DescriptionThe uncertain futures featured by the exponential technologies (or the Fourth Industrial Revolution) and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have widely entered the discourse of university graduates’ employment. In specific, how should universities prepare their students for uncertain futures? The situation might be more complicated for Chinese university students because the labor market awaiting them intertwines the prominent influence of higher education expansion on employment, the increasingly involution-oriented competitions, and the impacts of the current pandemic and new technologies. In this presentation, I will share several of my research studies on university graduate employment to provide insights for higher education stakeholder groups to prepare students for uncertain futures. More importantly, I hope this sharing can help student audiences be prepared and see their career and personal development pathways amid the uncertainties.
