Q: Anyone in Shenzhen?

I need someone in shenzhen who speaks Madrine and English. Foreigners and Chinese are both fine.

Take my US client for checking production at my supplier's factory.

You'll get paid for 1000rmb for a day's work.

It is urgent, I need you to be able to schedule time during May 8-12. I only need you to be on this job for one day.

Pls let me know if any of u want this part time job.

$158? You’ve got to be kidding! Way too cheap! 

 

Its your client so you so you should come yourself. If you don’t then what’s to stop the factory stealing your customer?

I found a student with 1000rmb, she's still a student, her English is fluent but accent is not great.

She's inexperienced and I'm a bit of worried.

Is 1000rmb too much for the job to guide customer do product inspection? The customer might just come for few hours.

Are expenses additional? I would be happy to get a DD down from GZ, take your clients to a slap up western meal, maybe KTV, and a return taxi trip to a brothel in Dongguang. I know the area well enough to do that. You gotta speculate to accumulate and all that.

But I would want 10% commision on whatever they order. After all, it would be me doing the actual work.

Actually... I will offer to do it for free. No charge at all.

Email me the contacts of the customer and the factory, tell me about the product. I will arrange for translators, auditors, quality inspectors, supply chain experts, shippers, IP lawyers, tax experts...

And I will even find a printer to print some new business cards.... ScotsAlan exports ltd.

If you are lucky, I might give you 1% introduction commission.

But in reallity, give me the job. Pay me 1000 rmb, and I will introduce your customer to a real trader in Shenzhen who has all of the above export requirements in place. He is even licensed.

I wont sign a contract for the 1k. But me and my SZ trader mate will promise to upvote you 1000 times on ecc so you can get a nice gift.

You want my email address? Lets do business.

I only earn 5000rmb from this order,damn it. Now too much trouble. After spending on hiring the employee or I fly over or I take the client for meal or spent on renting temporary office in Shanghai for showing the client. I'll get nothing left and probally end up paying more than 5000rmb. I wonder it worth spending that much money on this client at all?

Not even big client, just a small order.

and I found the factory boss has some cooperation with my boss, I saw they sell some products from my boss's company and my boss sell some of the products they made. Not great to meet this supplier by myself while I'm still working for my boss

A: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. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
