Q: What happened to all of the web designers?

Currently live in Beijing, tried advertising on numerous sites for a professional web designer and find everything but that.

 

I'm approaching it from the point of view of a layman who knows very little regarding web design, but these so called "web designers" continuously ask me for more information and supposed templates. I don't know how it works but part of me keeps on thinking "is this not your job?"

 

Any pointers on how to best approach this issue would be greatly appreciated.

they say that once you post a cv it is theirs and you can not delete it . you can supposedly hide it but the only thing you can do is make it so unreadable or offensive it is no good to them. by the way this answer was deleted but i re posted it . Bet it is gone again soon..I think someone is worried about their employment

Thank you for your response philbravery, but I think you may have been misinformed.  We do allow users to delete resumes and have never said that once you post your resume it becomes our property, nor is it true that users cannot request removal of a resume.

 

Users can ALWAYS send a removal request to cs@echinacities.com as long as you provide your user name so that the customer service representative can find the resume. Since seeing philbravery's comment we have reassured this policy (which has always been the policy here) by informing our customer service representive about the concerns raised by the post. 

 

If you don't want to delete your resume and think you may use it later, simply make it invisible with the on-site features.

 

Happy job hunting!

@Admin, actually you are incorrect, as you are just one in a long line of 'Admins' who seem to be replaced every few months.

 

according to friends who know this site better than I, posters like Phil have been unable to remove their CV's, despite asking for their removal, so have had to resort to tactics such as Phil described.

 

Too often on this site, the various Admins have ignored posters and refused to engage with posters other than passive/aggressive responses such as censoring and banning.

I suggest you look at the questions previous Admins have posted and the responses received.

 

I was banned for no reason not too long ago.

 

Long term posters here are more familiar with the changing tone of this website than I, but i have been here long enough to see how debate and 'unharmonius' comments and posters are dealt with.

I haven't deleted any pms, it could be an issue with the system. I'll have someone look into it and try to get it solved.

I can assure you this isn't the case. We have reinformed those working in the customer service department that deletion of resumes is both acceptable and allowed and that any such requests should be complied with.

A:Weird jobs you say? China has plenty. The guys who work in bath houses and whose job it is to scrub guys down... that's got to suck.I've seen it. There will be a (usually fat) naked dude lying on a table, and the scrubber who is also near naked goes over him top to bottom with what looks like a scouring glove. They get right in there..lift the nuts, spread the cheeks and everything. God knows why anyone would pay for that but it seems they do. Then there are the eunuchs who became high-ranking public servants back in the day.Nowadays I don't think it's very common for them to be high-ranking, I think most just became wumaos - but a lot of them self castrated themselves to get the job.It must have been a hell of a decision to make...if you decide you'd prefer to be a plumber or rickshaw driver after a couple of years on the job there's no reversing the surgery. The people who stand in front of a shoe or clothing store and clap to attract customers- sometimes they will chant in unison - that's another job I always thought was bizarre. The supermarket staff whose job seems to be to stand in groups of three gossiping and blocking the aisles so you can't go down them, you have to turn around and go down the next aisle that probably has a sale on shampoo or expired tofu that day. The 'English Teachers' who can't communicate with the foreign teachers, or even their students in English but will tell anyone who listens how the foreign speaker is 'wrong'.Their jobs seem to be to unteach whatever English the kids are able to pick up.It's strange, but they do exist. If you're really looking for a great career though I suggest being the worthless lazy offspring of someone with good connections. Being stupid will help your prospects a lot.You'll be given a job with a decent salary, pension etc and all you need to do is play with your phone all day and be you. You'll never be asked to do anything or probably even show up at the office. In fact they'd probably prefer it if you just kept out of the way.      -- Stiggs
