In recent years, besides paying attention toimproving the quality of training, universities and colleges in the provincehave also focused on investigating the labor demand of enterprises and society.Thereby, the universities and colleges "have shaken hands" withenterprises to turn what they have to training what the social needs; say “no”to substandard training, not meet social needs. Simultaneously, therelationship with businesses has been strengthened to send students to practiceproduction and find out the recruitment needs of businesses. On the other hand,the universities invite qualified and experienced professionals who are workingat enterprises to give lectures in order to implement the motto "trainingassociated with enterprise needs".

Facing the fact that graduates have usuallybeen unemployed or not worked properly as trained has been more and more; inaddition to actively changing the training tactics to meet the strictrequirements of employers, universities and colleges in the province have beentrying to create jobs for students after graduation. In 2017, nearly 90% of the97 graduates of the nursing faculty of Phu Yen Medical Collegefound jobs soon after graduation.

This, in turn, has helped students pass the othercandidates in the job application process.

For technical groups, one of the measuresthat universities and colleges have been applying is to collaborate closelywith businesses and companies in the training process. To carry out this task,in addition to organizing vocational activities for students, the schools alsovisit businesses to understand and grasp the labor demand, on the basis ofwhich the schools and businesses exchange to have oriented training response.Prof. Dr. Tran Kim Quyen, Rector of Tuy Hoa Industrial College, let known:"Over the past years, the college has regularly joined hands with many companiesin training and supplying human resources. Businesses also provideopportunities for students to visit, practice and work at their facility duringtheir studies, as well as after graduation.
