Vietnam It Salary Guide Quarter 1-2022


We agree that the Vietnamese economy was through another challenging year in 2021, while the COVID-19 outbreak caused a halt to trade and manufacturing. Nevertheless, Vietnam has been seen as a bright spot on the global economic map as a result of the successful virus containment. Thanks to the persistent efforts of the Government and the people of Vietnam, life is gradually returning to its original trajectory, and the economic sector is rapidly recovering from its initial effects.

The past year also marked a new era in Vietnam's economy as technology plays an essential role in maintaining the continuity of economic activities. Various industries use technology to improve their ability to do business. More businesses embrace digital transformation and upgrade their IT infrastructure, including software and hardware. Organizations are willing to invest in technology to protect their data from cyber-attacks while increasing employee productivity. On the other hand, many candidates prefer to work for a company with technology that allows them to work from home. Aside from system integration, IoT, Al, cloud computing, big data, and cybersecurity, 5G is also a hot topic in this industry.
