Q: What can a none-native english speaking european person do in shanghai?

i wonder if there's any job that having a white face is more important than English accent or grammar accuracy here in shanghai? long-term role preferred.

Depends on their background & experience. You're question seems to assume most foreigners speak English. If they've got no experience or qualifications then they'll struggle to get any legal work. Whereas if they've got lots of experience in finance, trading, engineering, chef/cooking, wTcg then they've got more chance to find a job.

The new rules for English teachers that came out last year rule out teaching. What are you qualified to do? You said that you know a lot about handjobs but I'm sure that kind of work would be under the table - no pun intended.

I know a South American guy with his heavy accent teaching English in Shanghai. I don't think he's qualified but he's white.

And many pretty European are modeling in Shanghai. They earn a lot.

For the rest of the jobs I assume your friend will need some skills.

Personally I think getting skills is more important to build a future unless your friend just wants some quick cash and temporary fun here or just want to settle in China for the rest of his life.

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
