Australia-China Careers Fair 2018

Following the success of past Careers Fairs delivered by the Australian Chamber of Commerce Shanghai (AustCham Shanghai) and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), the two organisations will join forces to host the 2018 Australia-China Careers Fair in Shanghai on Sunday July, 15.

AustCham Shanghai invites your business to attend this year's Australia-China Careers Fair and gain an opportunity to recruit internationally educated talents returning to China. Registration is free for AustCham Shanghai members, and as a participating company you will be provided with a booth on the day to facilitate interactions with attendees and Australian education institutions representatives.

Supported by local partner Zhaopin.com and sponsored by CPA Australia and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Careers Fair will involve interactive career workshops and support the career development of both current Chinese students and graduates of Australian education institutions by linking them with key Chinese and Australian businesses operating in China.

Why You Should Participate

With 87% of Chinese students now returning home after graduation, and an increasingly competitive local marketplace, Chinese students now more than ever need increased support from Australian institutions to help them find internships and employment, and enhance recognition of their qualifications amongst Chinese employers.

> Recruit some of the brightest returning graduates from Australian education institutions – over 600 participants attended the 2017 edition and this year's should see a new record turnout.
> Benefit from prominent branding exposure with your logo displayed on all promotional materials leading up to and on the day of the Careers Fair.
> Develop relationships with Australian education institutions and government agencies and strengthen your talent pool.
