Yeah! I got a job offer from IBM Shanghai for a senior educational writing position. “As someone with a clear passion for non-profit work, how do you feel about working for a big MNC?” How many times was I asked that question? Fortunately, I have a cool answer for it. If you’re curious, let me know and I’ll fill you in. 🙂
I am so thrilled. The pay is low by US standards but quite good for Shanghai. I talked with two people on the team, and the job sounds totally cool. I’ll basically be 1) writing e-learning pieces from scratch (after being given source data from the experts 2) edit existing documents 3) do project management. Is that a fine fit or what? Teaching continues to be rewarding, but honestly it is quite tiring and in some ways tedious. With this job, I feel I’ll be able to multi-task with a lot of different things. And this job is quite close to our place. I really can’t wait. I start full-time on October 11. Full time at an MNC office in Shanghai. Wonder what it’ll be like. Wish me luck!
