Chinese employers usually don't reply, if they aren't interested in your CV, so redo your resume, and include everything they demand on job advert.

 

Don't count, how many CVs you sent, but never stop sending it till you don't sign a Contract. You must look at posted adverts daily, and forward your CV.

 

I believe, some teaching job adverts are just an adverts. They aren't really looking to fill the positions.

I'm not sure what's the purpose to post an advert, if you don't have an opening, but sometimes I have that feeling.

 

What kind of the job are you looking for?

I wouldn't reply if you made your application in capitals as it comes across as slightly deranged!

Perhaps get a native speaker to clean up your CV and fix the language.

 

That one-page Chinese style that doesn't really say much other than your name, wechat ID and ethnicity (which is always Han), doesn't impress employers used to seeing a comprehensive one.

To shery6:

After you have implemented the above suggestions, go to another website. Your better than this website. You have proven to be an above average learner (with an Aeronautical Engineering degree).

Also, you may have to accept a lesser Junior Engineering position, but that's ok. Just get in with a good company with good future projects and get recognized for your abilities. 

Always keep your CV updated with all the latest keywords that HR departments look for in a candidate.

If you are a Graduate aeronautical engineer your best bet would be websites of aircraft manufacturers. Airbus for example. Or Comac. If you are Chinese it might be difficult to get a job abroad in this trade because of security issues. If you are not Chinese I would say you have a very difficult struggle to be employed here unless you are already established with a foreign company.

Have a think about what other Engineering disciplines you can move to. I am an Engineer myself, and in today's job market you need to be flexible. Now you have graduated, it's up to you to train yourself. Apply for ME jobs, target specific companies. Do research on the web. Send HR a stunning email that gets them interested. You need to work hard at getting your foot on the first rung. And the first rung is at the bottom. Everyone needs to start there.

Good luck.

Government will not issue Z visa to many Arabic countries including Pakistan. That's your problem.

Lets be honest shery6. I took the time to give you a detailed answer, and you did not even go to the effort of sending me a pm about engineering jobs. Too late. I have a mate looking for an engineer... But if you cant join the dots....wow. Too late.

Last week I opened thread here about vacant teaching position at Shandong Uni with invitation to contact me over PM, and I will connect job seeker with Uni's representative. 

I received only one PM of the regular poster, who contacted me also last year, when I posted open Precalculus teaching position at the School I am working.

I act only as a middle man between School and job seeker. I won't see any of your personal details, CV, your pic or anything else.

I will give you School's representative contact details (phone no., email address, Skype handle), and then everything is between him/her and you.

Scots offered help in finding an engineering position in post above, but....

 

Now, there're plenty threads here how posters are unsuccessful to secure English teaching or other profession position at Schools and Co's in China for this or that reason.

 

At the moment, I know for two open positions in Kaifeng, Henan, one in Public school and another one in the Language center.

 

Reason of this reply is: I was asked by both Schools to find FT, who could replace me. 

 

Both Schools hold Foreigner hire Certificate, and are able to sponsor Z visa.

 

PM stands for 'private message'angel

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
