Univer­sity grad­u­ates in no rush to start work

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

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.
