First of all, Many employers choose university students in more or less errors. To begin with, there are too much attention to diploma. Many employment agencies believe that the higher the better. Candidate qualifications, and result in employment of staff and capacity and jobs are incompatible, or talent to waste, for example, some units of graduate recruitment software for the unit only simple word processing, typing and so on. Some real work ability and can not be directly equated diploma. Many college students in undergraduate or postgraduate business are better than the operational capacity of poor. Besides, there exists the sex discrimination, obviously at a disadvantage female students. Many employers consider the physiological factors of female students, such as marriage factors, achievement motivation, and labor protection insurance of women workers expenses and so on. The cost of future work of female undergraduate is major more than male students, which is the main reason for female University of employment. In addition, source area discrimination. Moreover, many employers take into account the unit's operations are closely connected with the local level, to recruit college students are familiar with local dialects and customs, and even some personal relationships, There are also regional discrimination biogenic practice local protectionism in local government, result in conducive to fair competition in college students. At last, lack of experience is the biggest disadvantage of university graduates, many enterprises have difficulties in employment, eager to recruit a capable side and hoped soon to bring changes to the enterprise, while the college students can not meet the employer requirements soon. Students ignored the potential employer and plasticity, in fact, experience has always nurtured in practice, students had a higher theoretical level, they undergo a short-term.

Secondly, college students themselves have many problems. First of all, many graduates find jobs have a certain certificate, diploma, resume for job convenience, some students through their diligence and hard work in the college, striving to obtain the relevant certificate, while not working- hard are use hard students through opportunistic or fraud to cheat initial trust of companies, the overall image of the university graduates can cause certain damage. Second, the overall quality of students has decreased. Public Universities in recent years have expanded enrollment coupled with surge in private colleges, enrollment scores continue to decrease, and many university students do not study seriously, manipulative ability, lack of practical experience, downward trend in the overall quality of students. Thirdly, the students positioned itself biased. They want to find high income, with good treatment unit. Since China's economic development in different parts of the imbalance, between the eastern and western regions, coastal areas and large gaps between the Mainland of university graduates choose to work areas, excessive focus on Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and other hot spots, resulting in the region significantly increased the employment pressure. At the same time, Students "high not a low not to" seriously affect the psychological orientation of employment. According BEIJING (July 23, 2004) reported that second quarter of 2004 the most difficult to find work undergraduates. Junior secondary and below education, high school, college, undergraduate, master's and higher level education in the job who were 0.96,0.92,0.91,0.87,1.42 magnification. Junior competition is 96 100 jobs, while only 87 of 100 undergraduate students compete for jobs(同æ-¶¼Œå¤å­¦ç”Ÿ"高不成¼Œä½Žä¸å°±"心理定位严重影响就业。据中æ-°ç½‘(2004å¹´7月23æ-¥)报道¼Œ2004年第二季度本ç‘生最难找工作。初中及以下æ-‡åŒ-程度、高中、å¤ä¸“、本ç‘、硕士及以上æ-‡åŒ-程度的求职人倍率分别为0.96、0.92、0.91¼Œ0.87¼Œ1.42。即100名初中生竞争96个å²-位¼Œè€Œ100名本ç‘生只有87个å²-位可供竞争¼Œé€ æˆæœ¬ç‘学就业难的最主要原因之一是"目前本ç‘生'高不成、低不就'"的心理状态。) Fourth, the job search is uncertain. Many students participate in a variety of personnel through the exchange would "cast a wide net" approach, or hope that an acquaintance "care relationship", "looking for opportunities" to Lift the "golden rice bowl", not good at "selling" themselves, not for their own practical advantages, by focusing on understanding the real needs of employers, to improve the employment rate.

Faced such a tough employment problem, some students may feel upset. Can we find jobs in the future, as many students worring about? Next, we will talk about the solution, which contains a system of employer, students, universities.

First, an employer response is important. Selection criteria should be reasonable. Employers according to their size, development, post the actual, thinning job responsibilities, in accordance with job requirements, develop a reasonable selection criteria, to determine quality and quantity of recruits. Second, determine the scientific recruitment process. To determine the recruitment assessment process, development of assessment content, assessment procedures in accordance with, the basis of merit. Basically accomplished through the following three steps: first, primaries should In accordance with job requirements, assessment mandatory targets. Such as age, education, experience, etc., to check citizen ID card, graduation certificate and the corresponding ability to prove results and the experience of award-winning show, etc., to determine initial eligibility of candidates; second, test. Including oral, written, practical and other forms, it should mainly relate to operational capacity assessment; third, re-testing.

At the same time, a good physical fitness, health is very important. Otherwise, human resources decision-making capacity will be reduced. Second, the strengthening of social practice is also important. Students can make use of leaving school to participate actively in social practice, at the same time, they will learn the theoretical knowledge and practical work, and improve the capacity of dealing with practical problems, accumulated work experience. Third, college students should have the correct positioning of employment. Their job search should face the reality, the current students can help talent exchange, network resources, and ways to find suitable jobs, and bold initiative to sell out their true talent, treasure and seize the hard-won jobs. At last, change employment outlook -find job firstly choose job then. if students are preoccupying with whether the immediate job status is satisfactory or not, they will lose many opportunities to start. they can be accumulated in the course of employment prior work experience, so that greater self-worth are enhanced for future work and then they will find the ideal foundation.
