* A Bachelors Degree or more which is verified by the Chinese Embassy or Consulate.

 

" If you do not have the above certification or degree, then two-year working experience related to Teaching English in China is required. The two-year working experience will also be verified.

I'm too lazy to go through the links there but is that from a recent source? I thought the degree was a firm requirement now.

Yes and no. There are plenty of people who get teaching jobs in China with no degree. However they're probably not legally allowed to be teaching. Supply and demand.  Schools who are hard up for a teacher will hire whomever they can get their hands on. Schools get busted regularly for hiring unqualified teachers. Years ago I met a guy in his  fifties who bragged to me how he got a job teaching at a university and had no degrees at all. He said he just had someone photoshop a degree for him. So it happens and people who are from non native english speaking countries get jobs all the time. But these people are going to generally make less money than native speakers or live in fear of getting reported and deported when someone figures out their work history or degree is bogus. So if you don't have a degree or work history this probably isn't an ideal way to make money.

It's a wrong place for posting your CV.

Nobody will hire you at the 'Answers' part of this website.

 

See 'Find Jobs' tag, on the top of the screen, L side, find suitable job, city and apply/send your CV.

Chinese job advertisers and recruiters don't reply, if for some reason cannot employ you, i.e. cannot secure Z (Working) visa.

Never mind! Keep sending your CV until you land an invitation for an interview and contract offer.

Good luck!

 

P. S.

Non-native English passport holders cannot get legal employment in China. Only citizens of UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and S. Africa, i.e. native English speakers can be legally employed in China.

A: You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yours
A:You can work only if you hold a work permit and residence permit yourself. The same conditions for all foreigners apply. You have a job and the company can legally employ foreigners. Work permit is tied to that company and location that you are actually working and the position matches. You can't just work in China if you hold a dependence visa or residence permit.  -- jmintzis
