As China’s economy bounces back, job seekers are flooding to the job fairs in Hubei province, a major industrial province. The “Spring Breeze” event, which offers employment opportunities by organizing job fairs across the province, has attracted 856,000 jobs from 20,000 companies, with nearly 2,500 job fairs planned from January to March. Busy job fairs reflect China’s economic vitality, offering hope and opportunities for job seekers.
The job fair in Huarong District alone attracted 8,000 jobs from companies, including positions in the express logistics industry, which is recovering with the rebounding economy. Many young applicants were drawn to the logistics positions. As per Tan Kai, a recruiter of an express company, “The recruitment need of the entire express logistics industry is increasing significantly this year.”
Meanwhile, at the job fair in Tianmen City, sewing job opportunities were plentiful, reflecting the rapid development of the local clothing industry. To promote the clothing industry’s growth, Tianmen invested in a “Clothing Town” and has planned to introduce over 50 garment enterprises. Eleven garment enterprises have already started production with 4,500 employees. The continuous entry of such enterprises has created many job opportunities. This year, the “Clothing Town” has provided 1,000 new jobs, with sewing positions being in high demand.
Hubei has also set up livestreaming recruitment events, where companies explain their job requirements and answer any questions from the audience in real-time. So far, Hubei has held over 2,000 online and offline job fairs, helping over 215,000 people find jobs. Job seekers have expressed their confidence in finding jobs with the current booming economy and the increased willingness of companies to hire. As per Liu Yanhong, the head of the provincial human resources and social security department, “Unlike in past years, companies develop with a strong willingness to hire this year.”
