Best Jobs For Foreigners In China
It can be said that few countries in the world offer jobs to foreigners like China. About ten years ago, foreigners' work in China was mainly limited to English teaching and manufacturing. But today, more and more industries are looking for talents. Here are seven typical jobs lists for foreigners in China.
English teaching is the gateway for many foreigners to enter China. The qualifications required to teach English depend on the officer you want to be. It ranges from a college degree and IELTS certification for a native English speaker to a foreigner found on the street by someone whose son needs some extra help at school. Usually, the truth tends to the former, and those who want to work in China should be prepared accordingly.
In the long run, many English teachers in China may have a narrow learning range. Although some people continue to run their own schools and have achieved great success, this is only a small part. However, the advantage of English teaching is that it provides foreigners with a foundation to learn about China, learn the language and make the necessary connections so that they can jump into another occupation at the lowest cost.
Teachers in international schools
Although the vast majority of teachers in China are English teachers, you can also find many international school teachers who specialize in a series of subjects in many Tier-1 and tier-2 cities. These teachers range in age from kindergarten to sixth grade. Generally, schools follow the curriculum of the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom.
In most cases, these schools want to hire teachers with at least a bachelor's degree in education and some experience. As a result, they are mostly employed directly from abroad. That said, foreigners who already live in China still have the opportunity to work in international schools, even if they don't have a teaching degree.
Some international schools are willing to hire local English teachers. They show a serious attitude towards education, have adapted to the local culture, and will become reliable teaching staff. You may be able to start a support position and earn a lower salary than other qualified colleagues, but this is a great opportunity to enter a higher salary level and start a career that lasts a lifetime.
Quality inspection expert / Product Manager
Some readers may be surprised at how many top manufacturing managers in Chinese multinationals are currently English teachers at first.
Back 10 or 15 years, Western companies have been trying to find talent to supervise their manufacturing in China. Few would like to spend more than a week in the country at a time, or even speak the language or have no idea of dealing with local employees.
Therefore, when these companies find young foreign English teachers who have settled down in China and can speak this language, they are willing to try even if they do not have the education or work background of relevant industries. Having on-site personnel who can communicate directly with suppliers and local employees is a valuable asset.
It's true that China's manufacturing boom wasn't a decade ago, but many companies still understand the value of foreigners adapting to local culture, learning languages and proving that they have the right professional ethics.
Marketing Specialist / Social Media Specialist / SEO specialist
In the past five to 10 years, Chinese companies have become more and more export-oriented in their sales methods, and the Internet has become more and more smart. With the rise of Chinese technology and e-commerce companies, there are many apple, Facebook and Amazon that want to develop into a broader world. These companies understand the value of online marketing, social media and SEO.
So far, most of these companies do not tend to hire directly from overseas. Therefore, for foreigners who have already worked in China, there are many opportunities to work in these industries. These jobs offer great opportunities for areas that are booming. With rich experience in China, you can easily return home to serve a large technology company.
