Q: Eastern European with US college degree working in China?

Hi, I am from Eastern Europe but have gotten a University degree from a University in USA. I have a degree in Music, and (although I am from a non-english native country) my english is almost as good as the english speaking native. I would love to come to China and teach Music/English. How can I do that?

Here, we all stream upon improvin' pesters written English syntax. 

 

Most Chinese are unable to judge yer English. They just look at applicant's passport and if it was issued by the one of the 5 (or 6) native English countries, your English must be good, too.

 

Yes, by the current Labour law provision, you qualify for an English teaching job in China despite you hold a non-native English passport.

However, most recruiters and language schools aren't aware of that, so you most likely won't get too many replies at your job applications, but ...

 

Never mind! Don't stop sending your CV until you land the invitation for an interview.

 

You might want to stick the sentence about your eligibility for a legal English teaching job in China into the Intro letter or anywhere in your CV.

As soon as you'll land an invitation for the interview, make sure you'll mention that provision to the interviewer, first!

 

Good luck!

A:Well, doing a medical exam ahead of time wasn't actually necessary. I signed a promissary note stating that I was in good health and would do the result once I arrived in China. This was enough. -- norninman
