On November 28th, the 2019 session of the National College Graduates Employment and Entrepreneurship Network Video Conference was held in Beijing. The Party Member and Vice Minister of the Ministry of Education, Lin Huiqing, attended the meeting and delivered a speech. In order to watch the conference via video, a sub-meeting venue was set in our university. Attending the video conference were Party Secretary Wang Hansong, Standing committee of Party committee and Vice president Zhu Hong, the relevant principals from Admissions and Employment Office, Academic Affairs Office, schools and faculties, and the students' tutors.
Lin Huiqing pointed out the necessity to combine Xi Jinping's New Era of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and the spirit of National Education Meeting. Employment is the basis of living standard, stability, morality, service quality and the development of intellectual world. It's also a need to improve the political position of college graduates in employment and entrepreneurship, and implement the decision-making arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council.
The number of 2019 national college graduates are expected to be 8.34 million. Despite the complicated and severe situation in employment and entrepreneurship, or the increasing uncertainties and unstable factors, China’s economic operation is sound and stable, the demand for college graduates is generally stable, and the entrepreneurial environment is continuously optimized. We have the conditions and ability to cope with various difficulties and challenges. Colleges and universities should focus on the key part to promote good work in employment and entrepreneurship of the new graduates. First, expand the new space for grassroots employment with greater efforts. We should implement policies such as the compensation for grassroots employment fees, and increase the scale of central grassroots projects with relevant departments. We should learn General Secretary Xi Jinping's letter to the newly enrolled students of Nankai University and the spirit of encouragement to encourage more college students to make contributions to the army. Also, we should grasp the major opportunities for rural development and promote the strategy of graduates serving the rural revitalization. The second is to open up new channels of employment with a broader perspective. We will send more graduates to make construction for the Belt and Road initiative, the coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, and the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt. We will give full play to the role of the largest employment container in the service industry, and guide graduates to the modern service industry such as cultural creativity. We will also build a working mechanism that adapts to the development of new kinetic energy and new forms of employment, and supports graduates to work in new formats and encourage graduates to work in international organizations. The third is to develop new kinetic energy of “double innovation” with more practical measures. It's a need to deepen the reform of innovation and entrepreneurship education in colleges and universities, and integrate innovation and entrepreneurship education into the talent training system. We should propagandize and implement support policies such as entrepreneurship and training subsidies, retention of student status, and increase investment in venues, funds, guidance, and services. The last is to create a new connotation of employment services with better quality. The new "Internet + Employment" model should be widely used to promote accurate docking of supply and demand. We will strengthen career development education, carry out special training for graduates with employment difficulties, and establish a precise one-on-one group assistance mechanism for all employees. We should focus on the implementation of the "three prohibitions" requirements, curb any form of employment discrimination and prevent employment fraud and accelerate the construction of a professional, professional and expert employment and entrepreneurship guidance team.
We must pay close attention to the implementation of responsibilities and implement the "top-ranking project" for employment; to early warning and prevention, formulate specific response plans for possible changes, and establish policy reserves in advance; to supervision and rectification, implement employment statistics of requirements, find out and punish those who cheated their duty; to propaganda and guidance, promote the advanced model of graduate employment, guide graduates to actively take the initiative to work, and make contributions to the grassroots.
