Teaching in China is the lowest paying job a foreigner could possibly find, and by using an agent they get paid even less! Why would anyone use and agent, which is what the OP seems to be, when they can get hired directly by the schools??? Hundreds of ads placed by the schools can be found at any of the below English language portals...

www.echinacities.com
www.chinasmack.com
www.cityweekend.cn
www.chinahot.com

And for those that are absolutely convinced that they want to teach in China, as I did for two years after being swindled on an investment deal, I urge you strongly to read this article first...

I suggest anyone who even thinks about teaching ESL or any other subject in China reads about all the teacher scams at www.ChinaScamBusters.com and check the "CFTU Blacklist" before you sign anything.

FYI... The CFTU is now giving free job placements in China with no strings attached. Strange but true. You can read for yourself at chinaforeignteachersunion.com

Just a word or two of advise for anybody considering becoming an English teacher in China. I see so many adverts and links advertised on forums, and I know that when I was initially interested in the idea, it felt like an absolute blizzard of information online. From Z Visas, to TEFL this and TEFL that, from "don't go through an agent", to "you'd better not apply directly to a school" and of course offers of the perfect, fully paid for trip and all the gold in the world! Where there is money to be made, there are snakes in the grass, and what I would suggest is, first and foremost, get all the info. Get it from one, credible source. The more aspects of the trip a site or company offers, the better. The fly by nights and charlatans, in my experience, generally deal with one or two aspects of the procedure. This of course isn't always the case though. I would highly recommend any prospective candidates to have a look at:Teaching English in China. Be safe out there, regards, Jimmy.
