How to find a GREAT job in China?

As China’s economy continues to grow, there are more and more people looking to China to work. Overseas Chinese are looking to move back, and talented people from all over the world are interested to move to China.

Currently there are not that many job portals in China for this market. One of those in Beijing is thebeijinger. Linkedin is also a good resource. There are some local platforms ones, such as: boss app. The language is all in Chinese.

The other way, and probably the best way to look for roles is through networking. Guanxi, and relationships is very important in China. There is a saying that most job opportunities are never posted online, because they are filled by people in their personal network. It is a good idea to spend time building and growing your personal network in China. There are also a number of job fairs in China – at universities and elsewhere in the city.
