For 29-year-old Jiao Jin, it was her grandfather's funeral seven years ago that led her to enter the funeral service industry after receiving a degree in management from a university in Germany.

"When he passed away, I applied all his makeup," she said. Jiao is now a mortician in Beijing East Suburbs Funeral Home.

The profession might not appeal to everyone, but its practitioners take great pride in their ability to provide efficient and appropriate service, so the industry attracts more and more college graduates, though few with related majors.
