From now to December 31, the Center of Overseas Labor (Colab) at the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, will recruit more than 500 candidates to attend a technical intern training program in Japan, conducted by the International Manpower Development Organization, Japan (IM Japan).

Selected candidates will perform practical work in Japan for three to five years and receive a monthly salary of VND25-30 million ($1,075-$1,290).

What differentiates this program is that, after completing the technical intern program and returning home, interns can establish their own businesses with starting capital of VND120-200 million ($5,160-$8,600), paid by the government of the interns’ home country and allowing them to utilize the knowledge, technical skills, and expertise gained in Japan.

They will also receive a pension amounting to VND80 million ($3,440) depending on their years of work, and will be supported in finding new employment. This feature of IM Japan comfortably surpasses the general labor market.

Candidates must be 20-30 years old (from 2019 it will be 18-30 years old), male, a high school graduate, over 1.6 meters tall, and be able to work abroad. Those who would like to apply can download the application form at the website colab.gov.vn and can send their CV directly to the Center of Overseas Labor, 1 Trinh Hoai Duc, Dong Da District, Hanoi. (Tel: (024) 7303 0199).

Interns will gain a huge number of benefits and support, including Japanese language tuition fees and flight tickets. During their internship in Japan, they will also have the chance to join management training courses on full scholarships.

The Technical Intern Training program is a non-profit program under a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs and the International Manpower Development Organization, Japan.

This program is suitable for those who have faced difficulties but never given up and still hope for a bright future. Some 1,000 candidates are selected annually. IM Japan has welcomed more than 50,000 foreign interns, and the Center of Overseas Labor has sent more than 6,000 interns to Japan.
