The social and economic evolution of China over the past 60 years has brought many changes to how Chinese people view work, and the personal matter of selecting an occupation or calling. Initially, occupations fell into a kind of scale, rising from initial positions as workers and servicemen, to businessmen, entertainers and intellectuals. In more recent years, the social and technological advances of the new economy have increased the demand for skilled and creative work, new and transferred technical specialties, and emerging public service roles. A so-called "good job," based on purely political and social factors, is a notion that has had to move over as Chinese people enjoy more freedom of choice. Multiple standards, including economic factors, now carve out the territory of work worth doing. Options in career paths have never been greater.
The October breakfast meeting of US-China Business Connections (UCBC) will feature Rodney Hiel, Managing Director of Asia Business Consulting, who will present Selling to China - Marketing Strategies for Today's Economy.
