Chinese University Graduates on a job fairXiao Zhang, aged 22, a college graduate in Xi’an, is just out of a job market. She looks depressed and exhausted. Like many graduates from the countryside, Xiao Zhang hopes she will be able to stay in a big city like Xi’an after graduation. However, the future of landing a teaching position in a middle-school in the city is bleak for the English major. It is the sixth time she has ever been to a “talent market”. But her talent is still waited to be found out.

Actually there are millions of students who are in the same boat with Xiao Zhang. The job-hunting season usually starts in November for college graduates. Each year after Chinese lunar Spring Festival, they make a high-speed rush toward desirable jobs. However, in the spring of 2009, the situation is harsher than ever.

As the economy worsens, the number of employed college graduates in the season has hit record low. According to Xiao Zhang, in her grade, only eight students out of forty-nine have signed employment contracts by the middle of March, 2009, which is less than 20%, compared to over 70% the same time last year in her department. Those lucky ones are mostly male students. Straight-A girl students have to face even more of picky eyes and strict selection than their male counterparts.
