All other business sectors except food and beverages, transport and tourism saw demand for human resources rise in the second quarter, employment firm Adecco Vietnam reported.

Despite the fourth wave of Covid-19, the number of jobs created during the quarter jumped by 60 percent driven by e-commerce, fin-tech and sourcing liaison, it said in its latest quarterly labor market report.

Covid infections were reported in some industrial parks, but sectors such as electronics, engineering and chemicals were engaged in headhunting, it said.

Coping better with the pandemic than last year, most enterprises switched to online recruitment, Nguyen Thu Ha, director of Adecco’s Hanoi office, said.

Nguyen Hoang Thanh Chuong, associate director of its HCMC recruitment business, said most of the hiring is on schedule, with only 10 percent being delayed.

Le Nguyen Ngoc Thanh, director of the company’s HCMC office, said online recruitment is somewhat difficult since recruiters find it hard to observe applicants’ body language and response to corporate culture and environment while some interviewees feel uncomfortable and lack confidence before a camera, which could lead to interviewers’ misjudgment.
