This year, GUCCU and Lockin China corporate with hundreds of global Universities and 1,000+Chinese employers, visited 10 countries, held recruitment events in 107 Universities, met 20,000+overseas talents, saw 45,000+students watch the live show. In addition, this year we found a certain number of local students and other international students have attended our events, which may suggest that more non-Chinese students are attracted by Chinese labor market.

We also brought a number of employers in different industries in China to GUCCU member and corporate universities to deliver career talks to the students.
Please find examples of the recruitment projects we held on campuses as follows:
Here we would like to give our sincere thanks to all the Universities who have supported the 80 Days Event.

3. 2018 GUCDC is open to register
The 3rd Global University (China) Career Development Conference is scheduled to be held at Guangdong, China from 25th March to 31st March.
This is a great opportunity for career professionnels to gain an insight of Chinese labour market and to meet both your peers at global universities and many Chinese employers. At the conference, you will be able to hold wide-ranging discussions on specific topics about Chinese employers' process of recruitment and undertake an analysis of job seeking channels and situations of the career development of international students, especially Chinese returnees.
Researches have shown that in 2017, a total of 670,000 Chinese talents who have studied or worked overseas are returning to China for career development. With the rapid development of Chinese economy these last decades, an increasing number of Chinese employers are looking for Chinese returnees. Therefore, they are more willing to build relationships with global universities so as to secure the best candidates. The conference aims to build a bridge for communication for each party.

CHINA JOB MARKET
CV/resume Writing: Components of a Chinese CV/resume
During the 80 Days Event for Talents from Overseas, Lockin China got a lot of feedbacks from students at hosting universities and scanned thousands of CVs from overseas students. We found that many students are confused about the difference of CV/resume writing in China and other countries. Therefore, we are sharing with you which components a Chinese CV/resume has and dosen't have, so that job seekers may avoid the tragedy caused by missing points or verbosity.
1. Chinese CVs/resumes are not a part of job applications, somehow, they are seen as identical things. So Chinese applicants do not need a cover letter, a motivation letter or even a transcript. It doesn’t mean that HRs do not care why job seekers are applying for their job or their behaviors at universities. In China, HRs are making the first phone call to applicants to check their motivation instead.
2. A Chinese CV/resume should have a photo. In some areas, job seekers are usually not required to upload their photos to their CVs/resumes. But in China, HR’s are more willing to look at an applicant's CV/resume by seeing the photo. This photo should be professional, either Chinese or foreign professional style. But please note: never use your selfie as your profile.
3. New graduates might not have much work experience. Because of this, HRs will firstly check their educational background to see whether he or she is a good student . In the opinion of the HR, good students have a better ability to learn and could consequently learn to work more efficiently. In this situation, the ranking and branding of the University attended by the job seeker plays an important role.
4. Global components: in almost every country, job seekers should mention their basic info such as name, correspondence as well as language skills, computer skills and work/internship experience. While writing a Chinese CV/resume, job seekers are recommended to use professional vocabulary.
5. A special column regarding the job description should be added. As mentioned in Point 1, Chinese applications do not request a motivation letter. However, job seekers can write some special words regarding the position they are applying for. E.g., students applying for a position at Decathlon should mention their interests in sports and those applying to A&F should elaborate on their sense of fashion.
China Portal: China Portal is provided by GUCCU exclusively for our member universities. It is a webpage contains valuable information about China’s labour market and useful tips for finding jobs in China. In the meantime, employers are posting vacancies on the Portal that targeting at your students.
