Be careful when you are out looking for ESL jobs in China. Job postings for jobs in China are now starting to become overrun with recruiters and agents. The problem is that they contact you and it is difficult to tell that they are flaky recruiters and not administrators or HR employees working for a specific school. So essentially you think a school is really interested in you, and it turns out that your wonderful hiring school contact is just a recruiter and has no decision making in the hiring process at all. These recruiters will not let you know or in any way let on to the fact that they are recruiters.

At some point teachers are going to realize that the ESL industry is in it's death throes. The above is one good example. It used to be that when a recruiter contacted you they had already sorted the hiring out with the school. Not anymore. It is now a Hansel and Gretel situation with these recruiters. There are now recruiter flakes breaking into online teaching possibilities. The online company that you think is interested in your potential as an online teacher turns out to be nothing but a recruiter rounding up individual students.

Wait, if a "recruiter" is rounding up students and organizing classes would that not make them a manager of an online school and not a recruiter. Things have been like this for a long time here. It is probably more problematic now because of the rules regarding travel and quarantines added to the upped requirements to get legal as a teacher in general.
