Going A Little Far (East) To Find Employment

One of the biggest fears of not hiring an employee can sometimes be that they’ll walk down the street into your competitors’ shop. Well, according to one article in The New York Times, they may be traveling quite a bit further: to China. The article says that more graduates are finding that with a tough job market in cities like New York and Los Angeles that they might have more success in Shanghai and Beijing. And knowing Chinese is not a prerequisite:


Even those with limited or no knowledge of Chinese are heeding the call. They are lured by China’s surging economy, the lower cost of living and a chance to bypass some of the dues-paying that is common to first jobs in the United States.


Other NYT recent goodies:

-The Boss has a plan for flip flops at work


-From the Real Estate section, interns find a will and a way to get by during a summer…and that sometimes includes crashing on a floor.


-Lastly, from Fair Game, word that the quick buck just got quicker
