University graduates in no rush to start work
A record 7.65 million students are about to graduate and enter China’s job market in July.
But this year’s graduates are not in much of a hurry to find a job and seem more interested in finding the right position and on keeping their options open, according to a survey by a human resources company.
The report by 51job noted that past generations of students were more eager to find work quickly than the current batch.
51job conducted the survey among undergraduates and those taking master’s degrees and PhDs. Students from 227 universities were interviewed. All will finish their studies in July.
Among the job seekers, 43.3 percent said they had already received and accepted job offers. Only 6.7 percent of the respondents said they have, so far, failed to receive a job interview or are worried about getting one, according to the survey.
