It is believed that, in terms of producing college graduates, China has outstripped the United States and Europe in college graduate numbers (Schleicher, 2016). In 2014, a record 7.49 million new graduates entered the labor market. 92.1 percent of them had found jobs in the six months after graduation, and the full-time employment rate was 79.2 percent (MyCOS Research, 2015). This means over a million fresh graduates are precariously employed or unemployed.
