The best jobs for foreigners in China
The Chinese economy has grown considerably since reforms began in 1980. China has plenty of chances to earn a decent salary for jobless people in other parts of the world like North America. The cost of living is lower and the country has a fascinating culture. Here are the best jobs that foreigners can expect to find in China.
This is how many expats get started after arriving in China. With so many public and private schools, universities and businesses needing qualified instructors it would be possible to pick up some work within days. The biggest cities will have the best paying jobs. Most schools will want job applicants to teach a demo class before hiring a foreign instructor. This is a common practice.
Working for a Multinational Company
The world's most well known companies are now operating in China as joint ventures. IBM, Dell, Coca-Cola, Siemens, Nokia, Honeywell and others have entered the Chinese market in recent years. There is a need for engineers, sales representatives, managers, and quality control specialists.
Although they may have studied it in school, most Chinese don't have a good practice of English. Other languages like French, German and Japanese are not understood at all. In many situations breakdowns in communication are frequent, and misunderstandings can get in the way of building successful relationships. Therefore, somebody fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese or another Chinese dialect can bridge the gap between two different languages.
As in other Asian countries, foreigners might find themselves in television and films. These days, seeing non-Chinese actors in local programs is common. The most famous Canadian in China is Mark Rowswell, who has been working in the country for several years as an actor and comedian. He is completely fluent in Mandarin. The best place to look for television and film jobs is in the classified sections of English language newspapers.
