My colleague who has been teaching at a private international school in China for 2 years just sent this to me and it is so true... (I was wooed by over a dozen China job recruiters last year)

For anyone even thinking about teaching in China, prepare for the following lies and then read the links at the bottom so your wallet will not go on a sudden diet...

1.) You MUST have a TEFL certificate to teach English in China.

2.) You do not need a Z visa to teach in China for your first 90 day probationary period

3.) Foreigners have no employee rights in China for one year after arrival

4.) You really don't need a university degree to teach English in China

5.) Everyone works 6 days a week

6.) Marketing & Sales is part of every China foreign teacher's job

7.) The air and water pollution is not as bad as they say.

8.) You will save at least $20,000 a year working in China

9.) You cannot get a good job in China without a recruiter like me and TEFL certificate

10.) Once you sign a contract you are stuck in that crappy job for at least a year and if you quit you will be blacklisted and have your visa revoked
.

Now here is the truth...

P.S. But even more important than the lies, is what a China job recruiter will never ever tell you: https://www.scam.com/showthread.php?704467-UPDATED-China-Liars-List-ESL-TEFL-Teacher-Job-Scams-Internships-Exporters-etc-BLACKLIST&p=1944475#post1944475[/code]

You know, if the recruiters and job agents were forced to tell the truth, their income would drop by 50%. Lies = sales. So they care most about money and least about their clients. I get my own jobs by using the employer contact list at https://reddit.com/r/cftu.

Although it is very promising to URL REMOVED there are various situations that expats may encounter scams, here are some tips to remind you.
1. Too Good to Be True
Employees may seem too eager to hire you and offer you a high-paid salary, even if you don't have bachelorís degree, teaching experience, certificate and relevant qualifications, etc.

2. Visa Scam
If you are hired without a work visa, that would be a major scam. In the absence of a work visa, you will not be able to advocate for unpaid wages in an arbitration court. What's worse, If you get caught working on a tourist or student visa, you can be fined, put in an administrative holding facility for up to ten days, or get deported.

3. Contract Does Not Match Verbal Promise
For instance, false recruiters promise you an international school position. While in reality, they start you off in one school then shift you to another and another without proper reason, cause, or your permission.
