The Ministry of Education launched college graduate recruitment week on Monday.
The event, which aims to expand employment opportunities and help graduates overcome employment issues caused by the epidemic, began both online and offline in Henan, Beijing, Jilin, Shandong, Chongqing and Yunnan.
The offline events are expected to provide more than 600,000 positions, while the online employment service will offer more than 800,000 job vacancies, the ministry said.
Some 15,000 online and offline job fairs are expected across the country during the week.
China will have a record 10.76 million college graduates this year, 1.67 million more than last year, according to the ministry.
A series of events will be held throughout August to ensure graduates are able to find well-paid jobs and keep the employment situation stable.
The ministry will work with universities and 12 recruitment agencies to host the events. University administrators are encouraged to visit companies to broaden employment opportunities for graduates.
The ministry will encourage graduates to work at small and medium-sized enterprises and at the grassroots level and will provide specific employment services for students from low-income families and those with disabilities to make sure there are at least three jobs available to choose from.
