Although traditional job fairs are still the best method to land employment, many Chinese graduates would turn to guanxi or personal contacts if they encounter any obstacles in their job seeking process. Actually, asking friends and family members for help is the most reliable way to find a job. Does the practice of using connections in job hunting exist in your country?

I don't know why people think this is a Chinese problem. It is a global issue and as parcher said........the advertised jobs are mostly filled.

jobs are easier to secure if you know people......if you are bribing people in china, it is because you are not connected.
