According to the Ministry of Education of China, the number of students returning home to China is up 11.73 percent year-on-year. Other data indicates that of the 6.56 million Chinese students studying outside of the country 86 percent returned (Global Times 2020). In other words, helping our upcoming graduates and new alumni navigate a job search in their home countries and regions has become more pressing and needed. In this session, we will speak to four alumni from varied schools and colleges and industry backgrounds to glean advice and best practice for your job search. Join us to:
1. Gain an understanding and confidence in HOW to harness the power of the UM network specifically though both UM and non-UM resources.
2. Learn and hear observations from the panelists on industries/market changes that are experiencing growth (projected hiring needs, experience or skills in high demand, etc.) and how these are impacting the job search.
3. Gain a better understanding of career branding (LinkedIn; WeChat etc) and it’s importance in executing the job search through visibility and access to the hidden job market via referrals.
4. Identify and understand key cultural best practices in communication and networking for the job search.
This event is a shared partnership between the UM Ross School of Business Career Development Office, the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan Career Program and our International Alumni Clubs located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
