The Expat Job Market in Beijing
Diplomatic employees and foreign reporters employed by the several embassies and international press offices located around the city account for a significant proportion of the foreign population in Beijing. Other expats are sent to the capital as part of their usual corporate duties at their regional office. Chinese and multinational corporations often maintain a presence in Beijing, regardless of where their headquarters or manufacturing facilities are located around China. As a result, they maintain tight ties with officials in the capital's government bureaucracy.
Foreign assignments, on the other hand, are now seeing increased competition from so-called "flexpats." Foreign personnel are often employed for short-term assignments and fly in and out rather than transferring their whole lives and families to China for an extended period of time; these employees are referred to as "China hires" or "frequent flyer assignments" in the United States. If you are not expected to be sent to a flexpatriate or expatriate assignment in the near future, the following ideas will assist you in your job search in Beijing.
Visas, work permits, and employment opportunities are all available.
Obtaining a visa and work permit for China (the so-called Z visa, which derives from the Chinese term zhyuán, which means 'employee') is contingent on receiving an official invitation to the nation from the host country. You will require a work license from the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Labor and Social Security in order to get the visa. However, in order to be considered for teaching posts, you must first get formal recognition as a foreign expert from the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs (SAFEA).
A work offer from a China-based firm that is legally authorized to hire foreigners is required in order to get an employment license. These companies include multi-national branches, foreign-invested enterprises, and local Chinese corporations that are all located in China. The latter, on the other hand, is quite improbable unless you have great Mandarin abilities.
Candidates with hard skills and professional experience have a distinct edge in the current state of the Beijing economy, which is characterized by rapid growth. Engineering, medical technology, environmental technology, the chemical industry, pharmaceuticals, information and communications technology, research and development, intellectual property law, international patent issues, and finance are examples of such businesses. As a result, people with management consulting and project management abilities are in great demand.
Whether you truly need to speak Mandarin at work or whether English would enough is dependent on the specific organization and job description you are working in. A fundamental, or even better, a thorough understanding of business Mandarin will only help your chances of landing a job in China, given the rising number of exceptionally well-qualified Chinese university graduates who are also proficient in the English language.
