Little luck for graduates at job fair

MORE than 50 German companies jointly held a job fair in Pudong yesterday, but did not find many qualified candidates in the thousand or so job applicants, most of them fresh graduates with no experiences or solid career plans.

Han Qi, a human resources manager with Brose China Co, told Shanghai Daily that many applicants just blindly -distributed their resumes and didn't even know what job they were going for. "We're unlikely to hire these people," she said.

Han said some of the graduates seemed too confident in themselves but that "their abilities don't match their expectations."

Zhang Yanzhi, a graduate from Shanghai Ocean University, felt disappointed and complained that jobs for young graduates were scarce. Zhu Weiqing, a man who just completed his education in Australia, felt the same.

The fair, held twice a year at the German Center in the Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, offered more than 500 positions.
