MAYBE BECAUSE YOU USED CAPITALS ON YOUR APPLICATIONS?   

 

Employers and recruiters are lazy! If they're not interested in you then they just won't reply. 

 

Ask yourself seriously. Are you qualified for the jobs you're applying for? If yes then look again at your resume and how you apply for jobs. 

 

As an example, on another China based website I see job adverts posted that say "contact me by email or PM". Then I see people responding with "Hi, I'm interested and/or qualified". I'd ignore those types if I was the recruiter as they obviously can't follow simple instructions.

Obviously, they aren't interested in your CV. Chinese employers won't reply if your CV misses something (photo) or for any other reason (as NNET).

 

I usually apply everywhere and if no replies, I am keep sending my CV, till I don't get an interview invitation or Contract -show.

I am Non-native English teacher working in China since 2009.

 

So, don't do it western way by applying only to a few offers. Apply EVERYWHERE till you won't get a reply, i.e. 'don't count how many resumes you sent'.

 

Good luck!

Maybe some of those schools don't have the legalities lined up.  Could be your the wrong age. Maybe even the wrong gender. If your replying to ads for a job in the fall, you are unlikely to here from them before June. It could be that you asked for more than 10,000 rmb per month.

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
