Changzhou University in Changzhou, East China's Jiangsu province has been taking a series of measures to help its soon-to-be graduates find their ideal jobs.
The university has been holding more than 10 job fairs in local enterprises this semester to allow students to view potential workplaces in person. Students can better learn about employers' demands for talent and make informed decisions this way, said Xia Jun, deputy secretary general at a local chamber of commerce in Changzhou.
Long Yonglan, deputy head of Changzhou University's student affairs department, said the practice could also help improve the university's training talent as employers would make some suggestions during the job fair.

The university has also invited prestigious State-owned enterprises to hold job fairs on campus. In a recruitment roadshow organized by China National Offshore Oil Corporation, 10 students received offers from subsidiaries of the company.
Duan Chenyu, who will graduate next year and work as a mechanical engineer at CNOOC Energy Technology and Services Limited, said the annual salary for the first three years is 100,000 yuan ($15,695), 130,000 yuan and 160,000 yuan respectively.
The School of Mechanical Engineering and Rail Transit of Changzhou University has also provided career guidance and forwarded online job information to graduating students based on their majors and interests.
To date, 50 percent of senior students at Changzhou University who decide to work after graduation have found a job.
