According to the Epoch Times, May 20th, 2022, this summer, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will welcome tens of millions of college graduates.  As a result of the recent “dynamic clearing” policy, several major cities have been closed down, severely impacting the CCP economy, and graduates are facing the worst employment winter.  According to a survey, the employment contract rate for graduates has dropped to 23%.  A recent list of civil servants to be hired includes a Ph.D. from Beijing University striving to become a grassroots city manager.

Zhaopin recruitment recently released the 2022 College Student Employability Survey Report, showing that as of May, the contracting rate for male graduates was about 23 percent and only 10 percent for female graduates, both lower than last year.

Data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on May 16th, showed that in April 2022, the national urban unemployment rate stood at 6.1%, a new high since March 2020.  In addition, the surveyed unemployment rate for 16 to 24 was 18.2%, a record high.

Recently, Beijing Chaoyang District announced the list of civil servants hired in 2022.  Many of those admitted are graduates of prestigious schools in China and abroad, of which up to two-thirds have master and doctoral degrees.  These posts are “primary-level governance” positions from the recruitment requirements.
