Beijing rolled out measures recently in an effort to ensure its graduates' employment target rate is at least 95 percent by the end of the year.
Jointly released by the Beijing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, Beijing Municipal Education Commission and the Beijing Municipal Finance Bureau, the measures are set to widen employment channels and help college graduates search for suitable jobs in the capital, the Beijing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau said on Friday.
The measures say that 2020 Beijing graduates can apply for subsidies from social security for at most three years, if they choose to be self-employed when graduating. Small and medium-sized enterprises also can apply for subsidies if they employ Beijing graduates.
Those from the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions and Taiwan province, and those returning from overseas study also can benefit, enjoying equal opportunities in employment and entrepreneurship services, according the authorities.
