Songjiang G60 Corridor holds a job fair for graduates from top Beijing universities

    The G60 Science & Technology Innovation Corridor in Songjiang District held a job fair for Beijing's well-known universities' graduates at the Career Development Center of Tsinghua University on Wednesday.

    More than 40 renowned companies and institutions in Songjiang District signed up for the fair, attracting more than 300 university graduates.

    Xiang Botao, deputy secretary of the CPC Tsinghua University Committee, said Tsinghua University and Songjiang District have extensive cooperation in strategic decision-making consultancy, technological research finding transfer, and talent cultivation. Tsinghua University highly values its graduates' employment and deem its graduates' employment guidance and talent cultivation as of strategic importance.

    The Songjiang District firmly supports Shanghai's efforts in building itself into a technological and innovation center and the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta regions. The district has not only initiated the construction of the G60 Science & Technology Innovation Corridor, but also gained a head start in the new phase of high-quality development. The job fair held by the G60 Science & Technology Innovation Corridor indicates that Songjiang has attached great importance to talent, Xiang added.

    Songjiang Party Secretary Cheng Xiangmin said that when the construction of the G60 Science & Technology Innovation Corridor is finished, it will shorten the travel distance among the corridor's nine places to the center of Shanghai within one hour, which will greatly reduce the commuting cost.

    Songjiang, the birthplace of Shanghai, now gathers a number of universities and industrial manufacturers. The G60 Corridor has been promoting the real economy based on advanced manufacturing.

    Independent innovation is the G60 Corridor's core competitiveness and the cultural confidence is an important driving force of technological innovation.

    In the meantime, Songjiang is building its top business environment and improving its ability to serve the talent. The G60 Corridor has the country's best policies to serve the professionals, Cheng added.

    At the job fair, the graduates watched videos introducing the corridor's construction, the humane environment development and new talent policies.

    Zhang Wen, a biotechnology major graduate from the Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology of Tsinghua University, said Shanghai is a city of innovation and he hopes that he could work and live in Shanghai. The job he seeks is mainly in the new energy and biological medicine, and the employers such as NEVS and Haoshi Biological Technology have openings in the field he desires, so he plans to apply for the two companies.

    More than 300 graduates come from Beijing top-notch universities such as Tsinghua University, Beijing University, Renmin University of China attended the job fair, with 639 applications submitted, and 203 reached initial intention with the 40 employers in Songjiang.

    Other than the four universities and three industrial parks of Songjiang, the district's companies offered 164 job openings at the fair and they plan to hire 656 people. The average monthly salary stands at 10,384 yuan (US$1,506), higher than the average monthly salary of 9,000 yuan for Beijing's key universities' graduates.
