Graduates get more teaching jobs
6.11 million fresh graduates will crowd into the job hunting market this year while it was only 5.59 million in 2008. Since there is a great pressure of the employment around the country, this year, 50000 graduate students which are three times more than it was in 2008 could work as short-term teachers.
There is a contract with the local government that graduate students should work there for 3 years and the central government will pay a special fund for them. “Some jobs are only available to students who will graduate in the summer of 2009,” Ministry Spokeswomen said on March 18th 2009. However, some excellent graduates such as those who once volunteered to work in the countryside in the past year, still, could take part in this project.
The short-term teacher project began 3 years ago to help college graduates find the jobs. Most of the graduates in this project may work in the rural areas and teach pupils or high school students. Besides the wage the get from the central government, they could get some extra money from the local government, said the Xu. Schools may have the right to decide whether to recruit students again after 3 years. The teachers will be employed in public job fairs.
This week, the Ministry also showed some other policies to the public, which may relieve the pressure of employment. There is also a new policy for the graduates who join the army. Government will pay their education loans and those who contribute a lot in the army may have the right to be recruited as the postgraduate students without taking those tough exams.
Those small and middle-size companies who may employ graduates this year will have good news. The government may give them some bonus and reduce some taxes.
MHRSS demanded the local governments to create more jobs for the graduates to ease the employment pressure. In the earlier interview, Wang Yadong, the deputy director of MHRSS’s employment promotion said that local government will give some bonus to college students who work at the bottom class.
Why are there some special funds or subsidies for the college students? These benefit policy is to encourage students to work in the rural area or the grassroots position or to have their own business.
Quite different from the students in the developed countries, Chinese students tend to work in the large cites and companies rather than start their own business. A recent study from MHRSS shows that only 0.3% college students choose to have their own business, while the number is much lower than the number of developed countries which is 40 percent.
