Students unearth new careers

LOCAL funeral parlors and cemeteries signed contracts of employment with 108 newly graduated college students today. The students will receive several months' training.

The students were among 3,220 participating in a funeral industry job fair in March. But most pulled out or were not satisfactory, the Shanghai Funeral and Interment Association said.

Han Rui, who has just graduated from the East China Normal University, had the highest academic qualification - a master's degree majoring in forklore. She will start training in the Yishan Funeral Parlor in Minhang District soon.

"I found a sense of belonging in the industry," she said.

Yishan said it had recruited 13 new staff. They will all try different aspects of funeral parlor work over the next six months, such as make-up, cremation and receiving families before being permanently assigned.
"We hope the newcomers can adapt to the work here as soon as possible," said a human resource official with the parlor who only defined herself as Ni.
