Thailand-based tech recruitment platform GetLinks saw Vietnam as a major market that will require a great deal of high-tech talent to facilitate its turn to Industry 4.0.

According to Djoann Fal, co-founder and CEO of GetLinks, Vietnam, an active country working on modernisation and Industry 4.0, is in huge need of high-tech labour force – which the company can provide.

Djoann added that Vietnam has a strong community of enterprises and startups and is also home for many multinational groups which are always in need of high-tech labour force.

“We will bring our wealth of experience and knowledge on providing qualified high-tech labour force to both domestic enterprises and international companies in Vietnam,” he said.

Apart from providing high-tech labour force, GetLinks will also connect Vietnam based and foreign universities to ensure a supply of graduate students and will also organise training courses for students before introducing them to recruiters.

GetLinks, the platform and ecosystem that connects tech talents with opportunities across Asia, has had a massive year in 2018 when it successfully secured investment from Australia’s SEEK Group and Alibaba Hong Kong Entrepreneur Fund.

The Thailand-based tech recruitment service currently has more than 500,000 profiles of developers, designers, and digital marketers on its platform and caters to over 3,000 companies operating in six major tech hubs in Asia, including Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, India, and South Korea.

Founded in 2015, GetLinks was developed with a vision to redefine the future of work, by creating an adaptive work community.

It has been focusing on creating an online adaptive talent platform that upskills employees while providing them opportunities with leading tech companies across Asia.

During its three years of operation, GetLinks has established a community of talents across the tech world, ranging from developers, designers, and digital marketers to operation managers and sales leaders.

Its priority at the moment is scaling up in existing markets by acquiring candidates through a series of networking activities, including organising events, producing content, as well as supporting digital transformation and talent mobility. “Ultimately, we want to build an adaptive talent workforce, and encourage the world’s best to help build a Silicon Valley in Asia,” continued Djoann.

To date, GetLinks has been involved in over 130 events, reaching out to over 200,000 attendees region-wide, including Saigon Tech Startup Fest held at the Independence Palace in March 2016, endorsed by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam.

Some of the companies who have used GetLinks’ services include giant tech brands such as Alibaba Group, Traveloka, Baidu, Grab, Google, Line, Agoda, SingTel, Accenture, and Garena.
