Tsinghua University launched a four-day largest annual campus job fair for graduates on Tuesday.
More than 300 companies from 22 provinces and cities across China, including the China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation, the China North Industries Group Corporation Limited, the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation Limited, Meituan, ZTE Corporation and SenseTime, are participating in the 2021 Tsinghua Job Fair, which is being held both online and offline.
Nearly 100 employers, including Xinhua News Agency and North Industry Co., Ltd. will recruit international students in this year’s event. In order to make things easier for visiting international students, high-quality services such as bilingual publicity, bilingual consultation, and an online bilingual communication system, as well as bilingual signs, have been put into place at the job fair.
The job fair is also hosting nearly 80 alumni enterprises, including Vicino, Meituan and Iqiyi, to participate in the fair to attract talents, encourage and support the development of alumni enterprises, and provide high-quality jobs for graduates.
The participating companies are offering more than 8,000 job positions to graduates at the job fair.
Tsinghua is the first university to host a 2021 campus recruitment fair among all the universities across China.
While the offline venue of the job fair has been set up at the Career Development Center on the Tsinghua campus, job-seeking graduates can also access the job fair online via career.tsinghua.edu.cn.
The job fair is divided into seven industry sessions: 1. Manufacturing, 2. Finance; 3. Cultural and Academic; 4. Informational Technology; 5. Infrastructure Construction; 6. Enterprises and Public Institutions; and 7. Online mutual selection.
The first day of the job fair on Tuesday attracted a large number of graduates.
Qiming Sun, a Ph.D. graduate from the Department of Engineering Physics, will go to work at CNNC North Nuclear Fuel Components Co., Ltd in Baotou, Inner Mongolia. “It was my original intention to do professional work on the frontier line of the industry,” he said.
Tengjiao Wang, a Ph.D. graduate from the Department of Electronics, will join Huawei’s “Top Minds” Program upon his graduation and work on research into post-5G and 6G wireless communication technologies.
Hasan Mohammad Hasibul, a graduate in the Industrial Engineering Department and the IMEM program of Tsinghua University from Bangladesh, hopes to find a suitable job at the job fair.
“I hope to find a job that can help me contribute to the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative, as my country is located at the intersection of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road,” he said.
Last year, despite the pandemic, Tsinghua was one of the first universities in the country to move job fairs online, and held a large-scale virtual job session in collaboration with 126 colleges and universities in Hubei Province. In the spring of 2020, 87 virtual job fairs and six mutual-selection events were held, attracting more than 1,100 employers and recommending 800 students for suitable positions. Likewise, Tsinghua created “Careers Online”, to offer new career service ways to its students.
The job fair will conclude on March 19.
