The Tsinghua School of Economics and Management (Tsinghua SEM) held its 2023 Spring Semester on-campus career fair, organized by the school's Career Development Center (CDC), at the Jianhua Building on the afternoon of March 23, 2023. The fair targeted all undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and MBA students at Tsinghua SEM (including international students and those from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan), as well as students from other schools within Tsinghua University. As many as 800 students attended the fair to meet with 89 employers, including companies within the school's Advisory Board and covering fields such as finance, consulting, technology, healthcare, energy, chemical industries, manufacturing, and education. They offered more than 2,000 internship and full-time job opportunities.
International and Diverse: Joint Efforts to Uncover Employment Resources
The internationalization of the career fair is one of its main highlights. Companies such as Hengli Petrochemical International Pte. Ltd. (HPI), which specializes in the energy and chemical industries, traveled from Singapore to offer students job opportunities abroad. Other firms like Didi Chuxing and Xiaomi in the technology and internet industries looked for management talents with an international vision to expand their operations abroad. Foreign students and those from Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan at Tsinghua SEM engaged with employers on-site with the support of CDC teachers and eagerly applied for both internships and full-time job opportunities in China.
The main objective of this career fair is diversity. Participating companies represent a range of industries, including financial institutions and industrial companies such as Hengli, Li Auto, Siemens, Jiangnan Mould & Plastic Technology, Geely Holding Group, Gaush Meditech, and Muyuan Foods. This expands students' career opportunities, aligns with the "financial services for the real economy" concept, and addresses the demand for management talents from Tsinghua SEM in various fields.
Mainstream and Distinctive: Helping Students Achieve Value
In recent years, Tsinghua SEM has focused on talent development goals of fostering academic masters, entrepreneurial talents, national governance pillars, and international talents by deepening guidance and services for students' career development. Employment is not only a career choice for individual students, but also a manifestation of the school's philosophy of education. The Shenzhen Stock Exchange's Postdoctoral Workstation, as a representative of the regulatory institution, announced it was recruiting for research positions to study China's macroeconomics and market strategies, providing valuable opportunities for students to pursue their career goals.
The collaboration with companies in Tsinghua SEM's Advisory Board is a major characteristic of the school's employment efforts. The Advisory Board's mission is to strengthen the school's connections with external communities, enhance the overall level of research and teaching, and help the school become a world-class economic and management institution. At the career fair, Starr Insurance Companies, Paulson Institute, Baidu, and Tencent - all members of the Advisory Board - provided high-quality internship and full-time job opportunities to students.
The career fair emphasized both mainstream orientation and the distinctive characteristics of management. It encouraged Tsinghua SEM graduates to closely align their ideals with the strategic needs of the country and society, and to become ambitious and capable individuals who can fulfill great responsibilities in the new era.
Matching Talent Supply and Demand: Optimizing Employment
The CDC of Tsinghua SEM conducted a comprehensive review of the employment destinations of previous graduates and reviewed the rankings and strengths of each including emerging and potential business forms in recent years. It has adopted an approach of "going out and inviting in," actively exploring and striving to achieve efficient and accurate matching between talents and employers.
Numerous employers expressed a strong interest in Tsinghua students who attended the career fair. A recruitment officer from the Shenzhen Stock Exchange lauded the students' rich and outstanding internship experiences, as well as their excellent preparations. The recruitment officer for Legend Capital said, "Tsinghua students have always had an excellent reputation, and the students who participated in this career fair have set clear goals and demonstrated a definite career plan." The recruitment officer for Starr Insurance Companies was equally impressed by the dynamic and pragmatic qualities of the students.
The meticulously planned career fair earned high praise from the participating recruiters. A CITIC Securities recruitment officer said, "The early stage staff coordination, the clear and organized campus entrance procedures, the well-organized recruitment site, and the overall atmosphere were all excellent." A Didi Chuxing recruitment officer said the school, students, and enterprises paid great attention and were dedicated to the event, and said it was a rare opportunity to recruit top talent.
For a considerable period, the CDC has upheld its action principle of "stabilizing, promoting, and ensuring employment." It has achieved this by leveraging multiple resources, innovating methods of employment and recruitment, and strengthening employment guidance and career counseling systems. These have helped Tsinghua SEM students to succeed in the professional world. This comprehensive, zero-distance, and deeply interactive career fair connects the students with their ideal job positions and demonstrates the school's commitment to and implementation of national policies to ensure the employment of key groups, such as university and college graduates.
