Q: Anyone else go to the jobs fair?

I went to the Jobs Fair advertised on this website today in Shanghai and I have to say it was crap.   Nothing like what I expected.  First of all the majority of the positions were for companies or schools not in Shanghai which wasn't made clear, secondly most of the jobs (about 90%) were English teaching jobs.   Ok I know a lot of the foreigners here teach English but you can't tell me theres no other jobs available.   Waste of my day!!  And full of people selling crap.

 

Anyone go to the other fairs, or have any better luck?

My luck has not been better. Often times, they post the job fair just one day before the fair is to take place, so usually I miss them.

I went to a job fair with my previous school, we were looking for new teachers so I was with the employers. It was in the Nanning Convention / Exhibition centre (which is fairly huge), and there were literally tens of thousands of 'customers'. My role was to evaluate the English level of the 'candidates'.  Of the several hundred candidates who came forward that day, I rated three highly enough to recommend further interviews. The Director of Studies said no to all three "because they're not beautiful". They had degrees in English, IELTS level 8, and they knew how to teach the language and had a good grasp of idiomatic expressions, but they weren't even offered an interview because they weren't beautiful!

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
