Greetings from China!

Under the current global economic context, university graduates are facing increasing pressure and competition in the job market, which is particularly the case for Chinese students graduating from UK or other overseas institutions. In order to prepare Chinese students for their future career development in China, the British Council China plans to organise three employability workshops in the UK from 20 November to 27 November 2009, at which Chinese students can get first-hand information and updates from HR professionals who represent major employers in China.

Please find below an itinerary of the workshops:

City    Time    Venue* 
London  15:00 – 17:00, 21 November 2009 (Saturday)              Westminster City Hall  
Cardiff 19:00 – 21:00, 24 November 2009 (Tuesday)                 Cardiff University     
Edinburgh       19:00 – 21:00, 27 November 2009 (Friday)        University of Edinburgh
*Detailed venue information will be sent to registered students with the registration confirmation letters

This is the second time for the British Council China to organise such workshops in the UK and the first one, in February 2007, was warmly welcomed by Chinese students as well as many UK institutions. More than 300 Chinese students on average attended each of the ten workshop sessions back then. As we did previously, we will invite speakers from various backgrounds and with rich experience in human resource and graduate recruitment in China. The guest speakers will share their insights with students on career development and employability skills, especially needs and demands of current employers in China.

The workshops will be delivered in Chinese language only and will be open to all Chinese students free of charge. We will be most grateful if you, or your colleagues in charge of career services, could help disseminate the event information as attached (both Word and Adobe versions) to all Chinese students who are currently studying at your institution at your earliest convenience.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to both Cardiff University and University of Edinburgh for hosting the sessions for Chinese students in Wales and Scotland.
