Why do you need a Chinese resume and cover letter?

  • 1 A Chinese resume(中文简历) and cover letter(求职信) shows that your Mandarin is business proficient(中文业务能力). It gives future employers a writing sample and showcases your skills, experience, and personality in their native language.
  • 2 A Chinese resume is a reflection of your attitude. It shows that you are serious(认真) about working in China and studying and speaking Chinese.
  • 3 A Chinese resume gives you a competitive advantage(竞争优势). Nowadays, everyone is looking for a way to stand out in the job market and you can stand out among other applicants with a Chinese resume. More and more foreigners are learning and speaking Chinese and you need to distinguish(区别) yourself from the rest.
  • 4 A Chinese resume opens doors. It allows you to apply for jobs that may not be available to someone who does not speak Chinese. Many jobs at Chinese companies will require a Chinese resume.
  • 5 China is a place where you don’t want to lose face(丢脸). Possessing a Chinese resume gives you face and credibility.
