As Mr. Benn (or someone just like him
) has stated, normally, to get a work (Z) visa you need at least two years teaching experience. That being said, there are recruiters out there who will promise you anything and everything... and not deliver. Beware! Do not
come to China without first having a work visa.
A job in China can offer a great lifestyle with lots of vacation (4+ months a year); but relative to the west, pays very little. It's not a place for a young person to start a career. In fact, your China experience may work against you when you return.
If while you're here you plan to persue a Masters or PhD you could make a career of it. Otherwise, it's a 'dead end'.
