In China’s fast-growing tech industry, it’s easy to focus on exciting new products and businesses while overlooking one of the most important elements of any company: the talent.

In this episode, we look at how the recruiting process at Chinese tech firms does — and doesn’t — differ from that of multinational firms, and how China’s new wave of tech professionals view their career options.

We examine

  • Incentives/disincentives for working at multinational firms vs. Chinese internet companies

  • The importance of 996 or working overtime

  • Probation and the concept of “hire fast, fire fast”

  • Unstructured vs. standardized hiring practices

  • China’s gender discrimination problem

Guests

  • Vincent Wang, a senior associate at executive recruiting firm Atkins & Associates

  • Ben Jiang, who runs the India bureau of Krasia, an Asia-focused tech media platform

  • A Zhen, a product manager and team leader for front-end development at a Shanghai-based internet company
