Guangzhou Offers Job Fair for Expatriates Living in the City
An Israeli company that produces medical devices revealed that they were in need of expatriates workers during the job fair for expatriates that was held in Guangzhou last Saturday. Quasar Electronics Co. Ltd. in Shenzhen said that there are nine senior level jobs available including a spot as chief technical executive. The company is located along the booming private businesses that are found along the Pearl River Delta region.
A representative from the fair said an average salary being offering for job vacancies right now is around 15,000 yuan but to reach this bracket one should have five years of experience in the industry. Aside from having experience an understanding of the Chinese culture and cross cultural teamwork is also important.
Aside from Quasar, Shenzhen based BYD is also looking for professionals in the fields of marketing, human resources, finance and management that have Spanish or Portuguese skills in the company’s bid to penetrate South and Central America markets. The job fair for expatriates is the only event of its kind that was held by the State Administration for Foreign Experts Affairs which is geared in helping young and experience expatriates living in Shenzhen to seek employment in the manufacturing, trade and service industry.
Held as an annual event in Guangzhou, the job fair for expats sees many foreign jobseekers that speaks fluent Chinese, as most companies specified that one of their preferred skill before hiring is the ability to speak the local language.
