Online boost for students seeking jobs

LOCAL education authorities are still not optimistic about employment this year for university and college graduates, and is trying to boost their prospects by holding a series of online recruitment events.

"We are offering a professional and authoritative online platform to help more graduates find jobs via the Internet," said Pan Guojian, an official with Shanghai Career Guidance Center for Graduates.

An online recruitment platform will be held every month and involve various companies looking for students of different majors. Local students may visit and log on with their ID number to check job information.

The Website will also offer an opportunity for graduates to consult education authorities and experts about employment policies and advice.

Pan said that although the employment situation this year was better than last year, they could not be too optimistic due to the aftermath of the global financial crisis.

Pan said they were expecting to raise the employment rate to last year's 90.63 percent by September.

However, that high rate would be the result of the great number of students signing short-term contracts to work at the World Expo. But after that event, these students would have to look for new jobs again.

Even so, Pan encouraged more graduates to work at the Expo, as they could avoid the current employment pressure and also gain valuable experience vital for their future jobs.
