Chinese students: visit the 2013 China Career Development Job Fair

27 September 2013

The British Council, operating in China as the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy, will run a series of career development workshops in the UK from 26 October to 3 November 2013.

Based on last year’s success, the British Council China will hold four workshop sessions this year, including mini job fairs in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and London. These workshops will give you further insight into the career opportunities available and professional advice on job hunting and interview skills.

This year the British Council is working in partnership with Chinese recruitment firm Zhaopin to invite well known businesses to take part in the event. You will be able to explore your interests and skills in order to progress in your career. You will also have the chance to interact with business representatives who will be able to offer career development advice and information on their own job opportunities.

The sessions are open to all Chinese students studying in the UK. Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Successful registrants will receive email confirmation from the British Council following the close of registration.
