The purpose of this thesis is to provide insight into the recruitment and selection processes of high-tech companies in China and to advice returning Chinese overseas students on these recruitment and selection processes. We collected empirical data from respondents by using semi-structured interviews for the following qualitative analysis. Interview guide, selection of respondents, conduction of interviews will be presented to show how we organized these eight interviews. In addition, we chose some parts of our interview questions depending on a SWOT analysis. Our theoretical framework is constructed by three main theories, which include culture, recruitent and selection process and job fit theory. They are the basis for carrying on all of the analysis with empirical data in the analysis part. Our data is based on an overview of companies and /on/ eight interviews. Then, depending on our findings, we carried out an analysis from overseas education, “Guanxi” in Chinese national culture, the recruitment and selection process. We conclude the statuses of four processes of recruitment and selection are complicated. We also gave our final suggestions for all of the returning Chinese overseas students, such as keeping close track with major internet recruitment agencies; adapting to traditional Chinese standards of value in corporate cultures; exploiting possible interpersonal contacts to smooth the job application process; paying attention to different emphases of different companies on the applicants’ university rankings and related work experience and putting the emphasis on their own separate qualities with regard to different kinds of employers.
