The COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid development of digital technology have deeply impacted on the socioeconomics of not only the world, but also Vietnam. Within in the range of this impact, the job market and job trends are drastically changing as some jobs are at risk of downsizing or transferring of personnel, while many others are brimming with potential. Therefore, catching these trends and early career counseling have become one of the top matters of interest among students, and parents in recent years.

According to a McKinsey Global Institute report, by 2030, 375 million jobs will disappear as a result of technology-enhanced businesses. However, some jobs stand the test of time and continue to meet society’s ever-rising demands, especially technology-related jobs. Almost every field of our life is undergoing a robust digitalization process to adapt to the digital era’s accelerated changes.

So which job trend will emerge in the future? How will the job market change? Which major should one pursue to meet the market’s demand in this new context? All of these questions will be answered by Mrs. Ngo Thi Ngoc Lan, Mr. Chris Jeffery, and Mr. Fraser Harrison in the talk show “Ride the Wave of Emerging Job Opportunities in The Digital Era”.

The talk show focuses on the two main topics: An overview of the job market, and necessary specialized skills for students to master to be a good fit for their jobs; and job trends and training in Computer Science and Technology.
