China Hosts Massive Post-Olympics Job Fair

When a country spends seven years getting ready for the Olympics, a whole lot of jobs must be created along the way. In fact, Chinese officials estimate that since 2001, 600,000 Olympic-associated jobs were created each year. Now that the big games are over, China's labor force wants to use the skills to transition into new employment. The government is happy to help, setting up a massive two-day job fair.

About 100,000 Chinese are expected to attend the fair, which kicked off yesterday. While access to companies ready to hire is promising, it must be hard to make a lasting impression among such a sea of people. Hopefully the job seekers have some memorable resumes!

Yikes. I hate crowds. I'm claustrophobic and have a fear of being trampled. When my husband and I go to concerts I make him get seats so I don't have to be down with the crowd/mosh pit, which is where he'd rather be.

i think that it's a wonderful thing if they are able to use this as a stepping stone to help open more jobs to the population. i think that a lot of people outside of China feared that there would be all these temp jobs for the games, in construction and other labor unions, and now just hearing that there are still a lot more jobs being created instills a new sense of maintenance in the country. i hope that there is some good that will come out of this.

It was giving me flashbacks to every trip to Taiwan I've ever made. I don't usually mind crowds much, but I draw the line when I can't move 2 inches without someone elbowing me right in the boob. That's a huge glut of job seekers, by the way.

Ugh, looking at pictures of that huge crowd is giving me flashbacks to the last music festival I went to.
