Cold Winter For Law Graduates
From China Daily:
On the last day of 2009, Snow Li, a 24-year-old law school postgraduate student, arose at 7 am and went online to search for company information.
Li wasn’t preparing a court case but instead getting ready for an interview at a local bank’s law department. Since she finished her second year at China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) last July, Li, like many of her classmates, has been looking for work. She sent out nearly 50 resumes to State-owned companies, banks and law firms, but this is only the third interview she has received.
“Most of my classmates started looking for a job in July, but none of them has had an offer so far,” said Li.
“I really want to be a lawyer or get a job related to law. But if I can’t find one eventually, I will have to turn to some administrative work or jobs less relevant to law.”
