How to obtain employment for this part of labor force has become an urgent social problem. The interest of the Internet has created many jobs and provided many employment opportunities. Therefore, whether the Internet will have a positive impact on the non-agricultural employment of rural labor force in China, or what factors will have an associated effect with the Internet to promote the employment of rural labor force?
