Not possible, 'cause you can apply for Work visa (Z) only at Chinese Embassy abroad, HK the best or in your home country.

 

Your Q on through the web ... answer is 'no':

You can do it..sort of. Everything you need can be done through the mail. All the embassy stuff and police checks, all this can be done while you're in china though agents and things like that in your home country or your home embassy in china. Once you get your passport back in the mail in china with the z visa in it. Just take a quick run to Hk and come back in. Done. Mind you, this process of using an agent to do everything is quite pricy. All this I know my good friend here did it. One thing is you may not even have to leave the country once you have the z visa...he did but he said he was not even sure if he had to. He did because once you come back in it gets put in their system so it would not raise any red flags when he applied for his residency permit.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
