Jing’an District has launched a campaign to help this year’s college graduates find jobs.

A survey in March found 768 local students would be looking for jobs after graduating this year. The district has invited 27 experts to organize more than 40 lectures on job seeking. In April, it launched a special section on online job-search platform Zhilian Zhaopin for graduating students, attracting 4,380 job seekers, including 2,096 graduating students.

In the new campaign, there will be a weekly jobs fair for graduating students and human resources service companies will be invited to provide jobs, internships and training.

The district will also improve its work in informing students of the latest policies, finding out more job opportunities, inviting experts to give guidance, providing individualized services and sharing case studies to help students find work.

Students living in the district will be able to enjoy subsidies from the district government for internships besides those from the city government. Each graduate will have two mentors for in-depth guidance.

Tang Hong, deputy director of the district’s human resources and social security bureau, said the services will be offered both online and offline throughout the year.

Human resources service company Randstad signed an agreement on Wednesday with the bureau to support the government in helping students with employment.

The company will provide one-on-one services for college students and it has selected 31 positions for this year’s graduates. It will organize exclusive job fairs and join with other human resources service companies to provide more resources for students.
