Pudong looking hard for financial talent

PUDONG New Area's Lujiazui Financial Center is combing six Chinese cities in search of talented financial postgraduates.

It's the largest such recruitment drive since Shanghai staked plans to become a global financial hub.

Twenty-seven financial institutions, including banking, insurance, stock and fund companies, are looking to fill at least 136 openings for such jobs as risk controller and financial engineer.

The number of opening is growing, organizers said.

Starting in Shanghai, the drive will go to another six cities around the country and hold job fairs in 18 prestigious universities including Peking University and Tsinghua University in the next two months.

"The drive is to expand the influence of Lujiazui financial zone among university students all over the country and attract more talents to work in Shanghai," said Wang Dehong, an official with Oracle Bay which developed the recruitment drive.

The drive began on Friday at the city's Fudan University and arrived at Jiao Tong University yesterday.

The Fudan event drew positive reviews.

"Every company has received hundreds of resumes," said Zhang Ye, a PR official with Oracle Bay.

"Most of the applicants have reached their standards and some are even better than the companies' qualifications."
