Speaking

I have many friends unemployment for this month. Many friends told me if you have some chances should be recommend them, but I discussed with my HR, they are told me, for this year, the economic is not well, and the company maybe will lay off the employee. My new agency have the same problem. All the Chinese economic is bad.

Some friends, they will choose be a freelancer for their job, but freelancer is not stable so sometimes (3 days or one week), they maybe will change a company. After they will get their salary for a long time. My company has many foreigners, the salary will be paid us in advance. But in local agencies, they will pay them for next month. For freelancer, their salary maybe will for a long time. It’s a bad news. Sometimes maybe I will change the job and I will be boss, enjoy my job. If I choice agency, I will just choice 4A agency.
