The SmSh Recruiting Assistant

For small-to-mid-sized companies entering or expanding in the Shanghai and China marketplace, finding the right local employment to flesh out a working team on the ground is a challenging process. Our own SmSh jobs board, presented in English only, is mainly geared towards international talent already, or soon-to-be, residing in Shanghai.

There are, of course, loads of Chinese-language jobs boards, but for smaller companies not already versed in the Chinese jobs market, translating your message and finding the right applicants is a difficult undertaking and often yields disappointing results. The other option, headhunter firms, are usually priced out of range for start-ups. In this situation, the SmSh Recruiting Assistant is here to help.

Read on for how we can help you solve your staffing problems in Shanghai and in Greater China.

  • Translation of Your Job Listing into Chinese and / or English

    Efficient communication is key. Our team of fluently bilingual editors can translate your job posting and requirements into Chinese (or from Chinese into English). Please note: Extra changes may apply for job descriptions over 1000 words.

  • Posting Your Job Listing on the SmartShanghai,com’s Jobs Board and Newsletter

    Even though our jobs board is in English only, we have strong penetration in expat and Chinese white collar worker jobs markets. In addition to posting your listing with priority on our platform, we will also include it in our newsletter which reaches 40,000 subscribers weekly.

  • Posting Your Jobs Listing on China’s Largest Jobs Platform, 51Jobs.com

    In addition to translating your listing, the SmSh Recruiting Assistant will also navigate China’s largest jobs platform, 51Jobs.com to post your listing, reaching the widest berth of applicants. Our service fee also includes the service fee of posting therein.

  • One Additional Posting on a Relevant Industry-Specific Jobs Board

    In addition to the general postings stated above, the SmSh Recruiting Assistant will also consult and place your application on the relevant Chinese-language industry-specific jobs board to solicit skilled workers to your listing.

  • Receiving and Filtering Applications, Forwarding the Best to You — In English

    Typically, when companies of any size post on local sites, they receive hundred and sometimes thousands of applicants. Many applicants, however, are sorely under-qualified and, at times, even fail to match the basic criteria entirely. Our team at the SmSh Recruiting Assistant will sort through the applications bulk and send a filtered list to you of applicants that meet the top three criteria (of your choice) for your perusal.

  • Helping You Connect with Potential Candidates

    Finally, when you have selected the five best candidates from your filtered list. The SmSh Recruiting Assistant can help you communicate and schedule meetings with them. Please Note: In addition to the five, you will also receive the full filtered list to work with as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many job listings are included in this package?

    One. This package is for one single job position. If you have two job openings for two different positions, you need to buy two packages.

  • Do I get a discount for buying more than one package?

    No, sorry. This is a fixed price and there are no discounts.

  • I would like to talk to a SmartShanghai representative about this service.

    Yes, absolutely, please get in touch via our form here and we will get back to you within 2 working days.

  • What is the success rate?

    Especially with job listings on local Chinese sites, chances are high that you'll get a lot of irrelevant applications. It depends a lot on the type of job and how attractive your company is to a job seeker if you'll get good applications. We can’t guarantee what comes in, we can just get your own message out there most efficiently, and then locate the best applicants to said message.

  • Are there any other fees?

    No. This fee includes all the job listings fees for the job listings on SmartShanghai.com, 51Job.com, and other sites. There are no additional fees.

  • Based on what criteria will you filter applications?

    We will consult with you to receive three main qualification criteria — the three things in a potential hire that are the most important to you — and we'll make sure that every application that we forward to you actually meets these three criteria.

  • What differentiates the Recruiting Assistant service from a traditional headhunting/HR company?

    Using our editorial team and in-depth experience of job listings in various industries, we help you design your listing as well as translate it into Chinese, and help you post it to multiple relevant sites. We then filter all applications and help you weed out the best potential hires which we then pass on to you. That's it. Oriented towards small to medium-size companies, the SmSh Recruiting Assistant is in the important (and more affordable) space between a simple job listing that won’t yield the right results and a full service HR company that costs too much.
