Q: Where would be the best place to look for entry-level non-teaching jobs in China?

Are there any industries that are more likely to hire an entry-level foreigner?

Are there any websites or agencies that specialize in this kind of recruitment?

If you can be an English teacher, many School in China would do absolutely anything for Native English speaker. That would be your best bet, since I am assuming, you don't speak Chinese.

 

If you decide to enter China as English teacher, you should be aware Chinese are racists, and they're mostly looking for Caucasian teachers. 

You can find more info about that in previous posts here.

 

Good luck!

For most jobs, you will need a degree, and two years post degree experience. There is also a push by China to fill most jobs with Chinese people, rather than foreigners.

 

Most people work for a company in their home country, then get transferred to China later.

If you lack special skills you'll most likely find voluntary internships or an internship at very low pay. But look at any and every post in the big cities, I could be wrong.

Chefs....there are many chefs that are foreigners...anywhere you go you can find a foreign chef. It wouldn't be too hard you just have to go to a culinary school and you should be able to find a job in that sector!

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
