Question for any & all G+ folk: have any of you done the 'Expat in China' thing? I was contacted by a Microsoft recruiter about a job in Beijing, and while I didn't get that one, I'm now very into the idea - any tips or suggestions for other places to look for jobs that will relocate us (and, hopefully, provide some language lessons)? I've applied to a few Google & HP jobs, but would certainly be open to other ideas (in addition to straight IT, I've done a lot of STM publishing). All suggestions are welcomed & appreciated!
