Technology talent plays an increasingly critical role in the economy. According to an IMF report, there may be a global shortage of 85 million tech workers by 2030, with a deficit of 12 million alone from China. As technology begins to underpin competitiveness across more sectors, the future of technology talent becomes even more important to foster. In the realm of artificial intelligence, China has seen its AI talent grow by ten-fold in the last decade given the Chinese government's goal to become a world leader in artificial intelligence innovation by 2030. Already, half of the global top ten universities for training machine learning talent are in China fuelling the drive for home-grown technology talent.

Against this backdrop, how is China transforming its talent pool to achieve greater acceleration in this critical area? What are the underlying trends for tech talent among China's enterprise hiring and talent development practices? What are the qualifications being sought in tech hiring and how are these shifting?

Come hear from Eugene Sun, '04 Head of Strategy and Corporate Development at Zhaopin and Richard Lin, Asia Technology Practice Lead at Egon Zehnder to unpack the latest changing winds in China's tech talent landscape today.
