Whether you need to improve your resume, get career advice, or prepare for a job interview, Peking University Career Development Center (CDC) is always here to help. Learn how CDC can help you boost your career.
One-on-one Career Counseling
Guanghua CDC has been providing one-on-one career coaching and counseling services since September 2003. The length of each session is one hour. CDC consultants provide personalized advice to students and help students explore career options, develop job search strategies and improve self-marketing skills such as resume writing and interview skills.
Interested students can make an appointment with our CDC career consultants by sending an e-mail to CDC at email@example.com with your personal information, convenient time, latest CV (mandatory), and Career Leader assessment report (optional).
Information Session & Job Fairs
CDC strives to develop and maintain relationships with a large number of employers from a wide range of industries and fields. Hundreds of companies come to Guanghua to recruit students every year. CDC facilitates on-campus presentations and job fairs in order to provide students with valuable opportunities to explore diverse career paths, learn about prospective employers and their job opportunities, and build professional networks with company representatives.
Internships & IPP Projects
Internships and practicum projects are a proven way to gain relevant knowledge, skills, and experience while establishing important connection in the field. Internships are also a way to get your feet and find out if a specific field is something you could see yourself doing as a fill-time job.
Most companies recruit interns from Guanghua for their staffing needs in the summer. However, some companies recruit part-time interns throughout the year.
Go to the “Download Center” for reading materials on how to find internships, how to avoid common internship mistakes, and how to get the most of your internships.
Consulting projects are designed specifically for MBA students by the MBA Program. Please find more information on IPP projects from the MBA Office.

Networking is a skill that will not only be critical to your job search, but will prove valuable for the rest of your career. It is the process of developing professional relationships with individuals who can assist you with career planning and development.
CDC conducts plenty of networking and sharing events for our students. Industry experts, HR professionals, Guanghua alumni are all invited to campus to share their insights on industries, career management, and personal career stories with our students.
Through a series of activities, which include CEO Forum, industry insight talk, alumni sharing, skill set workshop and company visit, CDC prepares students for future hiring and builds up talent pipeline for the recruiting partners.
