Are you interested in working in China? If so, you may want to consider a “little” place called Shenzhen, just over the border from Hong Kong. While these days it may be getting harder for foreigners to find jobs in China overall, I personally feel there are still many opportunities for those willing to put in the time and try their hand (and heart) at a new adventure. Shenzhen, as the tech capital of China, is one such place where I believe opportunities can still be had.

And after working in Shenzhen for the past five years, primarily for and with Chinese organizations, I feel I’m pretty up to speed on not just what’s needed to get a job in China, but to succeed and prosper in Shenzhen, China’s tech capital. Take a look at the below video to find out the following, among other useful tips:

  1. Do you need to know Chinese to work in Shenzhen?
  2. What type of talent are Chinese companies looking for?
  3. What do you need to do to get a job in Shenzhen?
  4. What is Shenzhen like as a place to live and work?

If you have any additional questions about living or working in Shenzhen, be sure to let me know!
