Due to my family’s relocation plan, I am now looking for a job in the United States. I figure while I will be sending out application packages every day, it does not hurt if I advertise myself here, since we already have thousands of followers.

If you have been a Ministry of Tofu reader for a while, you must have noticed my great understanding of issues related to China and East Asia, demonstrated ability to write on such topics, keen observance of and familiarity with social media and ability to meet deadlines, with which I am able to maintain this blog for almost three years.
But what you probably haven’t seen is: I know well how to cover and write a news story, edit video using Final Cut Pro, reach key audiences on the web, do field-based work and communications, do independent and collaborative research (as I have done so with for a number of organizations in the past) and translate and interprete (again, rich experience in that regard). Besides, I am very agreeable to work with and good at learning from co-workers in a short period. You will find out about that as soon as you meet me in person.
So if you, or your friends and acquaitances are looking for a reporter, a researcher, a translator, an interpreter, a consultant, a news editor or any person that understands China and Chinese society well and can help you as a bridge between the two countries/markets, I am definitely the right person.
Please feel free to drop me a private message at, or on Twitter/Facebook. Your help is greatly appreciated, and I am confident if we work together in the future, it will be a win-win situation!

    Hi Jing,
    I’ve just discovered your web today! you are brilliant!! Very good command of language and very dedicated to your work! I was wondering whether you run your website full-time or part-time. I also run non-for-profit organization called ARTouch ( in London, but I could only do it part-time, and feel very hard to make as much commitment as you have done. But your work really encouraged me! All the best with your job hunting!!! you are just great!

    Loved your work so far and wish you well in your next move. You’ll be brilliant, I’m sure.

    While my US contacts are a bit thin my UK list is better. Perhaps they may have some ideas. I have spammed them all on your behalf. After all, would London be so bad..?

    All the best.

      London is not bad at all! But I am more worried about UK’s immigration law and visa policy though. But if these are not a problem, then why not UK? :D
