Description: Along with the bustling market economy, the higher education system in China has experienced remarkable expansion within the last decade. College enrollment significantly increased along with the selection of colleges. However, the student service system and the system for students to choose a college major have remained problematic and in need of systematic change. According to a 2003 survey at Xiamen University, only 31% of students were happy about their major, while 69% felt they could not enter their ideal careers. A national study indicated that 42% of undergraduates were not satisfied with their present college majors and 65% wanted to change their majors. The goal of this article is to analyze the transformation of the current college career choice system and discuss trends and future development of the career services needed to meet both social growth and student development needs.
