    How Easy To Get A Job In China

    As a foreigner seeking employment in China, there are a number of avenues available to you. You can work for a Chinese company, or you can work for an international company with a branch in China. You can also start your own business.

    There are several criteria you need to meet in order to work in China. The first is that you must have a work visa, which will allow you to legally be in China and work. Your employer will provide this for you, and will sponsor your visa. The second is that you must have a bachelor's degree and relevant work experience.

    There are several types of employment visas, and these are dependent on the type of work you do. The first is an employment visa. This is for white collar workers in management, sales and marketing, legal, accounting and finance, and IT. This category also includes foreign students who have graduated from a Chinese university, and are employed by the university they studied at. The second is an expert work visa, which is for foreigners with special skills that are required in China. This includes teachers, translators, engineers and scientists. The third type is a creative work visa, which is for foreigners who have been recognized as 'high level' in their field, and who are able to contribute to China's development. The fourth type is a cultural exchange visa, for foreigners who have been invited to China by the government, or a foreign affairs organization.

    China employs a large number of foreigners. According to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, 20% of the staff working in foreign invested enterprises in China are foreign nationals.

    There are several different ways for foreigners to apply for employment in China. The first is to apply through a Chinese company. You can find these companies by searching on the internet, or you can contact an international company with a branch in China and ask them if they are hiring. The second is to apply directly to an international company. This is usually easier for foreigners with experience in China, as the company will be able to see your experience, and will be more likely to hire you. The third option is to start your own business. This is difficult, but it can be very rewarding, as you don't have to answer to anyone, and you can choose what hours you work.

    The first step in applying for a job is writing a CV. A CV is different from a resume, and it is important to know the difference. A resume is a summary of your life and work experience. A CV is a detailed and comprehensive record of your entire life history, including personal information such as parents' names, university degrees, and personal interests.

    A CV is usually required by Chinese companies, but it is not necessary for foreign companies. It is important to make sure your CV is in Chinese, as Chinese companies will not be able to understand English CVs. An example of a CV is attached.

    The next step in the process is to go through the interview process. There are two parts to the interview process. The first is an informal interview with a Chinese employee of the company. This is usually at the office, and can be conducted in English or Chinese. The second part is an interview with a representative of the company, usually conducted in Chinese. The first part is used to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the position, and the second part is used to determine if you are a suitable employee for the company.

    The next step is to negotiate employment package. This is not usually required by foreign companies, but it is important to know about it. The package will include salary, bonuses, social security, paid leave, and housing. It is important to negotiate everything, including salary, as this is the most important part of your package.

    The salary for foreigners in China is usually much higher than the salary for Chinese workers. There are several reasons for this. The first is that foreign companies are usually willing to pay more for a foreigner than a Chinese company. The second is that the government has a policy of encouraging foreign investment in China, and one way to encourage investment is to give foreigners higher salaries. The third reason is that foreign companies have a higher salary standard, as foreigners with ten years experience will be paid more than a Chinese person with ten years experience.

    It is important to negotiate with your potential employer, as a small increase in salary can make a big difference to your final package.
