I have many friends in USA contacting me how to get a job in China or Hong Kong. Talking to many head hunters here in Asia, I have been building up a list of resources.
Things you should prepare to get a Chinese job:
- Have higher education in your home country – Chinese really respect the diploma. Sorry for college dropouts who become multimillionaire internet dudes, but if you want to move in China and get employment, defintely get a higher education diploma.
- Resume (CV) – You need a nice, professional resume. In China, they are used to seeing a photo of the applicant as well, so don’t feel strange if they ask for a headshot photograph.
- Cover letter – be genuine why you want to come to China and work. Chinese sometimes wonder why would a foreigner want to leave their home country to come here, so telling the truth is always the best way. Chinese like a nice story!
Below is a list of some websites, “I suggest that your friend takes a look at the following websites for job postings.”
