Try Dave's Esl Cafe for esl jobs, this site is ok too but be wary of recruiters taking a chunk of your income. For professional jobs you'll have to be a good networker or get a western company to transfer you to China. If you're a white native speaker with a BA it should be easy to find an esl job.

esl jobs? you should be getting replies. post your cv on this site. should be getting a job easily. look at other teaching sites. if you are a native english speaker and dont mind working in a smaller city, pm me as i have a friend looking for a teacher.

 

non teaching jobs a different story. its difficult to get a response as the number of applicants are far higher for every job. you got skills in writing/jounalism, trade, other european languages, engineering, construction or finance you ll have a chance at getting a non teaching job if you keep plugging away. also look at the job boards i your own country and look up jobs in china

Chinese schools (employers in other fields also) don't respond, if they aren't interested in your CV.

Remodel your CV (make it shorter), include your photo (I know....!), and everything else adverts require.

Never mind, if no replies. Don't stop sending your CV, till you don't land a job.

 

I'm working with few 'no BS' Chinese placement agents, whom I trust. Contact them, and ask them for the job openings:

 

Skype handles:

 

'Allen Jia' - enkebeijing@hotmail.com

'Belita Qi' - belitaqi@outlook.com

'Linda' - teachinglanguage2009@gmail.com

 

You can tell them you got their contacts from me (if they'll ask!). Good luck!

If you are an ESL teacher with all the proper credentials from one of the five approved western speaking countries, I can put you in contact with the company I work for. We do not have schools in the big cities. Primarily thrid tiered cities. But, they pay on time, they take care fo their FT, and are not out to scam us.

Other than that, ESL jobs should be easy to get. Have someone look over your CV who works here in China to see if there is anything wrong or missing from it. It sounds like you are missing something that they require you to get a visa. Jobs are relatively easy for teachers to get in China. Without more information as to what you are supplying to them and the kind of job you are looking for, it is hard for any of us to assist you.

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
