Jilin Huaqiao University of foreign Languages - Waste of Time
I am writting this post to let you know that applying for this University is a waste of your time. I find the HR department of the University very unproffesional and unwilling to help candidates and teachers.
I applyed for a teaching position at Jilin Huaqiao University several months ago. The recruiter of the HR department told me that after the interview, they would let me know something after 2 days. As she did not respond, I called her back. She ignored me. After a month she wrote me back asking me if I was still interested in the teaching position. I was and, this time, we reached an agreement. She formally invited me to join the University and sent me the contract. The same day that she sent me the contract asked me to sign it inmediatelly (not even a day to consider it). So I asked a couple of questions about the University and the teaching conditions there. She refused to answer again. During the next 5 days I tried to reach her by email and Skype (both our usual ways to talk) but she ignored me (I know this since she was connected on Skype all time). I don´t know why Joanna Zhao shows that kind of impolite and childish behaviour. My best guess: she found another teacher (even after sending the contract for me to sign). I find her very unprofessional and the Jilin Huaqiao University a joke of institution since still allows her to run the HR department.
