You will be walking into a professional environment. One big advantage you have in accepting work with these people is that you have me, an American, their first foreign teacher, to tell you the real deal and smooth the move to China. Today I made an off-hand remark when the head of the English Department said she needed to hire some more native-speaking English teachers. I asked her if I could get first shot at finding some. She said yes. If you are interested, get your paperwork together and write me. If you do not have a real degree, please do not apply. The Chinese will scrutinize your credentials. It is a good job in a good place with a low cost of living. There are small perks which are not listed, such as some meals and vacation money, and an extra day off here and there. There will also be a guaranteed pay raise for those who sign again, but that exact amount is not yet set in stone. It will probably be 10%. They don't play games with your pay or benefits, and the standards are high across the board. The free housing is sparkling clean and peaceful. The Chinese make it easy to bring one's family, another big plus. Thailand is not that far away, lots of flights from Nanjing and Shanghai. Huai'an is not a party town. It is not a booming metropolis. They call it a small town. Not a whole lot of foreign faces. It is really China. I have been treated well since the moment I got here. I am not waving their red flag. I am just saying how it is. I bet they will give you some money for expenses once you arrive, ask what you need, take you out to eat, etc. That is how they are. Write with your CV if you are interested, and I will hand your info off to the HR department in the coming two weeks. If you want to send your CV encrypted, then please tell me and we will set that up with my Hushmail or Tutanota. The name of the company is Jia Yi Education. As we speak, it is going international.
