Hello,

Thanks for all the responses here.
Appreciate them.

So generally speaking, judging from what has been shared, I should be looking at ard 5K USD/month for basic?
And the package should also come with housing, transport allowances etc right?

Would be great if any folks here reading this and are in the media industry could help shed some light on this as well.

Thanks much.

Still...jealous, envious...and only 35?


USD 150k a year isn't that much. It's pretty much the average that a graduate from my university in Switzerland earns at the age 25. So why should they be willing to go to China and accept a lower salary, especially if you consider the fact that living quality for many westerns is lower in China because it's dirtier, unsafer and so on. (Well, for me, living quality is higher in China because I can get good food, have household  staff, afford a bigger appartment and experience a nice culture, but of course I wouldn't tell my employer when negotiating the salary :) )

Yes, only 35. In our company we believe that young people can bring in fresh ideas and with the co ...

Off topic, sorry OP but Longzhou my friend, does a 35 year old expat have more responsibility than say, an English teacher, responsible for the minds of many hundreds, sometimes thousands of kids/young adults? Which is the future, on the whole, of China? Foreign teachers are getting a "bum rap" methinks!

If you are a mainland China's citizen, Maybe RMB 6,000~8,000 (USD 1,000 ) per month for experienced copyeditor for CCTV.
