Software engineers in demand, paid high salaries: survey

Of 10 jobs it surveyed, information technology, especially software, was among the top paying professions.

An intern in software received a monthly salary of 3-5 million (US$127-212), that compared with VND2.5-4 million in media and advertising and VND3-4 million in accounting.

Software engineers with one to three years of experience were paid VND15-30 million, and got VND30-50 million if they had over five years’ experience.

IT workers with similar experience received VND13.8-25 million and VND30-50 million.

Work experience thus significantly affected salaries in the industry.

At the management level, chief technology officers got the highest salaries of VND60-142 million.

This compared with VND49.5-90 million for human resources directors, VND60.5-120 million for sales directors and VND50.5-105 million for chief financial officers.

Vu Nhat Anh, co-founder of TopCV, said software workers ranked third in terms of most recruited, but also second in terms of most difficult to find and retain.

TopCV’s survey used a quantitative statistical method based on 300,000 job postings, 3,000 employees and public data in the media. It was done over three months until March.
