After months of constraint by the coronavirus pandemic, a job fair was held in the Beijing Career Guidance Center for Graduates on Wednesday. It was the first on-site job fair designed to help this fall's graduating college students in the city.

The fair required job seekers to wear masks and maintain social distancing of at least 1 meter when lining up to visit the booths of employers.

It attracted more than 7,700 graduating students with more than 1,800 job vacancies from more than 70 enterprises.

State-owned companies at the event attracted much interest as students made stability the priority of their job hunt.

This year, many enterprises are offering high salaries and opportunities for promotion to attract new professionals. Educational institutions are favored by job seekers, with some offering an annual pay as high as 350,000 yuan ($51,660).

According to the Beijing Education Commission, the capital is planning at least 45 more job fairs for graduating college students around the city and online.
