Xiong Qinghua starts to look once more for a good job at a job fair in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province, June 8, 2013. He felt depressed having submitted 4 resumes. The 23-year-old Xiong graduated from Jiangxi Agricultural University, along with 6.99 million fresh graduates from college this year, but he hadn't found a satisfactory job.

Xiong followed his girlfriend, who has found a job, to Hangzhou earlier this month. Even in the same city, he still doesn't want to depart far away from his girlfriend, making it harder for him to find a job. He gave up a matchable inter opportunity which can provide 3500 yuan ($570) monthly salary,

Therefore, Xiong had to spent almost every hour on job hunting. But after participating in job fairs, making online applications and undergoing several interviews, he still hasn't gotten a job. After each interview which may cost him two hours on public buses, most companies then let him wait for the result, and often didn't even reply.

In the recent recruitment fair, he found his chance getting slimmer as many job candidates are master's graduates or returned overseas Chinese. He may eventually end up going back to the company where he earned an intern opportunity.
