China / Liuzhou city to help graduates find jobs

Liuzhou city in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region pledged to work to help college graduates find jobs in the so-called toughest job market this year.

It is estimated that the number of new college graduates who are expected to leave campus this summer will reach 6.99 million, the highest record in China. As many as 11,000 out of all the 14,000 Liuzhou-born new college graduates this year are expected to look for jobs inside the city.

The municipal government of Liuzhou has recently announced plans to make sure at least 85 percent of college graduates, who registered to look for jobs in Liuzhou before the end of 2013, can be employed.

The city plans to add 700 to 800 jobs at charitable organizations in an aim to offer more opportunities to recent college graduates. The city will also offer subsidies to local enterprises in Liuzhou to encourage them to create 1,000 job positions.
