Working in China

Anyone worked long term in China? Any thought, advice, experiences??
I've been contacted via LinkedIn from a large Engineering company wanting experienced Senior Engineers. Wondering if it's worth perusing.

I've had similar "offers" twice. Unless you have the offer via a reputable agency, I'd be very wary as this might be a scam.

If money is asked for up front, break off contact immediately.

If everything is koshe then you might get a decent wage. I know of lads working in the Middle East and the Far East earning crazy money.
Great set of lads, go for it
:lol:

That had crossed my mind, however the initial emails quoted free travel, an assistant, accommodations and meals. Might be worth going just for a look, unless I come back with one kidney or something. But anyway, if that happens the jokes on them the amount I used to drink 😉

Have you done an internet search for the company that contacted you?

You will need to apply for a visa which can take some time to approve. Just to bear in mind.

Yes, XCMG. 6th largest construction machinery company in the world. I've worked for the two biggest however getting to the time of life where if I could make some good money I could set up for early retirement.
I think they're a safe bet, although you might try to ring the person at the company.

If you get through to the person concerned at the company obstensively to discuss the offer, then it will be a good indicator the offer is legit.

Unless Liam Neeson is your dad I'd give it a miss.
