i thought this title had " hand " in the title.  Think if you are not Chinese it would be difficult to get this job unless you knew someone who worked in a company.

If 'material handling' is a very specialised field which takes training and qualifications - yes.

 

If not, not a hope! There are 1.6BILLION people in China - many of them have their own problems getting a job, and so are forced to move cities (or provinces) to provide for their families back home.

 

For you to work in China, you need a sponsor, and you need to get a work visa... why would an employer bother with all that, when they can just get a local to do the job??? So much easier!

As others have said, without either highly specialized skills or awesome Chinese language skills, or both, getting a good job here is next to impossible.

it's very easy if you can communicate with Chinese colleagues.

If You are engineer (qualified, certified etc.) and real professional in mentioned "material handling" - find Your homeland factory that makes production in China, and ask them to hire You and send to China as QC and production manager.

Then You will work in China on business visa (because You will not work for Chinese company.

 

Otherwise - You have to have really special skills and good knowledge of Chinese language to find good job in China - for Chinese company.

 

There is also question of "what is "GOOD" job for You?
High salary? Questionable... Maybe for CEOs, high level management and rare specialists.

 

If You "material handling" skills are programming and operating CNC or something like this... sorry, but China have already enough own engineers.

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
