As clients’ digital transformation partner, transcosmos China places emphasis on talent cultivation, and has been offering services in partnership with schools in order to address spikes in customer contact volumes during large-scale campaigns including Double 11, the biggest shopping festival in China. Based on such experiences, transcosmos China has decided to build a center by utilizing a facility on the Hunan College of Foreign Studies campus.

The Changsha Campus Center, which has opened in the Science and Technology Incubation Building of Hunan College of Foreign Studies, is equipped with various facilities including a contact center with over 400 workstations, 2 training rooms, a meeting room, and an employee cafeteria. To ensure information security, the center has 24/7 security monitoring systems, highly secure networks, and network behavior management systems.

With its “full-time employees + students working part-time” operating model, the Changsha Campus Center will provide diverse customer services such as inbound calls, outbound calls, and online chat for clients in IT, e-commerce and 3C (Computer, Communications, and Consumer Electronics) industries. Most students working part-time major in e-commerce, computer science and cross-border e-commerce, and are allowed to work up to 40 hours per week. Along with paid internships, transcosmos China also offers a career path for students to become a transcosmos China employee after graduation.

Founded in 1993, Hunan College of Foreign Studies is an independent college specializing in foreign languages with 10 faculties and 32 majors. The college built the Science and Technology Incubation Building specifically for industry-academia collaboration with businesses.
