    thats not shabby (the max salary that is)

    as per what people write, negotiation is common there. if so, pushing that even higher might result in quite a tasty offer.

    If my geography is correct you'd be close to the Russian border so it's likely to be freezing there and depending on the local industry, heavily polluted. However if you can tolerate the freezing cold and possible pollution it's a good salary even at the bottom end as the cost of living is likely to be pretty cheap locally. However you'll be far away from civilisation ...!

    Out of pure curiosity, I googled the place and it does get pretty cold. The average temperature in winter is -18c and can get as low as -39c so pack some thermals. It's an industrial city based heavily on the oil industry. The pictures I found look pretty dull, it’s and industrial city in NE China so perhaps not too surprising. On the up side, the cost of living is cheap in China or so I’m told and I’m guessing this place would be on the lower end of the scale, so maybe a good opportunity to save some money. It sounds like they want someone for the long haul too.

    Inner Mongolia to the west, Russia to the north and east, and Manchuria to the south. I'm definitely in on this one!

    There are thousands of jobs like the op posted in China at the moment. Get on serious teachers and you will get many ads like the above. Depends on your salary expectations and standards, but be careful about language mills and the salary posted. I've heard that sometimes they post salaries that are higher than they actually give. Contact the person (recruiter) directly to find out more. There are many recruiters who post on serious teachers (if that is the site you are talking about).

    Why would anyone want to go there to work?
    It's not a job offer, it's a vacancy.

    It's a change from the tropics.
    It's an opportunity to experience how 1/4 to 1/3 of the world communicates.

    I don't even know what the required alphabet soup means, and then there's my age, and I don't know if they'd accept my Thai license. I won't be applying when my contract ends next year. But, it would certainly appeal to others.

    For a change of scenery. For a chance to try something new. For the money. If one is qualified, the international schools in China pay a bit better than their counterparts in Thailand.

    Take it easy on him. English is not his first language.

    Was that really necessary? Please read the part on top, it's a job offer.

    I mean there specifically, not China..someone living here 10 years+ wanting to up sticks and move to a freezing, barren (enter word here)
    After watching 'Our Guy in China' it certainly looks like the future for English teaching, for everything in fact. But at least somewhere along the Yangzee.

    There is a job on offer. It's not a job offer.

    One's getting a new job and one's hearing about a vacancy..not a very fine hair.
