“Free­lancers can pay their own so­cial se­cu­rity and they can work only two days a week if they want. Com­pared with work­ing reg­u­larly, some stu­dents pre­fer free­dom.”

A job fair for re­cent col­lege grad­u­ates was held on Satur­day. How­ever, the num­ber of job hun­ters had de­creased 80 per­cent from last year. The Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mis­sion told the Shang­hai Morn­ing Post that the num­ber of grad­u­ates in­tend­ing to work as free­lancers has in­creased to 4 per­cent from last year’s 2 per­cent.
