CHINA JOB MARKET
1. About Chinese Spring Recruiting Season
Chinese Spring Recruiting Season, is also known as Subsituation Recruiting Season, usually happens from Feb to April of each year. For the companies for which that have been rejected by candidates previous half year or still have job vacancies need to be filled, this is to re-open their recruiting process and fulfil the positions. As we all know, the main recruiting season for fresh graduates in China is from Sept to Dec, and it is mainly for the students who will graduate next year, if the students missed this recruiting period, they can only try to catch up with the spring recuiting season next year, however, in this spring, only 30% vacancies were lefted on the market waiting to be filled.
According to our survey, 80% of the Chinese overseas’ students submitted theor forst job application after they have graduated, this means they will have to delayed about one year long and need to compete with next wave of graduations when they come back to China. That is why it always takes them longer time to find their first job, and usually their first salary is much lower than they expected.
So we highly recommend for all students that will graduate this year that has also missed the recruiting season previous half year should defintately catch up with this spring recruiting season without a doubt.
