Shaoxing City of Zhejiang Province kicked off a national talent recruitment program in Shanghai over the weekend to enhance the city's development.

Starting from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shaoxing city officials will go to more than 200 universities in more than 30 cities in China to organize job fairs, give briefings on related policies, and recruit outstanding talent.

After the job fairs, the Shaoxing government will invite students who are interested in working in the city to visit its enterprises, industrial parks and innovation platforms.

It will also offer up to 1,500 yuan (US$218) in transportation subsidies and free accommodation for graduating students who travel to Shaoxing for interviews.

In Shanghai, more than 190 enterprises — from industries such as manufacturing, textile, high-end equipment, architecture, new material, health care, modern services, digital information and education — showed up at the job fair held on Saturday afternoon at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

They were offering more than 6,800 jobs, including about 640 requiring PhD degrees and 1,900 requiring masters degrees.

“Shanghai has a lot of universities and research institutions, cultivating high-end talent every year, who are in demand in Shaoxing,” said Luo Jihong, deputy director of the Shaoxing Human Resources and Social Security Bureau. “By starting the national recruitment program from Shanghai, we also wish to establish long-term cooperation with Shanghai and make it the frontier for Shaoxing’s talent seeking efforts.”
