Candidates look at employment opportunities at a job fair in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.
China's central authorities have prioritized the employment of young people, especially new college graduates yet to land jobs, by organizing regular job fairs and creating more grassroots-level vacancies.
The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security said a national employment campaign is taking place from July to December focusing on this year's 10.76 million new college graduates and jobless people under the age of 35.
Under the national campaign, human resources bureaus at all levels are required to collect and provide graduates with employment information and offer them recruitment platforms and other channels to find jobs.
The ministry said that more regular on-site job fairs will be organized during the campaign. For example, those cities with large populations of college graduates should organize a comprehensive job fair every month.
Graduates who have financial difficulties or disabilities will receive additional help in securing internships and professional guidance on job interviews.
