How To Find A Job In China
The best way to find a job in China is to have an acquaintance work in a Chinese company and help you contact the job opportunities. What they may need is a skilled you. If you don't have such a personal relationship, the easiest way to find a job in China is through the Internet.
Chinese companies prefer to publish recruitment information on local Chinese websites. Although some websites are also run in English, most of the posts actually published are in Chinese, so you need some basic Chinese knowledge to understand them.
How to apply for a job in China
A letter explaining why you are qualified for the job you are interested in. Please note that cover letters are not common in China, but you should at least explain why you want to apply for the job.
Resume or resume, about two pages long. There is no formal cover letter rule in China, but your resume should include at least some personal information, work experience, education, skills and achievements, and career goals. Please note that Chinese performance style is quite modest, so any "bragging" in the resume will quickly leave a bad impression. Stick to the facts and let them speak for themselves.
Copies of your diploma and other degrees. As education is very important for Chinese employers, you should get as many degrees as you can according to your application.
If the company or organization you are applying for is interested in your profile, the next step may be a telephone interview. If you are applying for a large company, you may also need to go through a series of interviews. As with any interview, be humble, but be clear about your motivation and skills to suit yourself for the job.
Before the interview, first put yourself in the position of the recruitment company, and then ask yourself: why do they hire you instead of an experienced Chinese who knows the Chinese environment and may earn only a part of the salary? You may order? If you are applying to an international company: why shouldn't they send internal employees who already know the company and business to China? Answering these questions will help you understand your true market value and determine the company that may have a reason to hire you.
English Teaching Positions in China
English teaching is available in high schools, universities and more and more private language schools. They are usually advertised through email and telephone contact, or directly by schools, or through employment agencies. Some intermediary agencies match teachers with Chinese schools, provide pre-school training, and only charge a small fee. Other organizations only provide low-wage or voluntary work, and charge a relatively high insurance fee, training fee and ongoing support fee.
International teaching opportunities can also be found at large job fairs. Candidates need public school teaching certificates issued by the government, and plan to participate in job fairs for on-site interviews.
English teaching jobs normally require that you are a native speaker and have an English teaching certificate like the TEFL (Teaching English as a foreign language). If you have a master’s degree this will not only increase your chances of finding a position but also your salary.
Finding a job through an internship in China
Many people who go to China to study are also internships in foreign companies or public institutions. Most internships in China are unpaid, but they often bring good job opportunities, whether in a company or institution with which you are internship, or in other foreign companies that are usually more willing to hire people with certain work experience in China .
