Q: How you think about the jobs in Shanghai?Is single a big problem for getting the job?

1,Recently I applied many jobs,well,many of them want to hire me and the salary is not that bad for me.But the problem is they  require overtime working.I find most good paid jobs here are like that.

How is yours?

I don't want to put too much time on jobs.8 hours is enough.

2,Many companies ask me why I left the previously jobs,I have to lie to them cause my boyfriend is in Shanghai.The day the European manager asked me when will you get married.I said I don't kown,then he said he will let me kown latter,I think refused me.The main reason is I havn't got married.

As I know, most jobs in Shanghai don't offer housing.

You must ask for all perks from the Contract, when talking about new job.

 

I have never seen a Contract, which would require overtime work. Mostly, Contracts state pay rate for overtime work. But, if I am busy studying Chinese  or doing anything else, I would just say I don't  have time for overtime work.

 

 Most important thing in Shanghai's Contracts is housing, by my opinion. For overtime work, you can always say: 'I am too busy!'

You can easily make above avg local wages..3500k If you speak decent English.  I have some friends that have a Chinese tutor. I have one friend that pays his  tutor like 250 for 3 hours and another friend that pays only 70/hr. Even if you find 3hrs of work for 6 days a week that is 18 x 70 = over 5k per month. And this would be part time.

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
