The manpower export market was lackluster for more than two years amid the adverse impact of the COVID-19 epidemic. As international flights have been reopened and the Japanese Government eased the entry policy from February 2022, interns are having more opportunities to seek jobs in Japan as they wish.

International Media & Finance Corporation (MIF), a member of Sao Mai Group, which specializes in sending laborers to Japan, has greatly estimated and trained high-class human resources, both knowledge and skills, to work well in Japan.

Positive signals in manpower export

As other countries and territories reopened their borders to welcome foreign workers, the labor export market is seeing positive signals of recovery and is forecasted to develop strongly in the coming time. According to the Department of Overseas Labor (DOLAB) under the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), many consistent measures are being implemented to realize the goal of sending 90,000 Vietnamese workers to work abroad this year.

For example, the prospect was brightened in the first quarter of 2022 when Vietnam sent more than 2,500 workers to work abroad, including 612 workers to Japan. MIF Company was expected to complete the target of training about 300 interns for this potential market. The company is licensed by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs to directly supply manpower to Japanese unions without any other intermediaries involved.

Moreover, MIF has a representative branch in Tokyo that acts as an information liaison for both Vietnam and Japan, as a help desk to answer questions and promptly solve matters faced by trainees in Japan. Therefore, they are always confident, comfortable and assured to work hard to achieve success.

The Japanese Embassy highly appreciates training quality as expected by recruiters in Japan

To build a beautiful image of Vietnamese workers in the eyes of local authorities and people, MIF Company accepts general regulations on labor export and training before sending workers abroad and gradually forms a ready standard workforce for potential markets such as Taiwan, Malaysia, and Singapore and Hungary.

DOLAB Deputy Director Nguyen Gia Liem said that training and equipping workers with knowledge before going to work abroad is specified in the law on Vietnamese workers leaving the country for contractual work in foreign countries. Therefore, foreign language training, vocational training and soft skills training for workers is mandatory.

The paradox of redundant experts, and insufficient workers?

Unemployed people totaled more than 1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, characterized by excessive experts and insufficient workers. Therefore, manpower export is a solution to this dilemma. This move helps improve people's living standards and increase forex reserves for the country and provide jobs for many workers 

The Japanese labor market has recently changed a lot, tending to look for high-quality workers, apply strict requirements and require more professional intern training. Currently, in addition to learning Japanese language and building up knowledge, trainees are provided with a "high-quality training program" lectured by masters/doctors or higher specialists.

On their career path, young people today are deeply aware of preferential policies and benefits and more are registering for overseas work in the hope that they will be able to change their career path, improve their virtues and competences to have better incomes later on. Not only making money from manpower export, MIF Company also builds a comprehensively integrated curriculum consisting of knowledge, skills and languages, enabling trainees to find appropriate jobs at Sao Mai Group after they complete their overseas work contracts and return home.

On April 22, 2022, MIF saw off nine members before departing the country to realize their long-cherished dream for a better life

Having effective contacts with more than 20 trade unions in Japan, the company has a wide range of occupations for trainees such as nursing, mechanics, garment, agriculture, food, electronics, packaging, seafood processing, carpentry, welding, and solar equipment installation, restaurant and hotel.

Specially, with an attractive monthly income of VND35 - 50 million for eights hour of work a day, five days a week, candidates will be provided with specific information about the labor market, recruitment requirements, salary levels, opportunities, working environment and industry by the company's consultants to choose the best occupation for their competence, strengths, interests and aspirations.

Each country has its own distinct cultural identity but we still encounter cultural similarities between Vietnam and Japan, enabling both sides to build a solid foundation for closer cooperation.

Accordingly, MIF Company aims to train in cultural identity to enable its trainees to quickly adapt to and integrate into the new environment and easily build an image of competitive standard Vietnamese workers on the world market.
