  1. I am 26, a Cambridge University graduate with 4 degrees (BA, MA, MSc, PhD) in Neuroscience. I have work experience in web programming (self-employed) and stockbroking (top tier firm in London). I am a British citizen, currently in Shanghai seeking work. Can anyone help? I would consider positions in venture capital, fund management, investment banking, management consultancy or high-tech industry (bioscience, software, ecommerce etc.). I don’t think I would be the strongest match for the jobs listed here – but would definitely be interested in working at ebay China! I can be contacted at rhodopsin AT hotmail.com – or my local chinese cell number – 13681914901

  2. michael, why are YOU wasting time here? you got a ph.d and trying to get a job as a programmer. and obviously, you are not good at programming at all.

  3. I’m not bad at programming actually – much of my research was theoretical with a lot of high-fly programming involved.

  4. Gong xi, gong xi!

  6. Micheal-

    Why in the world didn’t you use your personal contacts to seek employment prior to making a trip to Shanhai? You might be intelligent, buy you are not very smart.

  7. Since I am in Hong Kong, I do feel the international flavor of the city – much stronger than Shanghai. People from all around Asia and the world come the city to work and to live. Shanghai is not that open yet, since the jobs requires international background are not as many as other international cities yet. So lower the expectation. There are always exceptions, but don’t expect it as common to take a high pay job if you directly fly to Shanghai to seek one.
