Firstly, I'd suggest that you brush up on your English if you want a part time teaching job then I would find somewhere to live with great security so that you can't be arrested in the wee hours for working illegally.

I hope this helps wink

I say learn skills. Take online classes on database software or excel.

 

So what you speak mandarin fluently?...unless they want to explicitly be "the foreigner guy" at a shitty little local company if you don't have real business skills no one is going to hire you regardless.

 

Learn skills, as in get better at them than you can find in the local job market, show a ton of initiative to get ahead and maybe there will be an opportunity here for you. Otherwise just get a job teaching english and make do with that.

 

I don't know what else to say...no one is going to trust an expat with any real responsibility unless they can do something special.

are you a foreign worker or student?

you say nothing about yourself or your background.

if you are a foreign (legal) worker, it is illegal to work a second job.

if you are an illegal foreign worker, don't come crying here: get yourself legally employed

if you are a student contact your university for the terms of your student visa and if you are allowed to work (i don't think you are)

if you are looking for legal work, you will have to leave the country to get the correct official documents to apply for a Z visa

if you are looking to work illegally, you are on your own

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
