China NewsFlash: CFTU Now Provides Free White-Listed Job Placements For China Foreign Teachers Directly With EmployersIn an effort to eliminate the exploitation of ESL & TEFL newcomer teachers, our board of directors voted to team up with SAFEA and put candidates directly in contact with the 879 white-listed kindergartens, schools, and universities in China, free of charge, with no obligation nor any strings attached.  We normally only provide this service to our members but after recent deportations of over 1,200 expats for visa violations (due to unethical and unlicensed agents and recruiters), we decided we would help as many people as our limited resources allow.  As you may know we are staffed 100% by volunteer expat teacher colleagues.

 

Thhis new program has already begun on July 15th and we will send your resume, photo, and cover letter that identifies the five most important issues to you (from those below) to 25 white-listed employers that matches most of your desires/needs.  The school will contact you directly with no interference or dialgue with the CFTU. We will continue to send your resume to 25 whitelisted employers every week until YOU notify us by email to stop.  There are no fees, obligations, nor string attached. We simply want to help you circumvent the predatory agents.  Please select the five most important issues to you below and put them in your cover letter.

Send your resume, photo, and cover letter to FreePlacement@ChinaForeignTeachersUnion.org  and within a week the FAOs should start contacting you directly and you are responsible for your own negotiations and contracts. We simply do not have enough volunteers over summer vacation to do any more than this. Thank you for your understanding and good luck to you all.  SAFEA has given us over 400 vacancies in 21 Provinces to fill (30% now and 70% in September) but only 321 of the 400 are white-listed schools. All placements are made based on our best efforts and availabilty.
