This event will mark the official launch of AustCham’s new online recruitment platform, Aozhouhaigui.com. In Chinese, “AoZhou” means “Australia” and “HaiGui” refers to Chinese graduates of foreign universities who return to China to work.
Aozhouhaigui.com is an innovative HR portal connecting high quality, bilingual graduates exclusively from the Group of Eight (“Go8” – Australia’s eight leading research universities) universities with a network of over 50,000+ leading employers in China, comprising of member companies from AustCham Beijing, South China, West China, Bohai and the China Chamber of International Commerce (CCOIC).
On Aozhouhaigui.com, graduates simply create a profile, list qualifications and select their employment preferences. Companies can search for candidates that meet their personnel requirements and initiate a conversation about job opportunities. The platform is free to use for Go8 graduates and students, as well as CCOIC and AustCham member companies.
The launch event will feature several speakers including H.E Ms Jan Adams AO PSM, Australian Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China, Vicki Thomson, CEO of the Group of Eight, Tony Qiu, Managing Director of JD.com Worldwide and Tracy Colgan, AustCham Beijing Chair.
