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: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 somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
