Q: Face jobs, do you do them?

Just finished watch Vice S3E8 (interesting watch). They talk about being white in China and face jobs  doing things like posing as doctors or business people to being butlers. WOW

Going back to the LBH thread, if you country idolizes not being whatever your race/ nationality then you as a country are LOseRS.

In a way, I'm sort of proud of out where I live here. On the (one) road into this section on the outskirts of town (but still technically in the BEST district in the province!), they have ads up for a hospital. They have a black doctor as their only person in the photo, and he's extremely prominent - like your avatars. So, black doctors are better than Chinese ones as well!!!

Face jobs and bukkake have a lot in common, so, no. I'm into self depreciation not self degradation.

I think it would depend on how much they were paying me, but I've never been asked to that.

 

Actually, I've found it odd that I've never been asked to be an actor, model, interviewed or any of these other "only because your white" jobs that are so frequently spoken about. In a way, it's even a little disappointing.

 

Maybe it needs to be a new question, but I would be interested to found out how many foreigners are actually being approached to do this kind of work. This doesn't mean they looked for this work themselves, but that they were pursued.

haha,,, when I first arrived in SZ many years ago I got to model Leather Motorcycle Jackets...  ended up published on their website too!  it was fun!  yep,  I got pursued to do it and it was because I look/looked like some sort of 1970's American Brady Bunch character.   (which I basically am)

A: They're saying you should be in China already because entering China i
A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
