The first China-Africa Career and Employment Bootcamp coming to Beijing
June is here and as every year, a significant number of international students across China will be completing their studies and preparing to enter the next stage of their lives, either back in their countries or here in China. Although some already have a clear idea about where they are headed, many of these soon-to-be graduates are still uncertain about what that next stage will look like. African students are no exception.
It is the with the aim of preparing and equipping young Africans with employability and entrepreneurship skills that DUAPA Africa has partnered with the Shanghai Global Expertise and Talent Co. Ltd. and the Haidian Pioneer Park to organize the first ever China-Africa Career and Employment Bootcamp in Beijing. The event will be held on June 16, 2018 at the Zhongguancun Haidian Pioneer Park under the theme “‘Employment and Entrepreneurship: Opportunities for young Africans within the China-Africa Cooperation.” It will bring together more than 200 participants including, African students and young professionals in China from over 40 countries across all the 6 regions of Africa, industry experts, Chinese government officials and officials from African embassies in China, as well as companies seeking to recruit specifically young Africans for their business operations in Africa, China and across the world.
The China-Africa Career and Employment Bootcamp consists of a series of well-thought out activities that will run for four hours, including a presentation on China’s employment and entrepreneurship policies for foreign talents, career workshops and coaching sessions, as well on-site interviews and recruitment by more than 10 Chinese companies.
Through those different activities, the organizers hope that in addition to gaining core skills that will enhance their employment and entrepreneurship prospects, participants will also be able to secure job, internship, training and business opportunities with key Chinese and African companies. At a broader scale, this event is in line with the Africa’s Agenda 2063, the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) roadmap, China’s Belt and Road Initiative and the Sustainable development Goals, as it contributes to harnessing the demographic dividend that comes with the increasingly youthful population of Africa, through skills development and job creation.
