Recommendations for excellent Headhunters in China?

Post Posted: Wed Apr 19, 2006 9:51 pm

Hi,

are there any recommendations for trustworthy headhunters in China? I heard some can provide a service at USD300, and that includes marketing you to firms and helping to negotiate for good expat terms.

Please share some good websites as well. thanks

You can find a listing of some of the better Exec Search ? Headhunter companies on the China Expert International Ltd. website.

The listing can be found on this page:

I would like to add Ginkgo Search Partners, which is an international headhunter operating in China. In contrast to volume-based contingency headhunters, Ginkgo Search Partners is a retained executive search firm and focuses more on mid to senior level searches in China.

It is best to avoid head hunters and apply directly to the FAO (Foreign Affairs Officer) or HR offuce of the school or company you want to work. Not only will you earn more money but you will also avoid a lot of scams. I copied and pasted this from TEFL.net to share with youL

"I was lured to China to teach and a few years ago and I have to admit there were a lot of things that the recruiters NEVER told me and when I asked certain questions, they changed the subject. After reading the post about the 10 ten lies of ESL recruiters in China, I decided to post these three links to save you all the aggravation and money I went through before I found a safe and genuine employer in China where I was not in danger of being deported. If I had seen these links I would have saved 6 months of my life and earned at least 20,000 rmb more. One of my employers even tried to extort me for 5,000 rmb to get my "release letter" which is needed when you want to upgrade your job. Anyway, this below is knowledge meant to be shared to reduce the number of expat scam victims in China. Now that I have an honest employer and no longer use shady agents, I am content in China except for the air pollution which is horrible during the winter months.

China is a fun place to work if you can avoid the scams and split-shift work schedules."
