Wow this Laowai Career Center scam has legs! They are still running ads all over the internet and spending a fortune with Google AdWords.

Re: DIY... Check out an agent or recruiter in only 2 hours...

I just made an interesting discovery... This OP post was made back in 2014 when there were at least 100 China job agents and TEFL recruiters advertising on line. Now there just seems to be about a dozen recruiters, but they are all using 5-10 alias names each! I suggest the newbies read this here be...

Re: Which online TEFL certificates are VALID in China?

Since there is no international standards established for TEFL certification, Chinese employers do not give much weight nor credence to TEFL certificates, and dismiss those that were obtained through on online or CD course. But they also recognize the fact that TEFL courses are money-makers so many ...

Re: How to deal with rich spoiled Chinese students -"little emperors" ?

I know how aggravating and annoying that can be. But mothers rule the education world in China friend.

Re: Does a Master's trump a Bachelor's in China; S.Korea; Vietnam; Taiwan?

You would think the answer is yes...but its not. In China every employer wants to pay as little as possible. Having a MBA or Phd makes you less appealing to employers because they don't want to pay you more. I am in the same boat as you. If you get a non-teaching job it MAY come in handy but don't c...

Re: Why you shouldn’t believe the CFTU myths about China

My first job in China paid me 12,000 a month plus a furnished apartment. That was five years ago. I am now earning 20,000 a month and I never found my jobs through any BS ad online. If someone offers you less than 12,000 a month they plan to skim part of your salary or it is a public school in some ...
