    Is there a salary range or will interviewees be asked that annoying question 'How much do you think we should pay you?' ?

    i hate that question ... i always want to answer: "10% more than you can afford"

    This question selects between the unconfident ones, who ask for much to less money but get a job, and the confident, who they did not want anyways ...

    @Bridget, 

    What is the salary range? ;) 

    I'm not being bitter or hateful when I say this (honestly!), but are people in the recruitment market in China actively encouraged/taught to promote the idea that the employer would be doing you a favour by hiring you, and that you should care less about what they are offering you than what they want from you?  I'm not trying to attack your post or anything, it just always surprises me when I read job advertisements like yours that focus way more on what the uare, what they need from y and what responsibilities you'll have without  really explaining why you should want to take the job and what the job will do for you.

    Hahahahaha ... the employment situation in China, or the general mindset, does not encourage "what's in it for me", which might be why I have heard many people leaving within 6 months or one year ...

    ::xuedi:: ... years ago, I have learnt one answer that might help, and it was something like this:

    "I am sure you (or "the company", to sound a bit more indirect) will pay me for what I am worth" ...

    ... however, the China's logic is that employee is not worth much to employers these days ...

    Bridget ... the Admin (or Biz Admin?) degree, and three years of working experience might be a bit tough to pass ...

    .. the majority of girls here, as good as their English might be, are either recent graduates or have a few years in their specific areas, meaning that AA or PA would not be too attractive to them ...

    My suggestion: an English major, or someone with less than three years of exp ...
