Young Swiss in China – Event on Career Opportunities, 30 April

After the last event, where the participants learned to prepare traditional Chinese dishes, this event was more focused on starting or continuing a career and work life here in Shanghai.

Young Swiss in China, supported by swissnex China, invited Mr. Nicolas Milonas and Mr. Florian Fêche, two headhunters with a long time experience, to give the invited guest a smart overview of opportunities in China for young professionals. If already a lot of foreigners are established in Shanghai they said, the second tiers cities of China are really attractive, and there is still a lot to accomplish in those cities. China represents a career booster for young professionals; they have access to a management position at least two times faster than in Europe.
