Reporter visited a number of large job fairs in Wuhan and had a random interview with 35 companies, of which the recruiters of 32 companies said that they won’t consider postgraduates if university graduates are competent to the job.

Ms. Huang who is responsible for recruitment in a real estate company explained that, "There is no need to spend more money to recruit a postgraduate for a job if we can find a university graduate to do it."
