Interest in jobs with State-owned enterprises - once regarded as the best choice for college students because such jobs offered a decent income with no risk of being laid off - has fallen for the third year in a row, a new report shows.

Zhaopin, a Chinese human resources website, conducted a poll at 20 universities in China. Only 21.7 percent of interviewees said they would go to State-owned enterprises. Last year, 22.6 percent expressed such an interest, and in 2013, 29 percent did so.

However, such jobs remain the second choice of college students, with the top choice being to work for multinationals.
