Primary and secondary education sectors provided 8.7 percent of total job opportunities for graduates in 2015, an increase of 2.2 percent over 2014, according to a report on employment of Chinese college graduates in 2016 released by an education consulting company MyCOS on Sunday.
However, the average salary of those joining primary or secondary education sectors was the lowest, about 3,500 yuan ($533), six months after graduation.The other top five sectors that recorded biggest job increase were: internet development and application; finance; medical care or first aid service; and media and publishing.
College graduates who joined internet development and application industries were best paid, with an average monthly salary of 5,017 yuan, six months after graduation.
Internet development and application also saw a year-on-year increase in jobs.The proportion of undergraduates who took up job opportunities rose 3.4 percent from 2010 to 2015. The ratio for higher vocational college graduates from 2013 to 2015 stood at 2.4 percent.The five occupations that saw sharpest fall in work opportunities in 2015 were architectural engineering; machinery or instrument; marketing; electrical or electronics (with computer science excluded); and automobile engineering.Architectural engineering saw the biggest dive, dropping 1.6 percent from the previous year, though it still provided 6 percent of total job opportunities.
Architectural engineering was among the cluster that witnessed an increase in jobs from 2011 to 2014 and the decline in 2015 may be a result of the tightened national policy on property, said MyCOS.
The MyCOS report is based on its tracking assessment on graduates of 2015 for six months since their graduation, covering 123,000 undergraduates and 127,000 higher vocational college graduates.0Related StoriesPremier Li stresses job creation for college graduatesShanxi offers high-tech job opportunities1st quarter job market stays stableIndustrial capacity cuts weigh on job marketGreater say for universities in own affairs can help graduates suit the job marketCampus vocational center brings job market to students in advanceInternet industry offers highest salary for graduatesTop 10 industries with the highest salaryPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsConstruction of new airport takes off in ChengduOld map shows the Philippines claim over South China Sea islands groundlessRacial sensitivity urged as ad causes outrageCamps abroad offer students a new experienceCRRC unveils Chinas first high-tech monorail train powered by magnet motorsWhat is that thing?
