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.

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
