Abstract

China's economic progress has been meteoric in recent years, leading numerous students to pursue their academic majors overseas. The objective of this article is to investigate the influence of international study experiences on the career prospects of Chinese students upon their return, encapsulating both the beneficial and detrimental effects. This research aims to provide robust guidance for Chinese students contemplating international study. Utilizing extensive data and market research, this paper initially elucidates the contemporary circumstances of Chinese international students returning home to seek employment. Subsequently, it delves into the various pros and cons of an international study experience with respect to job hunting, amalgamating existing data and literature. Lastly, detailed interviews with two returnee students shed light on their job-hunting experiences. This research shows that learning abroad cannot be categorized as univocal good or bad; the benefits of studying abroad come with accompanying challenges. The most important thing is to choose the path that suits students based on their circumstances rather than follow popular trends.
