened in Ninh Hoa Town on October 9 showcasing 400 job vacancies in 10 businesses, drawing the participation of more than 500 people, 200 of whom were through job interviews. Earlier, a job fair in Van Ninh District had provided job opportunities for 150 people.
 
Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids & Social Affairs has focused on the implementation of measures to support the development labor market and job creation in Khanh Hoa Province and survey employment demand to provide link between job-seekers and enterprises. The center is taking measures to promote access to labor market information and consultancy to provide more job opportunities; collect information about job vacancies and labor demand to build a database of job demand and resources; establish connection with employers in many ways and provide vocational training support for the out-of-work to assist them in finding stable work, says Van Dinh Tri, Deputy Director of Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids & Social Affairs.
