Japan’s Framgia Inc. and the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) will hold an annual jobs fair for IT and Japanese-language students in Hanoi from June 22 to 24.

The fair will see the presence of four Japanese IT companies seeking candidates for 10-12 positions. Representative from the Japanese companies will present their recruitment requirements on June 22 at the university and students will join group interviews and then single interview with each of the companies over the next two days at Framgia’s office.

Figures from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry show that Japan is short of some 100,000 engineers in fields such as information security, cloud computing, and mobile technology. The country also lacks 600,000 technology engineers in AI, Big Data and the Internet of Things, and Robotics. More than ten Vietnamese software companies have investments in Japan.

With a philosophy of “Using ICT as a foundation to create breakthroughs for the world”, since 2014 Framgia has cooperated with three leading ICT universities in Vietnam on training and supporting under-graduates to find employment in Japan.

Mr. Kazunari Fujimoto, Director of Framgia's Joint Training Program, said that the driving force for Asia’s development is the contribution of all regional countries to ICT education and training. “We expect that the education system we are implementing at these universities in Vietnam will be a great step forward in the globalization path Vietnam and Japan are pursuing,” he said.

HUST is one of the three universities Framgia is cooperating with for the first time to train high-skilled IT human resources for Japan. Framgia has also participated in other activities such as job fairs and held dialogues on sharing experience about working in Japan.

In 2016, the joint training program involved two universities: the University of Science and Technology at the University of Da Nang, and University of Engineering and Technology at the Vietnam National University in Hanoi. The program has trained nearly 800 students and Framgia expects to join with other countries to reach 1,000 students, or 1,000 future engineers.

Framgia specializes in designing and developing applications, games running on smartphone platforms, social networking platforms, and producing and developing website applications.

The cooperative program has helped enhance the capacity of Vietnamese IT engineers and address the shortage of IT personnel in Japan.
