Part-Time Jobs In China For Foreign Students
Many overseas students in China often want to know whether they can work part-time or part-time while studying in China.
Traditionally, international students can not work in China during their study period, and foreign citizens can not obtain visas to work in China without at least two years of post study work experience, which makes it almost impossible for international students to transition to work visas after completing their studies.
But with the relaxation of Chinese government policies,according to the regulations of the Chinese government, international students are not allowed to work during their study. However, sometimes part-time or internships are allowed. Teaching English is especially easy for native English speakers. Many native English speaking students choose to teach English mainly to earn some part-time income and increase daily communication with local people.
Tutors with teaching background or ESL teaching certificate may have some advantages in finding tutoring positions, especially in regular English teaching schools requiring tutors to provide higher education. However, in most cases, previous teaching experience is not necessary.

As an international student, if you want to work part-time in China, you must obtain an internship visa. The visa must be guaranteed by an authorized educational institution.

What part-time jobs can international students apply for in China?

There are many ways to find opportunities in your industry. As China is a booming economy, many students have found opportunities to show themselves in their own country. For example, students from the Central Academy of drama often look for roles in Chinese films. Students at Beijing Language and Culture University are often asked to support international companies that are localizing their content.
You can look for opportunities on the Internet by watching advertisements in University cafes, or through websites such as the latest classified advertisements released today. You can also participate in social activities. Another way is to ask your university professors, because they will have industry ties that can help make an introduction. You can also contact the company yourself.
If you speak Chinese, it will greatly enhance your appeal to opportunities. So if you're going to stay in China for a while, it's a good idea to concentrate on learning Chinese at the beginning, and then you can apply your Chinese skills to future practice.
