Sept. 9, 2021 -- Authorities have launched a program in Shijiazhuang in Hebei province, to help disabled graduates find jobs, according to the China Disabled Persons' Federation.
Organized in conjunction with the Education and Human Resources ministries, the program signals the start of a nationwide initiative to help disabled graduates secure employment as record numbers will enter the job market this year, the federation said in a media release.
Around 50 companies based in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei city cluster attended the event on Wednesday along with hundreds of students from Shijiazhuang.
According to the federation, 25,023 disable students graduated this year, the highest figure recorded to date.
It has ordered local branches to prioritize the task of rolling out personalized plans to facilitate employment for disabled students.
Zhang Haidi, the federation's chairwoman, said work has great significance and sustainable employment helps young people with disabilities contribute to the nation while realizing their own dreams.
Cheng Kai, one of the federation's vice-chairmen, said it will work toward providing targeted, one-to-one assistance for job hunters. Efforts will also be made to encourage businesses and nonprofits to join the initiative.
