According to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, more than 12 million jobs were created in China from January to November this year, reaching the government’s annual target of 10 million, ahead of schedule.
And here are some more details on popular career choices. According to the 2017 Blue Paper released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, nearly one-third of new graduates plan to pursue jobs in engineering, finance, and media areas. Vocations in education have been getting more popular since 2012, and jobs in finance and media have been gaining favor since last year.
And not all graduates choose careers directly related to their majors. While most medical science graduates pursue related jobs, students of science, agriculture and history are more likely to go after unrelated jobs.
