British Council – China Employability Workshops
The British Council are running China Employability workshops which will ‘give Chinese students an insight into career opportunities available to them in China; help Chinese students to better understand employer’s needs as well as the current job market in China, and how to get ahead of the competition by enhancing their understanding of the job market’.
HR executives from major employers in China have been invited to give an overview of the competitive job market in China, talk about various aspects of recruitment from the employer’s side and share job opportunities with Chinese students. Students will also have opportunities to raise questions they might have about job hunting and career development in China. The employers are Microsoft, 58.com, Nokia Siemens Network, Nestle, Deloitte, Hay Group.
