In fact, the Covid-19 pandemic has stalled many production and business activities, but cannot stop the demand for financial transactions. Banking is an essential field, so even in times of complicated pandemics and social distancing, banks are still able to maintain face-to-face operations.

Moreover, the bank has many operations performed on the system, along with the promotion of digital transformation and automation activities, so it is less and less dependent on physical channels, direct transactions, etc.

“The positions being recruited in the banking sector focus on high-quality human resources, but it is difficult to find and requires a lot of investment due to the competition in the whole market,” said Ms. Lan.

Deputy General Director cum Head of Technology Division of a joint stock commercial bank shared: “Although we are willing to pay significant sums of money to hunt for candidates, the source of candidates in the field of digital transformation of the banking industry is very high limited, both in quantity and quality.

In terms of quality, very few candidates have the experience to apply the most advanced technologies. In terms of quantity, the bank has a need to recruit a large number in a short time, but the number of qualified candidates is not enough.
