BEIJING, July 3 (Xinhua) -- About four out of five fresh Chinese higher education graduates said that they are willing to work, 6.39 percent more than the previous year, according to a recent employment survey report.
The report, published by leading hiring website Zhaopin.com, polled more than 90,000 recent university and college graduates.
Although he was admitted to a postgraduate program at China Foreign Affairs University, Zhu Xiaowei, a recent graduate of the same university, has chosen instead to work for a media company after graduation.
"Good offers seldom come twice," he said. "To work for an established company instead of furthering my study or starting my own business will help me become more competitive in the job market and more financially self-reliant."
"In the increasingly complex and changing job market, graduates are more cautious in planning career," Zhu added.
China is expected to see about 8.2 million higher education graduates this year, 250,000 more than 2017, the report said.
