The online platform is built by leading experts in the IT industry with the aim of providing an information system on IT career paths and equipping future human resources with essential skills for the new era of the industry.

Digital Workforce, sponsored by USAID and MPI, is one of the series of activities to support Vietnam with its national strategy for the 4th Industrial Revolution by 2030.

At the workshop “Future of jobs in digital economy”

Through the platform, people can have overviews of hundreds of professional positions in the IT industry, a distinct promotion path for each job position with corresponding income levels; required skills and certifications related to each position, as well as recommended prestigious training institutions in the industry; latest news related to job opportunities and professional knowledge, providing diverse perspectives to help young people in building their own career development process.

Speaking at the event, NIC Director Vu Quoc Huy said that in the past time, NIC coordinated with three reputable human resources companies in Vietnam - Navigos/Vietnamworks, TopCV, and JobHopin - and collaborated with USAID WISE to jointly build the digital human resource platform - one of the first platforms to provide detailed information about personnel in the field of information and communication technology.

He said the platform will bring the most general knowledge about the job market, thereby orienting and creating a career development trend for young people in the future. Employers can also adjust and use labor resources effectively and appropriately in response to fluctuations in the labor market.

Phan Vinh Quang, Head of the USAID WISE research team, said that in the national digital transformation roadmap, the Prime Minister approved the project "Raising awareness, popularizing skills and developing human resources for national digital transformation by 2025, with a vision to 2030,” which affirms the Government's attention to digital human resources in the coming period.

At the workshop, experts and speakers from recruitment agencies and technology companies discussed issues of concerns including how new technologies will change the job and labor markets and young workforce’s preparation to adapt to these needs and changes.
