This statement was noted by Mr. Nguyen Tuan Phuong- Director of FPT Software Danang on the visit of more than 200 students of Duy Tan University to FPT Software Danang. Accordingly, Mr. Nguyen Tuan Phuong has seen a lot of job opportunities for IT students but still wondered about the expertise and foreign languages.
“The Industrial Revolution 4.0 is impacting on every aspect of life, changing the way people communicate and manage as well as offering both opportunities but challenges,” he said. “If you know the trend, the opportunity to develop for students in information technology is unlimited”. However, the head of FPT Software Danang also acknowledged that in the future, with the development of technology, a number of manual laborers will disappear and the quality of human resource requirements will increase so students need to prepare to meet the new trend.
