Sorry Maru, if you're outside of China and trying to get a job in the country it's not going to happen anytime soon, the borders are closed to pretty much everyone.

 

I'm starting to really wonder if there will even be much of an ESL industry left soon, anywhere. I read a comment somewhere which was food for thought, not sure if I agree or not yet but the gist of it was that...

 

- International travel is effectively finished for who knows how long so forget about either recruiting teachers or accepting a job somewhere.

 

- A lot of the kids studying English are intending going to university in either the US or UK (other places too but not in the same numbers). If those places aren't seen as being safe destinations anymore - unless a vaccine becomes available I can't see Covid going away anytime soon -would that affect the ESL industry?

 

- Possible / probable financial tsunami coming.. there could be a lot less disposable income out there so there go the kid's English classes, schools close as a result.

 

- Not sure I agree with this point but ... if western (English speaking) economies take a big hit and lose global influence would the perception of English being as necessary a part of kid's education still be true?

 

At this point, and for probably at least another year travel bubbles opening up as different areas get on top of the virus are probably the only real hope for the ESL and tourism industries and that's assuming things don't go even more pear shaped than they are now.

Chinese employers never reply to individual CVs with 'We received your CV ... Thank you!'.

 

If for some reason don't like your CV, they move onto the next one.

 

1. Send CV to every offer posted!

 

2. Never stop sending CVs until you get an invitation for an interview. Never stop ...!

 

3. Don't count the CVs sent already, but just keep sending ...

 

I landed job from this website several times. I also used several good Chinese placement agents ... 

 

Non-native English teacher's advice with 8-years of working in China.

 

Good luck!

No one here has a job. We all live off government handout, pull down random statues and yell at the people who pay for all the stuff we destroy.

I agree with Stiggs. Unless you are already in China, you will find it very difficult to get in. The economy has influenced some of middle class here, preventing some from continuing their English education plans. Our high school seniors will conduct classes here in China via Google classroom, where they would normally have been in the USA. Our university students are having to conduct classes, primarily through internet classes. I think most countries are waiting until after the USA elections and for the winter terms. We have a teacher that has been trapped in another country since this thing occurred. He is fortunate that our school is working with him and allowing him to teach from outside the country. Our school has been very supportive of the foreign teachers throughout this process.

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
