Graduate from best school to get the best jobs

Graduates from the best schools get the best jobs for the best pay in China, too.

Tsinghua University graduates get the best salaries in China.

Top schools – Shanghai Jiaotong University and Beijing Foreign Studies University also get top pay – Y4000/month ($750ish) within 6 months of graduating.

The average pay for the “State 211 project” – the nation’s largest education project for top universities is about Y2,500 which is still Y500 yen more than those from ordinary universities.

Some 90% of graduates in Beijing get jobs.

About 86% of those grads say they prefer to stay in the city instead of going to the country side.

The most wanted jobs are in:

1. Beijing

2. Tianjin – not too far from the capital

China expects about 5.59 million new graduates this summer, up 12.9% over last year. All the seniors are hoping they are among those grads.

Come job hunting season, many students are going to wish they had studied harder 4-5 years ago to get into one of the top tier schools, no?

Studying hard, getting into a good school, finding a job, earning top pay is the formula in China, too?

What top tier school are you planning to attend?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
