In summer 2015, CHPAMS initiated a career development webinar series, “Jump-start Your Career”, to bridge academic institutes in China and public health professionals all over the globe via online conference platform. It provides a convenient and efficient communication platform for both hiring institutes and potential job seekers beyond geographical boundaries.
In general, a typical webinar event lasts for two hours and contains information sessions for two institutes, each including presentations and Q&As. The presentations given by institute leaders cover a variety of topics, such as general introduction about the schools, hiring plan and criteria, and employment and development plans. The school leadership’s participation in the event demonstrates great support and sincerity towards talent recruitment and global cooperation. In addition, current young faculties who recently relocated back to China can share their experiences with the webinar participants. The Q&A at the end of each session enables direct communication to further the discussion.
This series has successfully launched two events for four top universities in China. For the kickoff event on May 11th, 2015, the recruiting organizations and speakers included:
