Good link.

For any new teacher who is thinking of coming to China:

Quote:
The U.S. Embassy cannot act as a legal advisor or negotiate business or personal grievances on behalf of individual citizens.

We can neither investigate nor certify employers.

It is up to each individual to evaluate potential employers before signing a contract.

Very Happy I have to tell you that I was impressed by that post. There is so much information on the U.S. Embassy's website, and although it's true that you have to check out each institution yourself the U.S. Embassy is surprisingly helpful.

I suppose the British Embassy would just have some snooty little comment about not being able to advise, help, assist or anything. I'm from the U.K.

My first job in China was in a university, and it was NOT in a popular or trendy area. So I decided to check it out, by getting information from westerners who taught there. I decided to go, and it was not a mistake. I enjoyed teaching there. But this was not in Beijing. It was in the provinces, and there was a lot less of McDonalds and stuff like that. It was the real CHINA. I was happy but some people were not! I came with realistic expectations. I'd advisse anyone who wants to come to China to peruse the U.S. Embassy's advice page and think carefully.

I'd have to agree; at least from where I'm clicking it, this no longer seems to be a functional URL.

I would like to get the ball rolling in this thread, since it is a sticky, that for the most part schools are here to work with the teachers. It doesn't help either party to lie or deceive. What we need to pay attention to are the rules the Chinese government are enforcing. What the US embassy is saying and what you discuss in your interviews with schools are secondary.

We all need to realize these new rules being enforced. I am currently being told that as an American, I need the following before I can get an FEC with a new school and new residence permit (this would be the same for those needing a Z visa):

1. college diploma notarized and authenticated through a Chinese consulate

2. TEFL, also make sure it is authenticated

3. crimimal background check with fingerprints

Start the process NOW with all, then you don't have to wait for your employer to realize you need number 2, then number 3, prolonging things.
