  P.S. Student’s words

  2015 doctoral students Fatima Zahra AINOU of the BIT School of Management and Economics: Although there is still time before I graduate, when I received the notice of the Job Fair for BIT Foreign Students, I decided immediately to attend the Fair so as to gain an in-depth understanding of the Chinese high-tech enterprises. This activity moved me, as we foreign students are meeting with a lot of problems in employment in China and communicating with the Chinese enterprises. But Cirrus Project aims to solve the problems, which is helpful for foreign students. I think that providing an employment service platform for foreign students and China enterprises and carrying out matchmaking activities can not only make foreign students’ understanding China enterprises better, but also provide support and help for Chinese enterprises. I hope in the future we can establish Zhongguancun Industrial Agglomeration Area and let China's high and new technology be recognized worldwide.

  

  2016 doctoral students HASSAN MOHAMED JAMAL HASSAN IBRHAIM of the BIT School of Information and Electronics: The Matchmaking meeting of Cirrus Project and the Job Fair for BIT Foreign Students benefit me a lot. This activity was pretty nice, as it allowed our foreign students and the China’s high-tech enterprises to communicate and get to know each other for the first time. Thanks for the support and help that BIT provides for our foreign students.

  

  2015 master student Kim Hyunjeong of the BIT School of Life Science: I appreciate for this chance provided by the Office of International Students. I had prepared ahead of time according to the lists of enterprises the school provided and did a thorough research on those companies on the lists. The consultation in the Job Fair was well targeted and I have made acquaintance with staffs of those companies and communicated with them. I hope that BIT can provide more chances like this Job Fair for foreign students.

  

  Exchange student Li Guanhua from Electronic Science and Technology of the BIT School of Information and Electronics: the Job Fair for BIT Foreign Students is a rare opportunity. In the Fair, every company had the simple but detailed introduction, main development direction of company, talents they need and the areas they want to further develop in. Through these, I have a relatively full understanding of the Zhongguancun high-tech enterprises. Besides, through this Job Fair, I realize that I need to improve quickly. The matchmaking meeting and the Job Fair surely deserves a praise and more support.

  

  Exchange student Xie Youjie from Marketing of the BIT School of Management and Economics: Thanks for the treasured employment and Internship chance provided by BIT. The Fair brought the high-tech technology to campus and the staff there can communicate with foreign students in English, which was pretty awesome. In the Fair, there were enterprises of all areas, which provided more choices for us. I hope Cirrus Project can help more foreign students in China and I also hope I can earn the internship in my ideal enterprises.
