The [unprintable expletive] Chinese ads flood every search. Why are there no Japan, Hong Kong, etc. categories to click on for job offers? I'm looking for Japan or Hong Kong, but I can't use this site for that. Those ubiquitous Chinese ads are so obnoxious. They write long ads and manage to put the name of every country in the world in them, so they show up on every search, not to mention intentionally posting them in the wrong categories all the time.

Okay, that was a bit of a rant. I was feeling really frustrated, but my point is valid, I think. I don't know the technicalities involved, so this may or may not be feasible, but what would solve the problem is to split up the Asian job boards to China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Rest of Asia. That way, you would have a fighting chance of plowing through all the Chinese posts to find what you want.

I would just like to agree with you there Mojoski.

I'm also looking for a job in Japan; I suscribed to the "ESL jobs in Asia" RSS feed but the only ads I see are for China or Korea. It would really be easier (for us at least) if there was a separate section for Japan.

Hello Mojoski and hwbookworm,

Thanks for taking the time to comment, and for using our site. I am one of the staff of ESL Employment and ESL Jobs Forum. We really appreciate having you as valued users as ESL Employment. I wanted to add my two cents to my collegue's Union Jack's previous response. I have good news in that we are going to be launching a new version of ESL Employment in less than a month. It has a ton of great new features and we've been working the past two years to build the new system. One thing you will be able to do is sort jobs and adjust your feeds based on various types of areas, including just cities, so this should really improve your searching efficiency. There will be loads of new features for employers too, which will increase the number of openings you'll find on here. All in all we really hope to add to the community with the new site.

We welcome any future comments, and thanks again for participating. All the best with your respective careers.

Rich
