To attract more overseas returnees to work and start businesses in Shanghai, the city's talent service center launched a vocational training camp on Aug 17.
Five HR managers from fortune 500 companies and two outstanding returnees in Shanghai were invited to give guidance to more than 40 students who have returned from more than 30 overseas universities in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany.
The training camp focused on the needs of returnees who want to work and live in Shanghai.
Tutors introduced the domestic recruitment environment, taught students how to put together a proper resume, and held mock job interviews with them.
Overseas students also learned about policies related to working in Shanghai and participated in a variety of activities designed to help them find a job or start a business in the city.
Zhu Yinghua, an overseas returnee and manager at the Shanghai Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, said the bureau is setting up a website to teach overseas returnees about Shanghai's working and living environment and has also launched a series of activities to help in this regard.
