Qualified applicants can find different jobs available in sales, front office, conference, entertainment, accounting, housekeeping, information technology, security and other positions for the project’s departments based in HCMC and at its site in Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

The applicants will be able to submit their qualifications and be interviewed at the career event for their positions. There will also be sessions where existing MGM team members will share their experiences within the company with potential future colleagues to ensure they understand about the MGM Grand Ho Tram team.

John Shigley, president and chief operating officer of MGM Grand Ho Tram, said in a statement released on Tuesday, “As we edge ever closer to our opening early next year, we are now setting about ramping up our team, with over 2,000 jobs available at our new Ho Tram home.”

The career day is one of the MGM Grand Ho Tram’s mass recruitment that will take place in HCMC, Vung Tau City as well other locations in Ba Ria-Vung Tau, where the resort is based. Management of the company will also visit almost 20 universities, colleges and academic institutions nationwide to look for the talent to form its founding team.

The two-hotel-wing MGM Grand Ho Tram is part of the US$4.2 billion Ho Tram Strip project in the southern province. The first wing of the resort in operation in early 2013 will feature 541 luxury rooms and suites.

MGM Grand Ho Tram represents the first of five 5-star resorts at the Ho Tram Strip, which is being developed by Asian Coast Development (Canada) Ltd. (ACDL) under its wholly owned Vietnamese subsidiary Ho Tram Project Company Limited (HTP). MGM Hospitality is appointed by HTP under a management agreement which sees it function as the operator of the first of these resorts.

ACDL began work on phase one of the Ho Tram Strip project in May 2008. However, this stage was hit by the global financial turbulence before it was put back on track in October 2010, which leads to the delayed opening in early 2013 instead of the previous schedule in 2011.

The Ho Tram development comprises of 1,100 luxury rooms, suites and villas, convention space, entertainment areas, nine restaurants, one spa, three outdoor swimming pools, a beach club, four bars and lounges, a retail shopping area, and a golf course designed by golf legend Greg Norman.
