Cool jobs available at Shanghai World Expo 2010
Anyone keen to work in Shanghai next year at the World Expo? NZTE are looking for people at the moment. These are PAID positions, NOT internships. Key things to note: You have to speak Mandarin AND English well. Also have to have valid NZ work visa, permanent residency or citizenship. I just received this email so just thought we should share this opportunity with everyone. Those of you who did not heed our advice to learn Mandarin can still do so… we have a few spots available for tomorrow's intake or the 10-week Mandarin course starting 12 October. This is a brilliant opportunity and would suit those thinking of an unconventional OE. Spending 6 months in Shanghai during the World Expo would not just be great for your CV, but will also be a good business networking opportunity. Who knows? Maybe you'll meet a big shot who ends up offering you an expat package plus all the travel perks. That would be nice…
