During an online meeting with authorities, many Vietnamese students who are studying abroad showed curiosity about job opportunities in Vietnam after graduation.
The meeting, held on March 12 between Vietnamese students studying in foreign countries and representatives from the Central Committee of the Vietnam Students’ Association, the Ministry of Education and Training and the Ministry of Home Affairs, drew the participation of Vietnamese students in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Poland, the Republic of Korea, Japan, China, Singapore, Laos, Cambodia and Australia.
During the two hour exchange, most of the students said that they wanted to return to contribute to the development of the country through volunteer activities.
Nguyen Xuan Thanh, a student in South Korea’s Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), posed questions about ministries’ and agencies’ policies to attract those studying abroad to come return to the country.
Doan Duc Hao, deputy head of the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Department of Youth Affairs, said the ministry hopes to lure at least 1,000 outstanding Vietnamese graduates from abroad to work at state-owned agencies and in the armed forces.
However, age regulations will be applied. For instance, new graduates must not be over 25 years old and those with master no older than 28. The age limit for doctors is from 32-35.
The Vietnamese Students’ Association in Strasbourg, France, proposed that the Committee of the Vietnam Students’ Association increase the dissemination of information on job opportunities and policies for Vietnamese students in foreign countries.
In response, a representative from the Vietnam Students’ Association said that more information will be made available starting this year.
Regarding the question on organising volunteer activities for students from Poland and Germany, Phong said that students who are studying abroad can carry out voluntary activities in the places where they study or live or they can contact Vietnamese agencies to join activities. He added that many students take part in volunteer programmes in Vietnam during their holidays.
According to Phong, the Central Committee of the Vietnam Students’ Association set up the National Voluntary Centre to connect individuals and agencies through volunteer programmes.
