Grad students do well at sorting out futures

ABOUT 60 percent of this year's graduating students have landed a job, been accepted by a graduate school or signed up for overseas studies as of yesterday, according to education authorities.

"It's higher than last year," said Wang Xiping, director of the Shanghai Center for Students Affairs.

The city has about 168,000 college students who graduated this year, 10,000 more than last year.

"The economy has bounced back and students are finding more job opportunities," she said.

The figure will change as many students are still looking for jobs or negotiating contracts, Wang added.

At the start of this month, 44.38 percent of new graduates had secured either a job or spot in graduate school, 6 percent higher than the previous year, Xue Mingyang, deputy director of the Shanghai Education Commission said yesterday in a meeting with delegates of the city's top political advisory body.

About 90 percent of last year's college graduates had secured either a job, started a business or been accepted by a graduate school.
