HÀ NỘI — Many students in Việt Nam are taking advantage of Tết festival break to take on part-time jobs to learn soft skills, gain professional experience, and earn extra money.

Mai Phương, a student of Hà Nội College of Pharmacy, said that each year she finds a different job to have more experience. 

This year Phương worked as a seasonal cashier at a supermarket.

“My mother usually prepares everything for Tết by herself from shopping to cleaning the house before the festival. So I usually look for a seasonal job before the holidays to earn more money. It’s not too high but enough to spend without asking for money from my parents,” Phương told Tin Tức (News) online newspaper. 

Vũ Quang Thành, deputy director of the Hà Nội Employment Service Centre, said the demand for seasonal workers increased at the end of the year.

Many businesses recruit students to do part-time jobs at supermarkets or trade centres as they are busy for their year-end sale season.

On social networks, it is not difficult for students to find part-time jobs.

The newspaper reported that many employees working in a supermarket in Artemis Trade Centre, Hà Nội’s Lê Trọng Tấn Street, are students working part-time jobs. Most of them are second and third-year students.

Lưu Bạch Kim, a student from University of Social Sciences and Humanities, who works as an employee to record customer orders, said: “Every year I go home early with my family as Tết approaches. However, this year, due to difficulties arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to find a job at the supermarket, rather than returning to my hometown early like other students.”

“The nature of my work is not too hard, but I have to help others because the supermarket is crowded during Tết. I feel satisfactory with the extra job even though I am very busy on pre-Tết days.”

In addition to having more money, seasonal jobs at supermarkets also help students learn soft skills.

Thu, a student at the University of Industrial Technology and Economics, applied to work as a seasonal saleswoman. 

The job has brought many interesting experiences and is an opportunity for her to learn.

“I find a job to have extra money. At the workplace, I am also trained in skills such as customer care and sales. My communication skill has also improved more,” said Thu. — VnExpress News
