Moreover, executives and senior HR managers from notable Italian companies, such as Bracco, Pirelli, Gi Group and Calzedonia, were also present to share job-seeking experience and interviewing skills with the university's graduates.

In addition, coming back to the campus after two years, the Sino-Italian Campus Carnival on the same day captivated both domestic and overseas students on campus.
