BEIJING, May 13, 2017 (Beijing 2022) – The Beijing 2022 Organising Committee on Saturday finished its first worldwide recruitment for talents after a total of 119 shortlisted examinees were interviewed face-to-face.
The interviews were conducted at the organising committee’s office building on the west outskirts of Beijing, according to the Human Resources Department.
The examinees, on an average age of 33.2 years, passed a written test conducted on April 15, and were shortlisted for a 25-minute interview each to test their comprehensive competencies, the department said.
Ninety-two possess a master’s degree or above, accounting for nearly 80 percent of the shortlists, it said.
The organising committee will announce the final results in a week, it added.
“It’s my dream to work for the 2022 winter Olympics. I hope I’ll be employed. I want to do something for Beijing,” said Heloise Allemand, a French lady.
“I have a good job. I once worked for Beijing 2008. It was an amazing experience. I couldn’t resist the call from the 2022 Olympic Winter Games. It would be an eternal memory if I could serve both summer and winter Olympics,” said a Chinese interviewee who declined to be named.
In March this year, Beijing 2022, for the first time since its inauguration, offered 21 jobs covering areas like general planning, venue planning, construction and management, marketing, media and finance.
