    I have once been asked, on the former chats, back in the 2000 "are you male or female?"

    I have answered: "I'm not male nor female, I am an e-mail"

    As humans gain knowledge and money, they realize the long term cost and sacrifice involved to raise children. The poor and uninformed just do it because they don't know any better. The higher the income per capita, the lower the birth rate. This wont change any time soon. The price of progress and enlightenment.

    Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results.

    Yeah, you might try your luck with Chinese Foreign Expert Bureau or even try to change the last novelty of Chinese Labour law implemented in 2017 ... I don't have a weblink, but recognised native English countries in China are:

    "UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand."

    I ain't sure, if South Africa is included in that list, but most likely it is.


    That means...

    One reason for not getting replies out of Chinese employers is Chinese don't reply with polite note "Thank you for your application! Position has been filled already." same as western employers usually do.


    Once Chinese employer see they are unable to place you at the advertised position for this or that reason, they just move onto next one.

    If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.

    Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed...

    Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait.


    @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about...

    That old Chinese lady is a legend, some cowardly little piece of shite sucker punched her and probably another old man earlier, so she wrecked him, put him in hospital. Good for her but she should never have been put in that situation.


    The fact that this is a thing now, attacking elderly people (or anyone for that matter) , often from behind and probably calling themselves...

    Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure.


    I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours.

    Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding.


    Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is...
