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.
At the beginning of the talk show, Mr. Chris Jeffery – BUV Chief Academic Officer will give an overview of the world’s job market through reports, data, and his opinion of the world’s recruitment trends. Also, together with Mr. Fraser Harrison, they will share how an international education establishment like BUV sees the market alongside how it updates its majors and curricula to help students adapt to the digital era’s changes.
Afterwards, Mrs. Ngo Thi Ngoc Lan will provide information on the changes in Vietnam’s job market in the digital era through the eyes of an expert recruiter. Through Navigos Search North Vietnam Regional Director’s talk, young people will get a hold of recruitment trends and promising career paths in the future.
Apart from their general assessment, the experts will also advise pupils and students on necessary skills in the digital era to meet the manpower need in Vietnam as well as the world, especially in highly-specialized fields of computer science and technology such as cybersecurity, cloud computing, or game design and development.
