Our important advice for the people who are looking for
a job at China
The most important thing is, you must know more details of the background about
your employer, before you go to China.
** Does the employer really do anything for you (including stay & working
In order to recruit foreign teachers to teach in their schools, the schools must
pass strict government requirements as to employ foreign teachers. They should
be granted by the government the rights.
Some employers in China, whom have no license for hiring foreign teacher, still
hope you will work for them. They can not apply for a working permit for you, so
you will have trouble if your traveling visa expires. Usually, your employer
will tell you to leave China for a few days, or go to neighboring area such as
Hong Kong, Macao, you need to extends your traveling visa, then back to China to
continue working for them. In China, it is illegal if a foreigner has a job
without a working visa and work permitting. If the government found you
illegally working in China, the law will punish your employer & you.
To work legally, you need to get a work visa (z-via). For an ESL teacher, it is
virtually important to be aware of which school is illegal and which is legal in
order to make a nice living and teaching in China.

time, as promised?
Some employers like to promise you some good benefits & salary when they sign a
contract with you, but if your employer has not enough students they can not pay
salary & benefit on time. If you are working without working visa your job's
rights will be hurt. That happens often in China.
We suggest you must think of these problems before you choose an employer.

Some employers offer high pay but may not include some benefits, and may request
longer hours, so You should take the following points into consideration:
A, Number of hours worked per week, is there office hours and the days of week
school is held?
B, Does your employer offer full room and board? Housing being shared or
C, Does your employer offer any vacation? Is it with salary?
D, Does your employer cover the cost of your airfare?
E, Does your employer pay for the Electricity & Cooking Gas Charge?
You should know the cost of living in Shenzhen, Shanghai, Beijing such major

by compensable factors such as teaching hours, employer size, employee
credentials, years of experience and others. so DO NOT use the wage number as
