1. Recruiting in China

Despite its amazing number of inhabitants, China is still short of talent. This shortage could be caused by a high demand from thousands of companies setting up their businesses in this country. This problem could also stem from other factors like education and demographics. According to the World Economic Forum the demand for talent in China will grow even by 5% annually through 2020 and in order to supply the recruiters with educated workforce, the country will need to spend 4% of GDP on education.

In order to recruit efficiently in China a recruiter needs to be aware which recruitment channels are most effective among Chinese professionals. According to Recruitment Intelligence Group the best way to recruit is through a personal network, during a job fair or by publishing your job listing on a popular job board. The choices that are a bit less popular and less effective are using a recruitment agency or resume upload database.

The most popular social sites currently being used in China include: Tencent, Renren (a Chinese copy of Facebook), Weibo (the Asian equivalent of Twitter) and WeChat (Asia’s most popular instant messaging site).
