employment, especially for college students, is of great

importance for economic development and social stability.

To better secure the employment of

graduates, government at all levels issued policies to redu

ce discriminatory practices these new

graduates may encounter when hunting for a job.

For example, the Ministry of Human

Resource and Social Security said in February that employees are not allowed to def

ine positions based on gender or to ask for a female job-seekers’ marital status, to protect women’ rights in the job market.

Also, the Ministry of Education required colleges to reinforce campus recruitment activ

ities, prohibiting discriminatory information concerning gender, nationality and college levels.

According to the ministry, the number of college graduates is projected to reach a record high of 8.34 million this year, up by 140,000 from 2018.
