Tianjin University Holds an Overseas Job Fair in New Zealand

On the afternoon of April 17, TJU held an overseas job fair at the University of Auckland. Over 60 students and scholars came.

Li Jiajun, the Party Secretary of TJU, was among the recruitment delegation. At the job fair, he greeted the students and scholars and said he expected that more overseas scholars would apply for jobs at TJU. He said that TJU is on the road to becoming a “Double First-Class” university. Together with the new emerging-engineering education programs, there will be more job opportunities and entrepreneurial opportunities for young talent. Talented people are always highly valued at TJU, and mechanisms are under construction in order to recruit scholars from all over the world. Scholars will be provided with a good platform, advantageous policies and a great education environment at TJU. He hoped that they would work at TJU in the future and realize their dreams.

Du Qing, Director of the Office of Human Resources, gave a detailed explanation of talent affairs, remuneration and welfare systems and recruitment approaches. He highlighted the improvement of talent-introducing systems in recent years and the Peiyang Forum for Young Scholars, a forum for young scholars to share their experience. The audience indicated a positive attitude toward TJU’s talent-introduction system and expressed their willingness to come back and work in China and at TJU. Many attendees submitted their resumes at the job fair.

Liu Wansheng, Chinese Education Consul at the PRC Consulate General in Auckland, warmly welcomed the TJU recruitment delegation and stated his willingness to exchange with TJU. He said that education in China is developing rapidly and there are a growing number of Chinese students who study abroad. He said that as the first modern university in China, TJU has made great progress on its road to becoming a “Double First-Class” university, and that the rewards are also attractive. He hoped that Chinese students who are studying abroad would improve their abilities in academic work and meet the needs of China’s development.

Xu Sidu, former Head of the Department of Thermal Engineering at TJU, now aged 82, also came to the job fair. On behalf of TJU, Li Jiajun greeted him and his family and briefly described TJU’s great achievements in recent years in talent cultivation, faculty construction, scientific research and international cooperation.
