Taizhou in East China's Zhejiang province has taken a number of steps to help college graduates overcome employment challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taizhou University, for example, has reached cooperation agreements in talent cultivation with more than 300 enterprises. To date, the university has organized eight online job fairs for graduates, with another six in the pipeline.

In addition, the city has launched a program which aims to offer internship to 10,000 college students. Specifically, authorities aim to attract 5,000 college students to take part in the internship program as well as designate 80 internship bases across the city this year.

To date, a total of 2,168 enterprises from Taizhou have released 37,540 job positions. The city's demand for talents in fields including manufacturing and medical chemistry is particularly large.

The number of college graduates in the nation reached a record high 10.76 million this year, which, together with former graduates who have yet to find jobs, will add to employment pressure.

More than 4,000 students will graduate from Taizhou University this year, according to Ma Bin, deputy head of the Student Affairs Office at the university.
