The “Most Proactive University Career Services Team,” award given by the Global University China Career Union.

The University was selected as the “Most Proactive University Career Services Team,” by the Global University China Career Union (GUCCU) and Lockin China at the 2018 Global University Career Development Conference.

This award is presented to the university that actively seeks cooperation with Chinese enterprises by effectively assisting students with future employment through strong job-seeking initiatives. The award is a collective University of Rochester award, but also highlights the cross collaboration between the Gwen M. Greene Center for Career Education and Connections and Simon Business School.

“We are looking to grow our partnership with Lockin China in order to better support our Chinese students who are returning to China, but also to better engage one of the most exciting and fastest-growing job markets in the world,” says Joe Testani, assistant dean and executive director for the Greene Center. “In recent years, we have devoted more of our attention to understand the needs of our Chinese students studying at UR and how recruiting and hiring works in China. We are excited about the possibilities this could lead to.”

“The number of international employment opportunities continues to grow, so in order to ensure that our students have access these, it’s in our best interest to work directly with international employers,” says Jane Gatewood, vice provost for global engagement. “Working around the world opens doors for our students, and since a growing number of our students hail from international locations, we have to do all we can to meet their changing needs. The greater connection we have with those interested in hiring our students, the easier it will be to help students and graduates navigate the job-seeking process, which looks very different across markets and locales.”

The GUCCU unites the career centers of global universities and thousands of Chinese employers to provide career help to Chinese overseas students, as well as other international students and alumni who are willing to seek opportunities in China. Among its goals is to allow universities to understand the situation of China’s economic development and talents demand status of enterprises in China, and help Chinese returnees and foreign students better understand the increasingly competitive job market in China.

Lockin China is a global recruitment platform specializing in supporting Chinese overseas students.
