According to the "Research Report on Science and Technology for Chinese Students" released by Kai Tak Education, 46% of foreign students in science and engineering think it is difficult to find a job, and 54% of the respondents said that the difficulty in finding a job is average, not too difficult, agree or say no In Qing Dynasty, only 8.6% of all international students in science and technology interviewed thought that finding a job was very difficult. This shows that on the one hand, the experience of studying abroad has enabled international science and technology students to have the necessary professional skills to find a job, and on the other hand, they have become more confident in finding a job.
According to the data of "Recruitment of Zhilian: Employment Survey of New Graduates in 2018", more than 80% of the fresh graduates of 2018 consider employment difficult, and 34.60% of the fresh graduates consider employment "difficult and the situation is very grim. 48.20% think that employment is "difficult, but acceptable", and the proportion of "general, unclear, not at all difficult" is only (17.2%). Compared with this data, international students in science and engineering are more optimistic about employment.
Although foreign science and engineering students are generally more optimistic about finding a job, they encountered more or less problems in finding a job. These problems mainly include "high competition pressure" (58.9%) and "no relevant work experience" (38.7%) "" Professional advantages are not obvious "(25.2%). In addition, there are some issues related to job search skills , such as "insufficient interview skills" (22.1%), "lack of performance and ability to pack themselves" (19.6%).
In response to the problems encountered by international science and engineering students when they are looking for a job, Kai Tak Education recommends that you understand the entry requirements and main inspection points of the desired position through multiple channels before graduation, and make targeted recruitment preparations to enhance your job success probability. Don't forget to learn professional knowledge while preparing for a job. After all, successfully completing your studies is the prerequisite for finding a good job. In addition, students who are not confident about their job search skills can also take the time to consult a job counseling agency to be prepared.
For fresh graduates of science and engineering, the focus of recruitment is often on their internship experience and professional skills, but for people with a certain degree of foreign work experience, "connections" in job applications are often their biggest concern when they return to work in China. According to the data from LinkedIn: The Attractiveness of Chinese Overseas Returnees in 2018, 54.5% of overseas Chinese surveyed believe that lack of professional contacts is their biggest concern when returning to China for employment. Chinese people living in their homeland who are living abroad will be concerned about their connections when they return to work. 62% of respondents who have never lived in China say they will worry about connections when considering returning to work. 50% of respondents have domestic life experience. They said they also had concerns about working relationships when considering returning to work.
In addition, the challenges described by overseas Chinese for returning to China to apply for jobs include "lack of platforms to find suitable Chinese jobs", "lack of understanding of the working environment", "lack of understanding of corporate needs", "lack of understanding of industry trends", etc. .
