How can we find skilled help in Shanghai?


The quickest and easiest method is to post something online. Many of the websites catering to expats in Shanghai have job sections, including this site. Also look at Shanghai-ed, City Weekend and 8 Days.

Shanghai always plays host to several mixers, making it easy to meet people and network. Finding the right person for the job may simply be a matter of attending the right event.

And of course, there are also Shanghai Expat's Wednesday night mixers and Sunday morning coffee meetings. More info is on the Front Page.
