These are all good answers and good places to look for a job in China. Problem is, not all the schools in China are good places to work and it can be really hard to tell the good ones from the bad ones. Many are not even licensed to legally employ foreigners.

I suggest using a placement company that has researched the schools and can help you find a teaching jobs that suits your desires. The agency is responsible to both the school and the teacher, so finding a good fit is important them.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
