Basic Requirements for Expats to Work in China
Before making your decision to find job in China, one thing you should know first is that China has set some basic requirements for foreign talents and only you meet these requirements can you apply to work in China legally. Expats who want to work in China must hold Bachelor Degree or above with 2 Years of Working Experience. Moreover, expats should have Clean Criminal Background and do Medical Check. Last, as same as the Chinese retirement age, expats should under 55 (women) / 60 (men) years old.
Job-hunting in China
Many expats in China/oversea have the same concern that how to find hiring information in China without knowing Chinese. Actually language barrier is not more a big problem for job hunting even for living in China. Since hiring companies have urgent recruiting needs, recruiters will try their best to inform their target candidates about job openings by posting job info on main social media oversea. So actually facebook and LinkedIn are both useful ways for your job hunting. Joining in some work groups in these two platforms and checking all job info in different groups. After finding out the job occupation which you are interested in, contact the recruiter for more details and remember to check the credibility of this job info as well.
Jobsite for your Job Hunt in China
Using professional Job Website to seek for job in China is also a good method for your job hunting in China. In recent years, so many job websites are created especially for expats to find job in China. No to mention the English vision of job information in these job websites, expats can also build up their special online resume to promote themselves to Chinese recruiters. While the importance of building up completed online resume has been overlooked by many foreign job seekers. You must know that Chinese recruiters attach more importance to the working experience of candidates’ online resumes. They prefer to check candidates’ online resumes to look for some relative working experience and then judge whether they should contact candidates or not. So it can be said that you lost a good chance to promote yourself to Chinese recruiters by completing your online resume.
