If you're looking for a job in China, it's a good idea to prepare some typical questions you might get asked. It is slightly different in China because the self-introduction letter written by locals often contains a detailed history of not only themselves, work experience, and hobbies, but also their family and where they grew up. Today's lesson is a great template to follow and a good way to prepare for a job interview at a traditional firm. Photo by Flazingo Photos

I think my ability to coordinate makes me stand out. In 2006 I worked at the reception desk for the "Asia Pacific Affairs Forum" hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, using English to communicate with foreign attendees just before the forum. I also helped the hosts throughout with coordinating the event and when the forum came to a satisfactory end I was commended by senior officials.
