    1) Go buy some clothes : i suffer about i can not look quietly at clothes, you always have at least 1 or 2 annoying sellers on your back...i run away everytime, im allergic to this selling method

    2) Do administrative tasks (bank, chinapost...)

    Hahahaha ... Qwertryt ... dont mind me, but if you need to find job, you dont usually get reasonable salary, on the other hand, if the job comes to you, you dont get reasoable salary either ... because it is most likely "unreasonably high" ... I once worked as a English trainer in a Taiwanese firm, and they often recruited "left overs" from Lucent, and they were paid those unreasonably high salary, only because the boss himself came from Lucent ...

    ... but if you are good, the job will find you ... good luck :)

    Hahahaha ... Qwertryt ... there is an old Chinese saying 穷则变,变则通, which means something like: when one is poor, one needs to change/adapt, then find a new way to become better ...

    If your problem, like me, is that you are not a true native speaker, then you might want to find out how you stand out from the crowd (your difference, or edge), then use that to your advantage ... for example ...

    One month ago, I had dinner with a friend from Hong Kong, but she was actually born and raised in Europe ... being that she is Chinese (by DNA) and most people in HK (with similar experience) have fairly good English skill, her advantage in Hong Kong is not so obvious ... but if she is in China, she does stand out from among the crowd, being that she has her Chinese appearance, while also speaks native, and has overseas working experience etc ...

    So, think about your "edge", and then make use of it ... hope that helps :)

    "to get high without being paranoid"

    Try basil. Or chilling out.

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    Hahahaha ... I actually (and honestly) know what you meant, because I had the same experience, though I was just trying to explain it from a different angle ...

    I had also visited many of those job fairs in the past, some even specifically for expats, but most of them were looking for teachers (mostly English, some were specific subjects, and with a very small number looking for technical experts) ...

    I only said what I said, because we have the examples from "both ends" in our family ... I came here to look for a job, and my wife was given a job to come here, and guess who is higher up in the food chain? (I hoped that sounded funny!)

    Someone from overseas once asked me a similar question, and my advice to him (based on my own case and observations about others) was to go back home, i.e. leave China, find a job that offers possibility to come to China, then given the opportunity, you could be picked or offered to come back here ...

    In a word, it is not only about the experience or expertise, but more about the opportunity ...

    I don't think there are any good opportunities in China unless you want to work for yourself, in which case there are amazing opportunities. If you either don't have money or the right connections or an interest in entrepreneurship, then I don't think there's any reason to be working in a place like Beijing.

    The exception would be people who want to learn Chinese (me) or people who are white or black, speak some English, and didn't or couldn't work wherever home was, because the 10-20k/mo they can make as English teachers is better than the wages back home for a lot of these folk.
