I have been in Shenzhen for 2 weeks, now approaching my third week, and can't get a job despite the fact that my native language is english. I applied to so many places it makes me dizzy. is it that hard to get a job in Shenzhen?

well the semester already started so you are a bit late.

And only being native speaker is not a guranteed joboffer

Do you have a degree and experience?

Whats your salary expectation?

You should apply at Training centers in person. I guess, you could apply at Public Schools too, despite semester has already started.

 

You should have your BA and TEFL/CELTA certificate ready for Z visa/ Residence permit.

Open 'Jobs' page at Echinacities (top R side of the screen), change 'city' to Shenzhen, and start sending your CV daily to every job offer in Shenzhen.

Today's job advert of Primary School in Shenzhen:

'Top Urgent!!!!! Public School Teach English position in Shenzhen city'

Don't expect reply from every job, you'll send your CV. If School in China is not interested in your CV, they won't reply. Never mind! Keep sending your CV.

It is not a good idea to already be in China and looking for a legal job. You leave yourself open to the very probable chance of being employed illegally by an unscrupulous employer - and there are many of them around.

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
