Shanghai's labor authority will increase training subsidies this year, mainly for new jobs such as e-business professionals, computer numeric controlled  (CNC) machine operators and cable TV technicians, as revealed in the latest job subsidy catalog published yesterday by the Shanghai Labor and Social Security Bureau.
Middle and senior professions account for 84 percent of the jobs included in the aid catalog, while senior positions reach 76 percent, an indication that Shanghai will encourage the training of more senior professionals.
Most of the junior professions to benefit from the subsidies fall in the category of newly created jobs such as beauticians, nail stylists and fire fighting specialists.
Junior positions like computer operators and computer designers are excluded this year.
