Apply online for every School's advert at echinacities. EVERY! There are more than 300 job adverts daily.
It doesn't matter, what School is asking for, just send your CV.

 

You must be aware, when School is asking for your photo, they probably have problem with 'skin color', and they want white teacher. Chinese are racists, I would say probably 'unknowingly', in their defense!

 

It is not custom in China, that School would say to job candidate: 'Thank you! We are not interested in your work or appearance.'

They will just skip you, and forget you.  

You won't get reply on most of your sent CVs. Never mind! Just keep applying for job offers.

You should keep sending replies to new job offers even when you're already secured job. 

That's online work!

 

If you are in China already, visit ALL Public Schools, Language Schools and Training Centers in the city with your CV and credentials.

 

I consider applying for new position in China as my part-time job. I am applying for new positions constantly.

Non - native, white teacher's advice!

Definitely yes, I know Nigerians teaching in China. Some schools actually care more about your qualifications than your skin color. Anyway you don't want to work for people who care about your appearence more than your skills.

Just send another picture, once you're there, you're there! Your job is to make them like you!

I did that when i was pregnant 'coz no one wanted to hire me for "security reasons"

Good luck!

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
