Beijing - There are 100 applicants for 13 companies who are aspiring to enter the Chinese job market. The Italian Cultural Institute in Beijing has organised the fourth edition of the Career Day. It is dedicated to young people seeking to enter the Chinese job market and to enterprises looking for new talents. The Career Day stems from a collaboration between the Italian Embassy in Beijing, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China and the Association of Italian Youth in China (AGIC). The event was introduced by the Italian Ambassador in Beijing, Ettore Sequi, followed by the president of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China, Davide Cucino.
During the first session of the event, the speakers illustrated the different aspects of the labour market in China through thematic workshops. The second session was devoted to meetings between job applicants and enterprises. Marina Timoteo, director of Almalaurea, presented her study on "Italian graduates and China: placement prospects".
Federico Roberto Antonelli, legal attache of the Italian Embassy in Beijing, illustrated the innovations introduced by the Treaty of University Degrees in Italy and China. Giulia Ziggiotti, Secretary General of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China, spoke about the agreement between CCIC and Almalaurea. It was signed earlier this year in January during the visit to Beijing by the Undersecretary of State for Economic Development, Ivan Scalfarotto. Jacopo Bettinelli, a startup founder and AGIC member, discussed the issues of job seekers in China. Antimo Cappuccio, head of the Pirola, Pennuto and Zei legal and tax consulting firm, spoke about the latest norms on job licences in China.
