The first IT Job Fair recruited for a total of a thousand positions. They each had a booth where they introduced themselves and their products, giving students a clearer idea of what jobs were available and how they could become candidates for future careers in those companies.  
 
DTU Vice Provost, Dr. Nguyen Huu Phu , explained that a great concern and issue at many universities now is to find ways to improve IT education standards and graduate better - qualified students, in order to satisfy the increasingly exacting industry demands of the multinational corporations setting up branches in Vietnam this year.
 
More and more of those IT companies are facing a shortage of professionals in 2019, with 53% of the 69 IT companies in Vietnam needing from 10% to 30% more staff. The demand this year is up 30% to 50%, and 87% of employers want to recruit 50% more programmers. 
 
According to the 2018 report of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization on the digital economy in Vietnam, the country will need a million IT professionals in 2020, mostly in Artificial intelligence, Cloud storage, Virtual reality, Augmented Reality and Blockchain, as well as the Internet of Things, e-Commerce, business processes and IT outsourcing.
 
The university has always had a policy of using IT to spearhead its educational strategy,” said a DTU representative. “As well as assembling a team of expert lecturers and investing in modern facilities and equipment, DTU collaborates with Carnegie Mellon, one of the four leading American IT universities, to implement advanced international-standard programs in Software Engineering, Information Networks, and Network Security.
