Q: How can foreign students get a part-time job?

There have been some changes in Chinese legislation and it would now be possible for foreign students to work in China.

 

How will the system work? What kind of paperwork would be needed? 

 

My graduate studies start in September. I'll have a scholarship, but I also want to travel a bit and the scholarship allowance won't be enough to cover that.

 

I want to teach English and I'm willing to work on weekends.

Stop-by at Training Centers and Kindergartens in the city. They're all looking for part-time teachers.

 

You could also check Public Schools, however I think chances to get part-time job in Public Schools are smaller.

 

I am not sure about new regulations on students work.

Ask if theres any joint where u could meet freigners, talk to them and ask what they do. You wont admire all that they do but choose the ones who r teachers cuz u wanna teach, be friends and ask them if u can find a part time job. Friends help friends. Another option, visit schools and find it by urself or go online try to look for schls near u

Angelina, as you have described yourself, pictures would be required to help youlaugh. That being said, I would not let your school know you will be doing part time work, your tuition could skyrocket, just happened to a good Tunasian friend of mine, Kindergartens are by far the best money makers for part-time, my friend works from 10-12 Mon. thru Fri. and makes about 10K rmb monthly, if she was telling the truth, and works at the Hampson in our building on Sat. and Sun. 4 classes per day at a rate of 200 rmb per class; considering where she is from, she is making a good living; she must be on campus for her classes during other times. Remember the new laws though, nothing over 14 hours, or it becomes illegal, PM me your pictures

Doesn't your school have that student/work program where a student is given a job at the school for extra money? You have to find something related to your field and see if you can get the student/work opportunities. I don't think going out of that realm is a good idea. surprise

As far as I know (happened to my American friends) they were here on a one year student visa, which not allows them to work in China. They got a part time job and offered a work visa (3 month), they took it but what they didn't know was that the work visa canceled their student visa. They overstayed their visa by a month and got a huge fine.

 

I suggest you to get part time jobs where the owners doesn't care so much, if you get cough working anyway it's still cheaper and less problems then to get work visa. Usually private schools/training centres don't care about working visa

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
