With an increasing number of Chinese students choosing to study abroad, an international degree is no longer enough to catch a hiring manager’s eye. Surveys have shown that over 85% of Chinese international students do not receive any career experience during their study time in the UK, and this reduces their competitiveness in both the UK and Chinese job markets. It is common to see talented Chinese students struggling to find employment, and the main challenges of finding placement in the UK are linked to:

  • Comparatively weak speaking and expression skills
  • Lack of understanding of the UK job market
  • Lack of critical thinking, professional communication, and teamwork skills
  • High demand for student placements with steep competition from domestic and EU students

Overall, the key factors which help a candidate to stand-out are English fluency, advanced soft skills, diverse work experience (especially from the UK), and a deep understanding of international professional life. These skills also lay out the foundations for your future career both within and outside of China. Successful internship experiences tend to broaden one’s horizons and play a part in receiving more employment offers – over 67% of interns in the UK receive return offers, and international students must be especially keen to advance themselves in all facets of professional development. The unfortunate reality is that being an advanced academic student has waned as a method of accelerating one’s career and given way to past work experience in importance.

The Miiito careers office helps you to maximize the value of studying abroad. We offer you practical career information not found in textbooks and help you gain rich internship, placement, and part-time experience. Aside from improving your professional communication abilities, soft skills, and written communication, we aim to prove you are truly international talent.

Testimonials

Frank Li

Management BSc

“非常感谢Miiito的辅导。导师非常亲切,也很有耐心。原本对CV的排版和要点几乎没有任何概念。学姐分门别类很详细地一一做了讲解,让我意识到了我存在的问题,以及如何修改CV中的细节,让自己的CV脱颖而出,而不是埋没在无数份求职CV中。因为目前还是大一阶段,导师的辅导让我对在英求职有了大致的概念和框架,对以后的发展也是非常有好处的,让我深受启发。非常感谢学姐的帮忙。”

Yara Zhang

Food Sciences BSc

“非常感谢导师在繁忙的工作之余给我传授经验之道,感慨于导师缜密的思维和超强的洞察力,在极短的时间内一针见血地帮我分析出在英国求职期间屡屡碰壁的原因。从CV出发,信息冗长,重点迷失,淡出的信息罗列虽然能够一定程度上的展示自己,却不能一招击中求职者的心。导师从自己过去的求职路谈起,到分享创业过程中角色转换成招聘者而不断求贤的过程,多角度向我展示了英国求职大背景中供求双方的立场和真是需求,我深受启发,也感染于导师自身的人格魅力。帮助很大~”

Finance, Accounting and Management BSc

“大学毕业以后在家呆了一年临时决定出国,也不知道出国为了什么。因为这一年的间隙、没有实习经验,我面对着很大的就业压力。朋友圈回国的学姐不如意的求职经历也给了我重重一击。就在这时,我留意到了Miiito针对中国留学生在英国求职找实习方面的服务的宣传,就果断决定非得去听一下试听课。听完了之后也真的是我改变的开始,Lili讲的完全就是我心里想要迫切解决的问题。因为自己一边在Miiito上口语课,了解Lili是个特别认真负责的人,就快速报名了。Lili一直陪伴着我,每次约时间谈求职的时候都是我最开心的时候,总会让我对自己更有信心,也对在英国找实习甚至工作有了把握。我也感觉到了自己的改变,越来越知道自己要什么,越来越勇敢的去面对reality attack!不同于其他所谓的微信圈频繁晒offer的求职公司,各种不靠谱,收钱前后差别对待。Miiito真的是在服务我,帮助我!每一个问题,Lili和她的团队都能给我具体细致的指导,让我觉得特别感激!印象最深刻的是遇到了学究CL指导老师,真的是每一个语法错误都不能放过,虽然每次发给他cover letter都很担心自己的错误,接受文件的时候也有几秒害怕(ಥ_ಥ),但是真的能改出一份几乎完美的求职信真的是对我的一种极大的鼓励!是对我辛苦字字句句斟酌cover letter的一种认可!我觉得学习固然重要,但是求职不可避免,我想早点去面对去准备,这样就不至于浪费大把时间后悔害怕迷茫,我认为每天都过得充实满足,知道自己要什么追求什么才是我的人生目标!感谢Miiito为我的求职所做出的努力!~\(≧▽≦)/~”
