Over 10,000 high-skilled job openings were offered at the Medium- and High-level Talents Job Fair, part of the Conference on International Exchange of Professionals (CIEP), which concluded Sunday afternoon.
A total of 455 employers from more than 60 industries were present at the career fair. “The data shows that Shenzhen is short of almost 20,000 digitalization-related talents,” said a staffer surnamed Ou with Shenzhen Institute of Computing Sciences.
Zhai Bin, general manager of event organizer Shenzhen Talent Group, told Shenzhen Daily about the South China tech hub’s advantages in attracting talents. “We are offering convenience to catch the attention of bright minds,” Zhai said. The city’s talent-related policies involve affordable housing, a point-based hukou system and other preferential treatments for workers.
The two-day CIEP attracted 392 exhibitors from China and abroad. Exhibitors presented 885 projects and displayed 332 on-site product exhibitions. Provinces and cities reached 695 initial intents of cooperation with professional organizations, training institutions and others. A total of 35,000 people visited the conference.
Many internationally known companies, including Tencent, China Resources, Ping An Insurance Company of China and Foxconn, offered 15,000 positions in several online and offline job fairs. They received over 10,000 resumes on site and more than 1,000 people reached preliminary employment agreements with these enterprises.
