China / Job Market Tougher for Women Grads

(Chosen excerpts by Job Market Monitor) – Much has already been written and discussed about this year’s employment season, which has been called the toughest yet in China’s history. But for women graduates, it is even more difficult. According to several universities in central China’s Hunan Province, such as the Hunan Women’s University and Hunan Agricultural University, nearly half of their women graduates have not landed jobs as of press time.

Students graduating from universities reached a record of 6.99 million this year, 190,000 more than last year, according to Vice Minister of China’s Ministry of Education (MOE) Du Yubo.
