Jobs in China

CHINA'S ECONOMY IS BOOMING RIGHT NOW. Why not be a part of it?

As of 2013, there were reported to be 13,000 Australians living in China, running business of various kinds, like the Superstar Kindy school.

For teaching English, the recruitment process usually takes 3/4 months. A large part of this revolves around procuring a work visa. The process seems to start with a Skype or telephone interview. During the interview, you might be asked to perform a mock lesson, on the spot. For some reason, many of the recruiters have Western names, even if they are 100 per cent native mainland Chinese. As Middle Kingdom Life reports, a medical physical is required for all foreigners who live in China for more than six consecutive months.
