CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINA
Serving as a hub for the Columbia community abroad and at home, Beijing Global Center is committed to equipping the university students with global experience and local opportunities through our partner network, helping them fulfill individual values, and assisting with their career development.

STUDENT CAREER DEVELOPMENT
In the face of global challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemics, the student's future development has been at the center of the Beijing Center's priorities since 2020. We offer Columbia students and alumni a variety of career development services, including virtual career fairs, industry insight panels, weekly job release columns, and global virtual internship initiatives to help them explore career interests, fulfill professional needs, and advance individual career competence.
We are committed to creating an exclusive platform for Columbia talents to connect with employers faster and more directly. In partnership with Columbia Engineering Graduate Career Placement Center, GSAS Compass, SPS Career Design Lab, and CBS Career Management Center, we've designed and delivered 8 virtual career fairs tailored to different schools and programs providing over 1,800 current students and alumni with first-hand professional resources and one-on-one networking opportunities.
