The forum gathered more than 200 students and educators who came to discuss the role of information technology in society and opportunities for youth employment.  

More than 200 students, teachers and delegates from vocational and high schools gathered in Hanoi on Saturday to discuss the future of work. 

At YouthSpark Live 2018, organized by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), Vietnam Microsoft and Vietnet-ICT, students received support and learned skills to build startups, impress employers and excel in a modern working environment. 

In Vietnam, YouthSpark has for three years been providing computer technology and software development training to more than 100,000 young Vietnamese. With support from VCCI, the project aims to connect job seekers and employees by helping youths find better job opportunities as well as build startups in the context of Industry 4.0.

Changes in technological development will have a huge impact on global enterprises, governments, individuals, as well as the way we live and work, according to VCCI. As a result, the forum aims to bring about opportunities for youths to work with technological applications such as Office 365, Azure, Power BI and AI, for more effective learning. 

The project, "YouthSpark Career Readiness", aims to integrate youths into the labor market by giving various training on working, technological, computer science and business skills. It also provides startups with management skills that can support their young businesses.
