Top Chinese University Graduates Enter Private Education Sector
Earlier this year, 39 top Chinese universities released their graduate career reports, showing that large enterprises and government departments are still the leading sectors for employment. Across the various lists, Huawei remains at the top and recruits hundreds of students (undergraduate, Masters and PhD) from a number of universities.
Other leading employers include the State Grid, China Construction Corp, GM, China Bank of Construction and Bi Guiyuan Real Estate. One noticeable trend is the increasing number of students choosing to work in the private education sector, particularly for companies such as TAL Education (Hao Wei Lai) and New Oriental, mostly in English training. For the first time, education now ranks in the top ten employment sectors for these top Chinese universities.
