Summer is the critical period for college graduates seeking employment, and regions such as Shanghai city and the provinces of Qinghai, Inner Mongolia, Jiangsu, and Shaanxi have launched special initiatives to assist graduates in finding jobs through digital assistance and practical training.

To help new graduates who lack job-hunting experience, cities like Beijing and Shanghai have partnered with universities and social organizations to set up "Job Hunting Training Camps." These camps provide practical exercises in career planning and job interview simulations, allowing students to practice the job search process beforehand.

"I'm very fortunate to have participated in this training camp. My job hunting skills have improved, and I've gained a deeper understanding of the importance of professional guidance for employment," said Dong Chang, a recent graduate in social work from Beijing City University.

"Of the 25 trainees who attended the camp with Dong, they collectively received 38' interview pass cards' from companies through on-site job applications, and some trainees have been chosen by 2 to 3 companies," said a responsible person.

"Are you interested in the accounting position? Let me tell you about the job opportunities at this company…" In the live-stream studio at the Ningxia Vocational and Technical College, the person in charge is recommending and explaining job details to online job seekers.

Colleges and universities, which are at the forefront of promoting employment, have focused on the digitalization of employment guidance in recent years. Many of them have established intelligent employment systems that integrate policy consultation, predictive analysis, and procedural handling to comprehensively support high-quality employment for students.
