As job-seeking becomes more competitive this year due to the economic depression brought by the novel coronavirus outbreak, Shanghai Normal University launched a lecture series on Tik Tok on May 13 to guide female students, who are probably under more pressure than male ones in finding a job due to the potential gender discrimination.
The three lectures are all given by career planning experts and enterprise leaders and will last till May 27. The first one has attracted 4,000 views on the platform.
Pang Tingting, a senior student from Shanghai Normal University, said that the lecture was quite interesting and interactive, which helped her find out her goal in career selection.
Besides the guidance especially for female graduates, the Career Development and Employment Guidance Center of the university have also launched an online career ability improvement program with FESCO Adecco, a joint-venture HR services company. The program trains graduates in how to find a satisfying job by solving normal problems in online applications, resume writing, interviews, and personal communication.
All courses of the training program are delivered by senior human resources management experts from FESCO Adecco. Each session ends with Q&A to provide students with professional and refined employment guidance. (Shanghai)
