Q: Should i use a recruiter or should I simply send my resume directly to the school?

So far I have used recruiters and the jobs have been nightmares. Recruiters pressure me to sign contracts and when I actually get to the school they either change the contract terms when i get there or they violate the contract in some other way. I am curious if it would be better if i simply choose a Chinese city such as Urumqi, Hotan, Hohhot ot Kashgar and send resumes to any school that peaks my interest. I figure if they are able to hire me through a recruiter they could hire me directly.

You have to remember that the school needs permission to hire foreign workers .
China is a mine field of traps and frustration.
Maybe write a article about your experiences on the front page of this site as the audience is larger.
Good luck to you

There are no laowai-English-teaching job openings in Xinjiang since ... 2014 or so.

 

Currently, there is an Uyghur-Reeducation-program going on in Xinjiang, and I'd say, foreigners can't witness that.

 

However, Xinjiang was very nice province ... for few lucky foregners, he he

I have found my last three jobs going directly to schools (one university, two high schools) -- though the high school school I most wanted to work at (because of its proximity to my house) would only hire through a recruiter.

Try to contact schools directly, you lose nothing.

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
