One reason for not getting replies out of Chinese employers is Chinese don't reply with polite note "Thank you for your application! Position has been filled already." same as western employers usually do.

 

Once Chinese employer see they are unable to place you at the advertised position for this or that reason, they just move onto next one.

 

Politeness is an English language treat ...

 

You should act the same, i.e. never stop sending your CV until you don't land an invitation for the interview ... and never mind, you applied at brazillion position.

 

Once, you'll sign the contract with the first employer, it's very easy to cancel or disregard all further coming ones.

 

Good luck!

no reason.

just wondering if you applied for English teaching positions.
If your answer to this is yes, you applied for English language teaching positions, your 'question' has given the answer already.

Perhaps you aren't as special as your mum said or your application was lower than their requirements or they expected problems with your visa. Who could possibly know why? You didn't get that one. Move on, try another.

This is quite normal. Chinese companies generally won't respond to an applicant if they don't intend to hire or interview you. I guess that's just western politeness.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
