Here are some tips to help you find a part-time job in China.
>> Do some online search
Visiting some sites such as the Beijinger to see whether there are part-time jobs are available. You can search by type of position or location or any other filter conditions.
>> Apply in person
Walk through your local town or the mall and you'll see Help Wanted signs in many storefront windows. If you don't see a sign, ask about openings. The same scenario applies to resort or seasonal employment. Applying in person is often the best mechanism for finding a job.
>> Use your network
Be aware of the fact that many, if not most, job openings aren't advertised. Tell everyone you know that you are looking for work. Ask if they can help. While an acquaintance was offered a job over the phone by an employer his friend had given his resume to. Networking really does work!
>> Be alert
If you are interested in retail employment, keep you eye out for "help wanted" signs in store windows when you're at the mall or in town. Ask the Manager if the store is hiring if you don't see a sign.
