Careers and Jobs in China

For LSE graduates in China there are two useful LSE supported activities, which should assist alumni in seeking a first job or looking to develop one's career further.

Careers Fairs in China (Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong)

Since 2006 LSE has organised career fairs in Beijing and Hong Kong, with the addition of Shanghai in 2007. The careers fairs are usually held in late August/early September each year. Around 30-35 major global companies participate in the fairs, with the addition of several leading Chinese companies in more recent years.

The fairs are open to all LSE alumni, and soon-to-graduate LSE students, usually with 0-2 years of work experience. The careers fairs in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong are invitation ONLY events. All interested LSE students and alumni need to submit their CV and request permission to attend. All companies participating receive a booklet of CVs in advance of the fairs.

The 2016 careers fairs will take place in mid-late August 2016, with specific dates appearing online in due course. Interested LSE students can view some details on previous China careers fairs.

For any companies in China, overseas or domestic, interested in participating in the LSE China career fairs or other career fairs with LSE, register and log-in to LSE's CareerHub for employers.

Job Postings - LSE China Alumni Web-board

LSE alumni registered for the China based web-network will also have access to the job postings, which are regularly placed on the website. LSE alumni in China work in executive head-hunting agencies and place job openings that would be of specific relevance to other LSE alumni on the China web-board. It is also possible for alumni to look through the weblist of alumni contacts or post a short message for other alumni in their industry sector to contact them.
