5. What do you think are the biggest challenges for this sector in the future?
The year 2023 has been experiencing economic fluctuations globally, making the outlook for the
global labor market uncertain and affecting Vietnam.

Vietnam’s labor market in the context of prolonged and overlapping impacts such as the Covid-19
pandemic, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and the decline in world aggregate demand have
caused many businesses to experience a decline in revenue.

Hundreds of thousands of workers had their working hours reduced, lost their jobs, and their lives
were affected. Pressure from businesses to lay off workers creates a strong shift of labor from the
industrial and construction sectors to the service sector and other sectors. The outlook for the global
labor market in 2023 has not yet recovered to pre-pandemic levels, remaining very uncertain.
In the current volatile market context, Candidates have work experience, adaptability, problem
solving, collaboration skills, analytical thinking, creative thinking, resilience, flexibility and agility are
prioritized by businesses for recruitment.

Headhunt Vietnam will need to build a more professional staff in the process of working with
businesses and searching for candidates. Follow the requirements of the desired Enterprise, build a
candidate screening process that meets the candidate’s work experience, analytical and adaptive
skills. Headhunt Vietnam is not just a service provider, moreover, Headhunt Vietnam wants to
become a bridge that brings solutions, providing businesses with the most suitable candidates, and
vice versa Headhunt Vietnam wants to provide candidates with the right environment work
