Q: Nobody is answering my questions in the chat

I have reached out after I have made an application and sent a message in the chat. It says 'unread' . I have not received an single hit on a job application. I know that I meet 100% of the criteria the employers are asking for. I need to know what is the problem?

Welcome to China
You won't get any response unless they want you.

This is normal.
You should just get used to it if you want to work in China.

Chinese borders remained closed ... it might be one of the reasons.

 

Many Training mills in China got closed/prohibited a month ago ... could be another one.

 

Chinese employers don't reply with "Thank you for your application, but ..." as the Western employers do.

If Chinese employer cannot place you to the advertised job for this or that reason, they will just move on to the another applicant.

 

As I was working in China, I would advise:

"Never mind for no replies to your application. Don't stop sending your CV until you receive one or two invitations for an interview ... " with 'Good luck' wishes in the end.

 

I'd say, that still applies at looking for the job position in China, so keep sending your CV ...

 

Good luck!

Also review your CV and Letter of motivation, aside from all my previous echinacities fellows replied to your question. It may help you. Try a cross refferencing to Letter of Motication and CV fro the specialists and see what it may entice the employer to reply to you. My 2 cents, only. All the best, in your pursuit.

It may also depend on what job you are looking for. If it is highly specialized, you may have to wait longer. If you are a teacher, i am surprised you do not have recruiters contacting you. Have you made your CV visiable on echinacities, or is it hidden? 

 

There are various economic factors at play too, beyond the governmental policies of tihtening against foreigners. If you are outside of China currently, you may have to wait until the 2022 Beijing Olympics when they will open their borders again. 

 

Again, it would really help if you told us what job field you are applying to. You say that you meet all of the visa requirements set forth by the government, so that should not be a problem.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
