Volunteers for Shanghai Expo
The student from the shanghai University of science and Technology wanted to apply for the Shanghai World Expo volunteer program, which he believed would bring her “some experience to build necessary social skills” while getting involved in “such an exciting” event.
If she failed to find a satisfactory job this year, at least she could do something in this world-class event, which would benefit her in the future.
Yu is happy that the expo will give up its volunteer recruitment program in May this year. Now more than 1 million volunteers hope to be hired.
Chen Zhenmin, director of the shanghai World Expo Social Mobilization Office, said yesterday that while most volunteers would be hired from college students, this did not mean that other people would not be welcomed.
The Expo will last for 184 days, from May 1 to Oct 31. During these days, volunteers will serve 14 to 20 days on average. But authorities might extend the period because of passionate and enthusiastic response form the public.
Authorities said the expo would provide 2000 to 3000 jobs for college graduates this year. “A large number of people would be trained to communicate with foreigners, which will help the city in the future,” said Xu Weiguo, deputy Party chief of shanghai World Expo Coordination Bureau.
