“Opinions on Strengthening and Improving Ideological and Political Work in Colleges and Universities under the New Situation” proposes that colleges and universities should insist on three-wide education, that is, education should be set for full members, designed in an all-round way and conducted throughout whole process. However, employment is a critical link in three-wide education. It is a severe challenge for college graduates to find jobs due to triple influences of prevention and control of COVID-19, downward pressure on economy and the national "double reduction policy". Normal college students face greater employment pressure because of limited employment channels, elaborate division of labor and specialization, and larger proportion of female students. Employment is the foundation of people's livelihood, and it is practically urgent to improve employability of contemporary college students. However, studies indicate that many college students are equipped with poorer employability that is reflected in defects of psychology, personality, attitude and other factors. It is an innovation to cultivate employability of normal college students by applying concepts and methods of positive psychology.
