The Hefei high-tech zone is home to over 90,000 companies, including 49 national "little giant" companies – those specialized in niche industries with cutting-edge technologies and great growth potential – as well as 2,548 high-tech players and 38 listed business entities.
The zone has been holding jobs fairs, visiting universities nationwide and organizing internships this year to attract future applications from college candidates.
Furthermore, employers based there have extended their recruitment to the student internship front, to strengthen the reserves of new graduates.
For example, the zone attracted some 436 professionals with master's degrees or doctorates at its first software industry internship fair at the Suzhou Institute for Advanced Research, University of Science and Technology of China or USTC in May.
In all, over 30 universities – including the USTC and the Anhui University of Technology – have signed cooperation agreements with the Hefei high-tech zone.
Moving forwards, plans are in motion for the zone to improvise its hiring process, optimize talent exchange networks and provide services to both businesses and job candidates.
