Professionals in dozens of key industries including international trade, modern logistics, port management, harbor and waterway engineering and high-end steel production are urgently needed.
The growing demand for skilled workers of talents stems from the rapid development of Tangshan, where the traditional industry base is evolving to a modern industry base, and the extensive economic growth mode is changing to circular and technology-intensive ones.
