2015 PKU graduate on-campus job fair held

Peking University, March 18, 2015:“I think it is pretty necessary,” said Lau, a graduate student getting his master’s degree this summer, “and I’m glad that we’re provided with such a chance to have face-to-face in-depth communication with so many companies within a day.”


Lau was talking about the 2015 Peking University graduate on-campus job fair held in Peking University Gymnasium, Tuesday morning. More than 170 enterprises and public institutions were invited and thousands of graduates from PKU and other universities were attracted to the fair.


There are companies across various business fields, including culture industry, news and media, energy, manufacture, investment, consulting, insurance, real estate, colleges and universities, academic institutions, local government and law courts related.


Companies try every means to attract talents. Some of them even clearly stated the “major attraction” that Hukou issues would be taken care of by the company, since more and more graduates from all over the country are trying to settle down in the capital for more chances, or at least a better start in their career.


Other companies promised a competitive salary to their potential employees, or a good spot in the first-tier cities, including Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, etc.


Compared with enterprises, universities and academic institutions have higher education background requirements. Doctor degree is the minimum.


An interesting phenomenon is that government bodies seemed to have less attraction to graduates than the enterprises, concerning that Civil Service Examinations are always one of the “biggest-hit of the year” in China.


“It is really a great chance for both parties involved,” said a recruiter from insurance industry, “this visiting-service kind of job fair helps us know each other better, and graduates can also learn more about what is required for and will be gained from certain position.”


“Graduates need to learn more about the industry and what it is really about,” said the recruiter, “some of them are, I personally feel, kind of aimless–they either are not very sure about the position and the industry, or just look for jobs within their internship experience. They ought to do more homework in advance, or the employers may think they are not initiative enough.”


An employment policy information desk was also set up in the hall, “We want to provide graduates with assistance they need, and try to help them as much as we can. Hope they will develop a deliberate plan and come into their proper future careers.”


Lee, a junior from School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science, was strolling among the booths with some of his friends, “we are not graduating this year, but we’d like to find out what is going on, and lay out an anchor to whirlwind.” He also wished that more Fortune Global 500 corporations to be invited to the job fair next year so that graduates will have a wider range of choices and get better jobs.
