“How Can I Use My China Knowledge? Where Are the Jobs?” Young people who have invested time, energy and resources to study China and its language often ask these questions as they contemplate entering the job market. As part of its mission to strengthen American capacity to understand China, the US-China Strong Foundation, in cooperation with the Sigur Center for Asian Studies at George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs, is launching a new initiative to address an important, practical problem commonly faced by talented young people: how do they put their China skills to use in their careers?
We will be inviting 125 college juniors, seniors, and graduate students with China studies backgrounds to join us on the campus of the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. from May 30 through June 1, 2018. Successful applicants for this inaugural CHINA CAREERS SUMMIT will participate in a jam-packed program that will introduce them to the full array of careers in which their skills and China knowledge can be useful.
A glance at the CHINA CAREERS SUMMIT <xhttps://www.chinacareerssummit.org> will give you an idea of the rich, interactive, and practical event that we are designing.
We invite you to publicize this opportunity to your network of China-focused students.
