Job pref­er­ences of grad­u­ates chang­ing

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Pref­er­ences of Chi­nese col­lege grad­u­ates for em­ploy­ment have been chang­ing in re­cent years as the coun­try un­der­goes trans­for­ma­tions in its eco­nomic and in­dus­trial struc­ture, a re­cent sur­vey found.

Knowl­edge-in­ten­sive in­dus­tries such as in­for­ma­tion, education and health­care are hir­ing more col­lege grad­u­ates, while la­bor-in­ten­sive ones such as ar­chi­tec­ture and man­u­fac­tur­ing, are los­ing their ap­peal to job hunters, ac­cord­ing to the Col­lege Grad­u­ates’ Em­ploy­ment An­nual Re­port.

The sur­vey polled more than 250,000 col­lege stu­dents who grad­u­ated in 2015.

The re­port, in its eighth year, also found that small and medium-sized pri­vate com­pa­nies and en­ter­prises, as em­ploy­ers, are gain­ing in­creas­ing fa­vor from col­lege grad­u­ates, com­pared with State-owned en­ter­prises or transna­tional coun­ter­parts.

The re­port also said that the em­ploy­ment rate of col­lege grad­u­ates has re­mained com­par­a­tively sta­ble de­spite the slow­ing econ­omy.
