    It looks extremely good. But the start date is past.

    There is another catch: Zhengzhou. It is one of the most polluted cities in China. I have not been there yet, but I keep track of its air quality. If you take this job, make sure to bring a gas mask.

    Interestingly, there is a Thai community in Zhengzhou. My wife knows a Thai woman who lives there.

    If you see another job that has a base salary of $2500 with housing and other solid benefits, then jump on it. But check out the air quality and make sure they have permission to hire a foreigner. Zhengzhou is northwest of my current location, and it is going to be a long bus ride. But I want to check it out. It is not as modern as Shanghai or Guangzhou, from what I am told.

    Some of those jobs look good. Suzhou is an especially attractive city: clean, modern, and it has a rich history. It is also very well connected by rail and bus. Suzhou is probably the most modern place I have seen in China, outside of parts of Shanghai (or Hong Kong).

    I would be wary of taking a job for 10-12K in Beijing. But the "settle in" allowance looks nice.

    Teaching literature in Shenzhen for 20K sounds good. There are so many opportunities.

    I'd pass.
    Shanghai's expensive, you can do better if you're qualified. I wouldn't take any job with a contingency on my monthly salary. IMO, pay should be standard with a bonus based on performance at the end of the contract.

    Take it before someone else does. It is decent to good. I like the meal bonus, the performance bonus, and the housing allowance is ok. You are going to be working a lot because 25 hours of classes is right up to the legal limit in China.

    The indicators are all there that it is good school. All those little bonuses add up.

    However, as a Canadian teacher just told me the other day, if you work in Shanghai you never have any money. There are just too many things to spend it on. But making 14,000 Yuan in Shanghai might be a lot better than making 6,100 Yuan (equivalent) in Khon Kaen (32K Baht). You are going to more than double your salary if you come to China, maybe triple.

    In Shanghai, many teachers work on the side and pull in around 1500 Yuan a week. There will be many opportunities to work part-time, and you are going to make a lot of money that way. Therefore, take that job above if you are also willing to do some work on the side.

    Standards are much, much higher in Chinese schools compared to Thai schools, overall, and you will probably enjoy that. A focus on test scores--a lot of hard work being done.

    Be ready to pay a chunk of change for the housing deposit.

    ^^^That salary is low especially if you get the lower end of it. And it says it is before taxes. The housing allowance is very low. I will be getting 7,000 rmb for housing and even that is bog standard for a small 1 bedroom. I hope the schools isn't near the center of town or that won't get you anything.. so maybe plan on renting a room with that amount. Completing a TEFL course in Beijing sounds shitty if you are already pretty qualified and have been teaching awhile as you've been, DG.

    China's a huge country, if you put some parameters for what you expect from a job it'll help with sorting through all the thousands of job openings there.....ie, location,saving money, gain specific work experience etc. Anything that doesn't fit your expectations can be tossed. It'll make the search alot simpler.

    When you first come to China, you do not have to land a prime job. If your salary triples from what you made in Thailand, you will think that is enough and you will be feeling sabaii mar. And the opportunities to teach outside of class are significant in a major city such as Shanghai. I just made a chunk of change teaching outside Shanghai, and I was giddy. I get treated as if I were a VIP in every school I work in, and those experiences are always professionally rewarding.

    Shanghai is a prime transportation hub, and and you can get to Japan, South Korea, North Korea (!), etc., very cheaply. I went to Japan, round-trip, for less that 3000 Baht last year.

    (By the way, if you feel a burning need to see North Korea, you can hitch a tour with Koryo Tours out of Beijing or Shanghai. Some go for around $1,000. I may not be able to resist.)

    I think it is definitely better to land a job on the outskirts of Shanghai considering the modest housing allowance that is listed above. The housing cost is going to be significant in Shanghai. So you must consider the location of the school. Commuting is not free, and you do not want to spend a lot of time on the train or bus, going and coming, every day.

    Come to China on a decent job with a reputable company or school. That is the key point. Don't get mesmerized by the money. After your first year, then go for the big raise. Get your feet wet first. After that you will know what is going on, and you can make a deeply informed decision. But as far as Shanghai goes, you want to be careful not to move to the center of town unless the benefits are high.

    This school listed above has all the signs of being a decent school. Like I said, it is better than making 28,000 Baht in Khon Kaen--because you can make that much just on the side, if you so desire.
