C: how was your education going on in Australia?
S: I'm going to graduate this summer.
C: where are you going to work then, in Australia or back in China?
S: I'm planning to return to China after graduation.
C: why are you choosing to leave a foreign country? Many people are reluctant to leave the superior living environment abroad.
S: well, I think personal development is much more important than simply having a superior living environment.
C: yeah, China's developing so fast and development opportunities can be found almost in every corner of the country.
S: absolutely, many Chinese enterprises are going global, and they are in great need of excellent returnees to help them with their overseas business.
C: the repidly expanding economy has encouraged many students to pack their bags amd head for home.
S: that's right. Most of the Chinese students pursuing education in Australia intend to return to China.
C: how's your job searching going?
S: I've landed a job in a foreign company's Shanghai branch , but the pay is lower than I expected.
C: no surprise. The subject you studied abroad is not that hot here in China.
S: yeah, after coming back, I've found I may have to go through a period of unemployment.
C: that's normal; some of the overseas returnees couldn't find a nice job these years.
S: there are so many overseas returnees in the domestic job market now that the average salary has dropped a lot.
C: that's true, and the job market holds a more reasoanble attitude towards this group of people.
S: yeah,actually, the quality if an overseas education is not as good as we imagined.
C: employers have noticed this. That's why they have changed their attitude towards returned overseas students.
S: yeah, I have the same feeling. I've talked with many returnees; some of them can not even speak foreign languages fluently .
C: that's right. Employers will choose candidates with real talents and potentials, and they no longer care too much about whether you have a domestic or overseas diploma.
