Vietnam is a country located in Southeast Asia. The official language is Vietnamese.

Below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in Vietnam.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • Vietnam WorksVietnam Works is the best job site in Vietnam. Start your search here and then proceed to the sites below.
  • VietNam Teaching Jobs : is the best teaching job site in Vietnam.

Teaching English

Teaching English is an option (if you are a native English speaker that is). All of the sites below are pretty similar and have a massive amount of teaching English job options. Browse through each of the sites for any English job opportunities in Vietnam. Also, be sure to check out this cool table from the International TEFL academy that shows how much money teachers can expect to make in various countries around the world.

  • VietNam Teaching Jobs : is the best teaching job site in Vietnam.

Other Websites and Blogs

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • Overseas Jobs:  I find that there is often significant overlap between the postings on this site and that of other sites. Nevertheless this site has been around for a while.
  • Go Abroad: I’ve always been a fan of GoAbroad. In fact, on the visa information portion of my website, you will find where I have linked to their global embassies directory. They have a good job portal too.
  • Linkedin: Last but not least, this huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest.

There you have it. The best places to find jobs in Vietnam as a foreigner.
