After looking over so much in regards to English teaching positions in China, I did see a huge influx during the Olympics. I was wondering....how is the market for English teaching jobs there now?

Hypothetical, for those of you who are working there now, if you lost your job tomorrow - how easy do you think it'd be to find a new one? How many options would you have?

I could get another job in 24 hours. Actually, I did because I thought my school (Aoji) would not renew my contract.

It turns out I was right, so my application to EF paid off. I will now have to pay for my own apt., work longer hours, and make slightly less money than before.
However, I won't have to do lesson planning! Very Happy
However, I can say that I have worked for EF, the McDonalds of English school franchises. Crying or Very sad
