Why College Students Have Difficulty Finding Jobs


Nowadays, more and more college students have difficulty obtaining an ideal job after graduation. I think this phenomenon stems from the fact that they cant develop themselves as the commands of the society.

by Cai Xiaojun


From the two reasons mentioned above, I draw a conclusion that college graduates should set a goal wisely and enrich themselves with more demanded skills to compete. The thousand-li journey starts from one foot. Dont hurry among the crowds, and you will succeed in your own road.

---by Hang Mingming

Why College Students Have Difficulty Finding Jobs

  • A recent survey shows that about 30% college students cant find a suitable job after their graduation from college. And the number seems to be increasing

  • The causation of this phenomenon lies in three aspects . First, our society cant provide sufficient job vacancies for the graduates because of the economic depression and the reform of

labor force division. Second, the

academic subjects fail to meet the needs of a certain job. What they have learned in college fails far behind the practical working requirements. Third, college students are too particular about their future job. Many graduates only want to have a job with high salary. They refuse to work in the area of harsh living and working conditions.

  • The above mentioned analyses tell us that the causes are various. But if college students dont take personal interests into consideration too much and if they change their employment concept, they can still have chance to find a job.

Average number of hours a student spends on the computer per week

  • Great changes have taken place in student use of computers in the university. The key findings taken from the bars are as follows.The hours the student spent on computers per week skyrocketed from about 2 in 1990 to 20 in 2000, more than 9 times higher. This rapid increase proves that students were in closer contact with computers.

  • To account for this phenomenon, people have come up with various reasons as listed below. In the first place, with the drop in prices of computers, more students could afford computers, therefore they could

spend much more time with computers. In the second place, the computers were applied to wider and wider use and students had to take advantage of this modern invention. Last but not the least important, the development of society pushed computers into more dormitories.

  • Whatever the reason, there are still some problems with student use of computers. To begin with, many students still have no computers of their own. What's more, many students use computers only to play e-games and browse porn websites, which causes harm to their mind. 172 words

Investment in Beijing from Different Countries and Regions

  • 44% 19.2%16%

  • Since China opened its door to the outside world in 1979, Beijing has made remarkable results in attracting foreign business to invest in joint ventures. According to the pie chart, the investors in different enterprises come from 26 countries and regions. Hong Kong investment ranks first, accounting for 44 per cent of the total. Japans investment makes up 19.2 per cent, putting it in second spot. Third is the United States at 16 per cent.

  • It is generally believed that Beijing benefits a lot from the outside investment. In the first place, a large number of joint ventures have been set up, which contributes greatly to the development of Capital Economy. Secondly, the foreign-invested enterprises offer a lot of jobs to the residents in Beijing. This in turn relieves the problem of laid-off workers in the city. Finally, the high-tech enterprises in the capital will grow rapidly as Beijing enjoys the same preferential policies as coastal cities open to the outside world.

  • As far as the measures to attract outside investment are concerned, I think they are as follows. On the one hand, we should make special efforts to improve the investment environment. On the other hand, we should take advantage of this opportunity to run the present foreign-invested enterprises efficiently.

  • Directions: the table below shows the number of road accidents which occurred in Britain in different places and the ages of the injured persons. Write a report describing the information shown below.

  • Road accidents in Britain

  • when /where accidents occurred Age

  • The chart above organizes data about road accidents involving children in Britain by and by when and where the accidents occurred. It can be seen that the incidence of accidents decreases as the childrens age increase and that age correlates with the circumstances surrounding the accident.

  • For all ages, the most common situation leading to accident is playing in the street but young children were particularly affected.

Children between the ages of 5-7 seemed to get into accidents while engaged in activities appropriate to their age, such as shopping for their parents or going home from school. In fact, this age group accounted for the most road accidents of all. Children between 8 and age 11 had the most accidents cycling in the street. After age 11, the number of accidents dropped considerably in all situations.

  • From the chart, we get to know that playing in the street is the most common and universal site of accidents of all ages, but the risks that other sites and situations present vary with the childrens ages.

  • As is shown by the two graphs above, the average price of eggs was on the rise from 1990 to 1995 and the demand for them increased correspondingly. The graphs also indicate that during the period from 1995 to 2000 the price eggs declined, and so did the demand. The phenomenon is quite strange and worth studying. According to the law of market economy, the increase in demand results in higher prices. That is to say, when prices climb, the demand decreases, and when prices fall, the demand grows. Now the reality was just the other way round.

  • The reasons for this strange phenomenon are obvious. During the period from 1990 to 1995 with the development of our socialist market economy peoples income, bonus and different kinds of benefits, increased rapidly. Though the price of eggs rose gradually, the demand for them grew sharply, too. On the other hand, when the demand for eggs reached a certain point, it stopped rising because people began to spend more and more money on clothing, recreations and tours round the country and even round the world. It is generally assumed that

the expenses for tours accounted for a great part of the total consumption of the people in our country from 1995 to 2000. As a result, it seemed reasonable that the demand for eggs declined during the same period of time.

  • As far as Im concerned, with the domestic poultry farming continuing to develop, the price of eggs is likely to decline because the demand for them is limited and the fall in consumption of them is also inevitable. (270 words)
