A job fair will be held in Beijing on Nov 16 for Chinese postgraduates who studied abroad, Bai Zhangde, director of the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange said in a news conference on Friday.
Aiming to lure more Chinese talent to come back after studying overseas, the fair had been held twice as a platform for communication between returned talent and domestic enterprises, Bai said.
Compared with the two previous fairs, Bai said, this time the fair, to be held at Empark Grand Hotel on Nov 16, will gather more prominent enterprises and institutes in China. The number is estimated to exceed 100, including China Construction Bank, Lenovo China, BAIC Motor Corp and Capital University of Economics and Business.
"These enterprises and institutes will offer more than 800 posts, covering sectors such as finance, engineering, information technology, the law, culture and education," he added.
Bai also noted that staff members of the center had sent information to more than 7,000 Chinese doctoral students who would like to return or had already returned, inviting them to participate in the fair.
"So I think we will have more participants who have a PhD this time," Bai said.
Representatives from the BAIC Motor Corp, the Capital University of Economics and Business and Lenovo China attended a news conference about the event and said they would welcome returned talented people.
"During the period of the 12th Five Year Plan (2011-15), we plan to hire about 50 returned talented people. We currently have 21," said Xing Qi, director of the human resources department at the Capital University of Economics and Business, adding the institute will seek out returned skilled staff at the fair. "We will provide a good living, teaching and researching environment to the returned talent," she said.
