Q: Where would a qualified English speaking nurse begin to look for a job in Shanghai ?

My girlfriend is about to join me here in Shanghai. She has asked me to look for potential employers. As a graduate nurse with a masters in hospital administration I thought this would be an easy assignment but so far I have had no luck, this is despite her in addition to English, speaking both Russian and Italian. Now as her time of arrival approaches I am getting stressed. Can anyone help with suggestions.

Nursing jobs pay horribly here in China if you work for a local hospital.  What I would do is check out all of the foreign clinics and send them a resume/cv with a cover letter explaining that she will be in Shanghai soon and give a brief description of skills.  Here are some places I would suggest:

http://www.parkwayhealth.cn/

http://www.unitedfamilyhospitals.com/

http://www.americanobgyn.com

Honestly, if she speaks English, Italian, and Russian, there are MUCH better jobs she could get her for a lot more money.

no matter what hospital she works in she will need to speak chinese as well. also she will be paid the same as the local workers (low pay) her best bet is to teach english at a medical college but you could look for private doctors offices or clinics that mainly service foreigners

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
