Internships are a con. If you can teach, apply for teaching jobs.

If you can do anything, apply for any job.

Why people scramble over unpaid jobs is beyond me.

If you are really really really want an internship.... you need pay for it. Loads of people happy to take money from you for that honour.

Chinese won't send reply, if they're not happy with your CV, or if they can't accommodate you. Never mind! Keep applying.

 

Good luck!

By knowing French or English you can work for everything?  I highly doubt it.  I'm also looking, but keep in mind it is very difficult here.  Websites like this are a good start but when you consider the number of people applying for the few good spots...  You might be better off making friends with more people in your own city, wherever you are.

As Scots said....an "internship job" isn't a job. Jobs pay salaries, internships claim to give you training and experience but are just a way for companies to get some free labour to do their donkey work for them. Biggest scams going in my view.

The same way everyone else does... look at job offers or talk to people in your social group.

 

However... internships in China are horrible...

 

I wouldn't do it.

Internships are designed by the elite rich parents to block smart poor kids out of the career ladder. The rich parents know their mediocre offspring can't compete against others in a real market, so they buy into it.

 

They buy their kids a job. Meanwhile, the smart poor kids are flipping burgers to pay the rent and put food on the table.

 

An internship is a silver plated axe hacking away at social mobility.

 

If you are a conservative, don't forget..... this is what you and your parents voted for.

Wasn't there a big thing in the news a few years ago about university students on 'internships' in China essentially being free labor for manufacturing companies?

 

Unpaid internships are scams.  Don't be a sucker, if you NEED an internship, find a paid one.

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
