Q: I am a teacher from the Philippines, how I can hire for a teaching job?

Hi! I've been here in Shanghai, for almost a month, I applied online job posting for 100 times and I invited for an interview for 20 times and still, both part time and full time teaching job but sad to know that I am still waiting for a job. I graduated as a Bachelor in Elementary Education and more than 5 years of teaching experienced.

Greetings Ermagino,

I think your nationality and perceived level of English are influencing your odds. I suggest listening to the advice of some of the other posts and looking to smaller cities. The employers in Shanghai probably have more expectations than they think you meet. Best of luck!

Unfortunately, the reality is....Pogger's right. You do seem to have problems with your written English which leads me to believe that your spoken word is on par with that. Have you tried Elementary schools as your education looks to be in line with teaching kids.

harbin is very cold and and hard to get teachers to stay there and some schools there hire filipinos for teaching english, also qingdao has an english school that only hires filipinos , it seems to be cheaper for koreans to come on a boat to qingdao for english lessons than take the classes in korea , so this school only teaches koreans , not chinese , so filipinos can get a work visa for the school. sorry i dont know the name of the school but can probably find on the internet.

Go to the countryside where they're too poor to hire Westerners. That's the only hope you have with grammar that bad.

I am Filipino, too. But I am sorry "kababayan" you must not work here as an English teacher without proper documents. It is illegal. You must go back to our country, find a school to sponsor you and apply for a Z visa, if you are qualified. There are thousands of Filipino teachers here in China teaching various subjects, subjects others can't teach, so don't worry finding one. They have invitations and permits granted by PRC and they enjoy the same benefits of the native English speakers.

"and they enjoy the same benefits of the native English speakers." except for the money, and often some level of respect...

The same benefit? Where did you get that from? Please don't dupe the poor guy with false expectations. He won't get neither respect nor the same salary as a native English teacher or as a non-native English teacher coming from Europe. Unfortunately  that's the cruel reality. The non-native English teachers coming from Europe they get a better salary but far less than a native English ones. And my Filipino English teacher colleagues are less than I am paid though they do such a great job.

Harryjohn, I believe you are over reacting. I am not sure I can follow you, but definitely you misunderstand me. No matter how my message may have triggered your bad feelings, please express your frustration in a better way. As you may see my message ends up with a genuine respect unto my Filipino co-worker teachers. Maybe in saying "don't dupe the poor guy ..." made you feel so angry that you send me a pm I should report it as abusive. Nonetheless, I apologize for my words. Here people are coming from different Countries and so we share our differences or common points. Do it with respect even if you dislike my words.  Yes, I do believe people should not be given false expectations where there are not. I myself know that Filipino people have a good deal of problems here when it comes to Visa, payment and conditions of work. In saying: "the same benefits of the native English speakers" that's a false hope. I remember to have tried to find for you a help through my agent to put you in contact with somebody in HK on a visa related issue. As you can see that's my attitude about anyone in need. If I can help i will help, If I cannot I try to avoid giving false expectations. This is not Philippines, a country I am very much attached to. This is China, and it's a hell of a jungle. Avoid to send me a 2nd offensive pm or I will publish it and report it as abusive. Respect my privacy as I respect yours.

harryjohn:

Well, you just admitted that you hit the wrong button. Did I not respect you by sending you a pm instead? And when I asked help from you before, it wasn't for me. I also help others to get some information, and did I really get any help from you? Guys, dont put a gun on my head when you cannot pull its trigger. Abuse? Really?
