April is coming, and the temperature in Beijing has already begun to soar before I can feel the fragrance of birds and flowers. It is said that there is no spring in Beijing. Is the spring of the 19th graduates still there?
Perhaps for the graduating class of 19, the real winter has just begun.
cold spring internet
Since the end of last year, in the winter when ofo queued up to refund the deposit and sent an apology letter to the whole network, major public accounts have been flooded with remarks about the cold winter of the Internet, and the layoff information of major companies has also been circulated on major social networking sites. .
In fact, because of the disappearance of dividends, this year's large-scale layoffs by major companies is also a major reshuffle, washing away the internal bloated problems left by the low barriers to entry and aggressive recruitment of people in the early years. It is even more difficult for the remaining enterprises to keep warm for the winter.
At the beginning of 2019, when everyone Latest Mailing Database was waiting to welcome the New Year of the Pig, the hammer mobile phone was struggling, ofo could not make ends meet, Tuniu laid off more than 400 people, and Zhihu was reported to have laid off 20% of the staff, involving more than 300 people. I thought that these companies represented nothing. After all, a group of Internet companies collapsed every year, which has long been commonplace. Who knows that after the year has passed, all kinds of news about layoffs have come one after another.
First, companies such as Lagou, Meitu, and Qudian, and then Internet companies such as Zhihu, Mobike, ofo, Hammer, and Meituan were successively reported layoffs. Even Tencent and Alibaba have reported the news of shrinking social recruitment, not to mention the bankruptcy of various small and medium-sized companies, etc., they are all over the winter!
On February 15, Didi made preparations for the winter at the monthly all-staff meeting, laying off 15% of the overall workforce, involving more than 2,000 people;
On February 17, JD.com announced at the annual meeting that it will eliminate 10% or more of executives with vice presidents at the end of 2019;
On February 18, Renrenche was violently laid off, and all the managers below were dismissed;
On March 8, Panda Live shut down the server.
Ali, Baidu, Huawei, Sina and other giant companies have also heard rumors that they have stopped recruiting. Didi, Meituan, NetEase, and JD.com all have HR and fresh graduates reporting that there are behaviors of destroying offers. In recent months, students who have been submitting resumes looking for opportunities should find that the number of positions released by major recruitment platforms has been greatly reduced. Everything It all shows that the Internet winter is really coming.
Competitively motivated school recruitment
Students who have just experienced the autumn recruitment can clearly feel that this year is not only in the Internet industry, but also in the employment pressure of all walks of life.
According to official statistics, there are 8.6 million new students this year, the most in history, but companies have scaled back their recruitment. Because of the decline in securities, the financial industry has reduced recruitment, and brokerages have not recruited people this year. With the disappearance of the demographic dividend, the Internet has shrunk on a large scale. Fast shrinking recruitment, the real estate industry is even more severe this year, Vanke New Power only recruited 88 people in the whole country, and only 10 people in the whole of Beijing. The national entrance exam enrolled 14,500 people, a decrease of nearly half from last year. So don't gamble all your chances on the spring recruits. There are very few opportunities for the spring recruits this year. Most of the "pits" for the autumn recruits are already full, and there is still an army of failed tests and failed exams.
