Some job hunters who attended the first special job fair for Chinese overseas students in Beijing were disappointed to learn that salaries offered were much less than they had expected.

The Beijing Morning Post reported that most of the enterprises only offered about 3,000 Yuan, or about 400 US dollars a month, about the same as for domestic college graduates.

Some job hunters complained that the proposed salary is a bit too low considering the costs involved in studying abroad.

The recruiters, however, said that returned Chinese overseas students do not actually have many advantages, especially those who only studied one or two years overseas.

These students haven't learned much about the advanced skills in the world and some are even not good at the language.

Some recruiters say that they specifically refuse those students who studied overseas with the support of their parents and lived a extravagant life there. Instead, they prefer those who won scholarships or paid for their tuition by themselves.
