WUHAN -- Authorities will offer 250,000 job positions for college graduates in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, as the number of new graduates reaches a new high this year.

With 83 higher education institutions, Wuhan will see 317,000 college graduates this year, a year-on-year increase of 9.3 percent, said Wu Gang, with the city's bureau of human resources and social security.

Wu said that the city will provide 1,000 yuan (about $141) in subsidies per graduate student to small, medium- and micro-sized enterprises, as well as social organizations that offer jobs.

The city has taken a variety of measures to attract graduates to primary-level jobs, including increasing job in communities, as well as positions as civil servants, Wu said, adding that the city also encourages entrepreneurship with higher subsidies.
