After   10   years,   the  first  generation   of   VietAbroader  has   matured   and  been   heavily   involved  in  both  the  local  and  international  workforce.  As  globalization  progresses,   we   realize  both  the   challenges   in   the  Vietnam  labor  market  as   well   as   the   endless   opportunities  for  our  bright  students.         As  such,  we  have  continuously  expanded  our  activities  to  other  fronts,  including  the   Business   and   Career   branch,   which   culminated   in   our   first   Career   Conference   in   New  York,  USA  in  2010.  Four  years  later,  we  brought  our  conference  home  for  the   first  time  with  VietAbroader  Career  Conference  (VACC)  2014,  attracting  more  than   6,000  interested  individuals,  selecting  250  qualified  participants,  inviting  more  than   30  profiled  guest  speakers  across  industries  to  coach  and  share  their  experiences.   VACC   2015   is   going   to   carry   on   the   legacy   with   advances,   from   a   richer   program   content  and  a  larger  network  of  guest  speakers,  to  more  intimate  interactions  with   speakers  and  greater  number  of  top-­‐notch  and  leading  participating  SME  companies   and  big  corporations.
