Discussion on Employment for Graduates of Business English Specialty Abstract
Along with the quickened pace of globalization and the increasing development of international economic, the contacts between various countries become more frequent, which objectively lead to the phenomenon of the overheat of English specialty. Some college ignores the market’s absorption capacity and its practical demand for English professional in the process of its education and this makes the English graduates lost the original competitive advantage and the status. This thesis mainly analyzes and probes the employment difficulty for English graduates and thus presents some specific solutions.
Key word
Business English, graduate, employment, probe As a graduate specialized in Business English, I have a deep feeling of the present employment pressure. As with the implement of the policy of recruiting in colleges, almost 80% of all the universities in China offer English majors. The similarity of majors offered and the blind recruiting cause a large increase of English professionals in the labor market. Moreover, due to the global economic crisis, the employment of English graduate is already in a situation of oversupply. And this undoubtedly brings a big pressure to instrumental language talents. Above all, we can see that the employment situation for us Business English graduates is not very optimistic.
ⅠEmployment situation and performance of Business English graduates in recent years
After the expansion of university enrolment, English majored graduates are faced with a more severe employment situation as well as the challenge of meeting the need of the development of the market and still more, the transform of the management system and employment conception. In recent years, graduates in Business English keeps increasing, which causes a severe unbalance in the occupational pattern of Business English graduates. At the meantime, the problem of the structural contradiction of college graduates increasingly becomes prominent. And also for lack of occupational guidance, the situation of employment is more and more severe. So we can tell that the overall employment situation for Business English college students is still far from being satisfactory.
Ⅱ The reason of the employment difficulty for Business English graduates
1 The deficiency of macro policies There are still a lot of insufficiencies of personnel matters and labor security in our country. The deficiency of some relevant system and management measures is the direct reason of the employment difficulty for Business English graduates. The inaccessibility of employment information and employment channel in Business English in our country also, to some extent, hinders the employment of graduates in this major. 2 The unbalance of the structure of employment and the contradiction of supply and demand In the world today, the importance of English is beyond suspicion. But English is not a tool of communication any more, it becomes a knowledge for examination and competition. The function of English is immensely exaggerated and it is far beyond its original function of language tool. This makes student deviate from the original purpose of learning English, which obviously is not proper. We should make sure that English is merely a language tool and English education is merely part of the state education. English level should not be a threshold for talents selection. A recent news states that there are more than 3 hundred million people learning English in our country, which includes the professionals and non-professionals and accounts for one-fourths of our population. The exports predict that a few yeas later the number of people learning English in our country will exceed the overall population of English speaking countries. With such a huge number of people learning English, we wonder how is their practical application level? According to the investigation of National Foreign language Bureau, at present out country is still suffering from
a severe shortage of experts in simultaneous interpretation and translation and 90% of the jobs for qualified interpreters are still in vacancy. So people begin to wonder, with so many people learning English, why should our country in short supply of interpreters? After the market investigation, experts analyze that ever since 1999 colleges began to enlarging their enrollment, along with the quick pace of globalization and frequent contact between countries all lead to the overheat of English major. But the blindly ignorance of the market’s absorption capacity and practical needs will eventually cause the phenomenon of the bubbles of English professionals. 3 The unbalance of educational resources caused by overemphasis on English education Under China’s prevailing education system, the over-influential status of English education has caused a lot of side effects on talents training and selection. For a long period of time, English education system has occupied a large amount of manpower, material and financial resources and it plays a very important role in pushing the development of China’s economy and society. But As the matter stand, its teaching effect and input are not matching. But what should be mentioned is all the side effects on science and technology and other education system like humanities and Social Science, especially on talents training and selection caused by the prevailing English education system. For most educatees who regard English as merely a tool for communication, English is a technique but not a kind of knowledge. The over-influential status of English education causes the severe unbalance of the limited education resources. It seems that there is a shortage of skilled workers in our country, but what we see is that among so many technical schools everywhere, we can’t find a lot of really qualified ones. 4 The employment difficulty caused by student’s own problems Most students in English major study in college just for passing the grades examinations and get the certificate and thus get the graduate certificate successfully. That is why nowadays there are people called gunner, namely people who are hired to take exams for those so called talents to get the certificates. And this to some extent lead to the phenomenon that what is real in the present market is only certificate but not talents. But what we ignore is that the real importance for learning English is not to show how knowledgeable we are but to make a better communication with people. And thus our purpose of learning English is not merely for that small piece of paper but to link up with the world and communicate with others more efficiently. Also the enterprises do not need that small paper but the knowledge in our mind to create achievement for them. So if students in English major want to find a decent job, they must be truly learned and genuinely talented.
Ⅲ solutions of the employment difficulty for graduates of Business English
1 Students should make their own effort and adjustment First of all, students should transform their idea of employment and establish the employment attitude for new period. Besides, students should also take their own practical situation into consideration and establish a more public employment attitude. Secondly, students should do their best to improve their own quality and thus take the initiative. With non-English major students’ English ability becoming stronger and stronger, if students from English major cannot do good enough, we will lost our advantage to them in the future job-hunting. In this society that is in badly need of inter-disciplinary talent, only mastering a foreign language is not an edge of competition any more. There is a large number of non-English major students who have a good command of English and can read , write and speak as good as if not better than we can. Thus in this situation, our English majors must either grasp the essence and reach up to a certain height and level in our study or consider about enlarge our scope of knowledge. Besides, we must be good at communicating with others and improve our ability of both English and business social intercourse. Only in this way can we achieve our final goal and get a satisfying job. Thirdly, we can become self-employed and solve the problem of employment difficulty. As of student in Business English major, we should spread our wings in our professional skill and develop our own way of innovation. 2 reforms of colleges Firstly, colleges should reasonably regulate course structure and course design according to the needs of English market and run the school towards the society and market. Also they should combine the enrollment of English major freshmen and the trend of employment of English major graduates and thus give the English majors a larger chance to get a job.
Secondly, colleges should strengthen the guidance for students of Business English and give them guidance in their whole college life not just for graduates. Thirdly, colleges should build a high-quality and professional guidance team, whose quality directly determines the quality of the graduates. Thus they should be required to improve their own quality and levels. 3 government’s function on Business English graduates’ employment Firstly, the governments should make laws and regulations and establish a complete market system and make the employment of students in Business English more legalized and normalized. Secondly, government should strengthen macro regulation and control and promote the rational flow of trained personnel. Also students should be encouraged to assist to improve schooling in backward areas and help to improve the rural students’ ability of both English and communication with others. Devotion oneself into the western development should be strongly encouraged. Thirdly, government should give college graduates unemployment security and training mechanism. To sum up the above arguments, we can see that as students of Business English major, in order not to be eliminated by the nowadays society we should master the professional knowledge effectively. And only with continuous recognition and development of ourselves can we establish a higher social position in English area and thus to realize our value of life in this area.
