Thank you for these delightful articles. From the outside, there are so many misconceptions about the semiconductor industry within China.

This generation is in double jeopardy: first not knowing what they want, and second, not getting any reliable guidance (advice of elders doesn't help anymore).

I had made a survey in my colleagues. I ask how they choose their major in college. There are a lot of different answers but there is no choice base on their interests. Some of them didn't know what they like, so they choose the hottest major they could; Some choose that major for fight against parents' arrangement; Of course some give up and follow the "suggestion" from their teacher, relative or friends... So I believe M's situation is typical in China. And I think the source of it is the education system in China. All education is for examination, College Entrance Examination is the most important testing in their life. Education recourse allocation injustice. Compare with the entered probability of Peking University between GuangDong and BeiJing, GuangDong students' probability is only 1% of BeiJing students'. Not to mention those more poor area. There are also a lot of children in China even can not finish their nine-year compulsory education.

But I think the issue to be considered now is there are no obvious money-making career choices as in parents' traditional thinking. This generation is the first to find out.

You may call it naive girly thought. But the basis of any reporting should come from meetings with actual people. It's easy to generalize; knowing individuals matters. At least, that's the first step to get to know another culture and another country.

naive girly thought, the world is not made to be easy, read Gen chap 3,4... I hate my job even when I am basically web surfing all day long, cause I hate to sit in a office. 'Choose whatever career you like.’” that sounds more like communism or utopia...
