The CTGU First Lecture on Career Guidance for International Students Successfully Organized
As the 2021 graduation season for the international students is approaching, our university has arranged and organized a series of activities for the international students in this graduation season. Among them, the series of guidance activities for international students’ employment and advancement are planned to help international students to be familiar with employment policies, master job-hunting skills and enhance their competitiveness in the workplace by inviting excellent alumni as speakers online and offline. The first lecture was successfully held online and offline on the afternoon of April 1.
On the afternoon of April 1, Rodrigue, the 2020 alumnus, who works in a company in Kingkop Intelligent Technology in Fujian province, served as the first lecturer of the career guidance seminar. The lecture was conducted simultaneously online and offline, attracting more than 200 international students to participate in.
Rodrigue is currently in the company’s overseas engineering department in Serbia. Based on his job-hunting experience, he shared about how to prepare for a job, how to search for employment information, how to prepare job-hunting materials and interview skills, and briefly analyzed the differences in employment at home and abroad. At the end of the lecture, he gave detailed answers on audiences’ questions about Chinese proficiency, professional knowledge, salary and career development. The lecture also invited Ms. She Xiaoli from the College of Electrical Engineering & New Energy to plan the career for international students from the majors, and put forward valuable suggestions for their growth.
International students have expressed that they have benefited a lot from this employment seminar. They said that through the seminar, they have a better understanding of employment policies, and also have a clearer understanding of graduation employment procedures, and have more confidence in their own employment. They hope our university can continue to organize such activities.
The series of guidance activities for international students’ employment and advancement are sponsored by the College of International Communications and undertaken by the International Students Association (ISA). The college plans to continue to invite outstanding alumni of international students who are engaged in employment, further education and entrepreneurship, representatives of outstanding international students’ teachers in various colleges, and heads of relevant enterprises and institutions to continue to conduct a series of employment and advancement lectures for international students through online and offline presentations.
