Q: Any way round the related work experience?

So, I got a job offer while I was in Shanghai, China just a few weeks ago. I live in the UK and i'm currently back in the UK, so I have to apply for the employment license. When I accepted the job, they told me I need atleast 2 years work experience and I told them I have 2 years work experience but it isn't related to the job. They then told me “previous work experience doesn’t have to be related to the new job. It would be preferable, of course, but almost impossible for most candidates.”

When I gave the documents needed to the person in charge of my employment license application, he told me I MUST have related work experience otherwise I wont be able to apply for the employment license.

I also should have mentioned, the job is a IT related job and I do have a IT related degree.

 

so I'm wondering if there is any way around not having related work experience to the job to get an employment license?

Thank you

if your employer wants you bad enough, he will enhance your resume with eloquent exaggerations, but i dont recommend the employee do this to save your from your own conscious. i know training schools that have fake degrees for teachers, had one rapper wanna be piece of excrement showed a fake yale degree and still works in china. karma did get him, so all is well.

A: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 mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha). -- Quinn68
