A series of job fairs co-organized by FESCO Adecco and a number of well-established universities, including Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and Shanghai Normal University named "better work, better life" have been well received by fresh graduates against the backdrop of a less-than-stellar economic bigger picture.
FESCO Adecco has been holding the fairs since 2011, aiming to provide an information platform to companies, universities and graduates.
Confronted with the uncertainties in the world economy outlook, college graduates will be faced with more challenges when hunting jobs in 2013. However, job fairs held by FESCO Adecco typically offer more than 1,000 positions and attract about 4,000 graduates, including those from neighboring Nanjing and Hangzhou.
During the 2013 job hunting season, FESCO Adecco will hold job fairs catering to different industries and offering multiple opportunities to students across a wide variety of fields.
According to a job-fair report surveying 2012 graduates released by Beijing-based Taihe Consulting, about 90 percent of the interviewed companies engaged in campus recruitment in 2012, with 78.9 percent of them planning to make hires through the process. Since 67.4 percent of the employers saw their recruiting costs rise last year due to rising labor costs, the salaries they offered were not lucrative for the most part.
At FESCO Adecco, boosting public welfare is the core principal of the company's job fairs. Without charging students or companies, it is FESCO Adecco's goal to set up a broader and more direct platform between employers and graduates to facilitate their communication.
While the world economy was somewhat shaky in 2012, with many companies encountering difficulties, FESCO Adecco encourages job hunters to remain engaged in the search, as companies still seek to develop top talent.
