Recently, Guangzhou Daily published a story about a Chinese overseas returnee who finds it hard to land a well-paid job at home after eight years' study in the US. He wonders when can he earn back the 4 million yuan he spent on his overseas study. This report comes amid increasing stories about the "devaluation" of overseas returnees and their struggle to find satisfying jobs. Do you think overseas study is still desirable?
Cost of education doesn't comply with the expectations. Studying abroad or within the country makes no sense . It depends on the individuals, wether you are smart or explore your potential. There are also many excellent returnees.
First, please disclose the source for good reading and understanding.
What programme or course did the student studied in US? Which institute of higher learning did the student attended?
Having spent eight years in US is quite a length of time. With four million yuan invested over eight years, it worked out to be about half a million a year. Seems that the student must be attending some very specialized course. Please share the details.
