No — CH operates and maintains the Jobs Board, but does not act as a liaison between employers and job seekers.
It is up to the employer to produce a sufficiently detailed job description to attract potential applicants, as well as to field applications and interview requests.
No — job listing packages on CH never expire, so you may choose to use your remaining job listings whenever you choose, be it 2 months or 2 years later.
It’s difficult to pinpoint the exact reasons behind a lower than expected response rate, but here are a few factors to consider in these situations:
- Is it a holiday period or “low season” for job seekers? Job seekers often put applications on hold during extended breaks — e.g., Mainland China’s week-long National Day holiday — as well as the months leading up to the Lunar New Year.
- Is your job description detailed and realistic? A job description that doesn’t adequately convey your agency identity, position requirements and roles may not sufficiently attract the right talent. At the same time, it’s best to keep requirements realistic — e.g., no “French + Chinese + English native speaking architect/web developer/writer”.
Yes, in most cases. Please get in touch through our Contact Us page to retrieve your past job description.
Job listings have a running time of 4 weeks each. It's easy to extend your job listing beyond this time, too — just click "Refresh/Boost" on the listing (found under "Your Job Postings" in your user account area).
This option will give your listing an additional 1 week on the site, as well as bring it back to the top of the CH Jobs list. The Refresh/Boost function costs 70 CH Credits, or 112rmb, for each use.
Please help us keep the CH Jobs board clean, clear, concise and up to professional standards by ensuring that only one position is advertised within one listing.
Any submissions with more than one position included in the job description will not be published until the editorial team has edited the content so that only one position is advertised.
Within each category — Branding, Product Design, Photography, etc. — companies show up in three groupings: Gold companies on the very top, Premium companies in the second tier, followed by Regular.
Then within each grouping, our system lists agencies by alphabetical order, i.e., from “Advertising Creative” to “Zebra Design”.
Your company listing will be published in the CH directory within the same day, or the next business day, after your payment is processed.

We can issue: a) personal fapiao, b) standard fapiao titled with your company’s name, or c) VAT business fapiao. For VAT fapiao, our finance team will need these complete details:
1) your registered company name
2) company registration number
3) name & number of company bank account
4) company address & phone number
If you choose the "Cash on Delivery" option, then your fapiao will arrive at the same time that our company courier arrives at your office to collect payment.
If you choose the "Bank Transfer" option, our company couriers will deliver your fapiao directly to your office address within 3-5 business days of our finance team confirming receipt of payment.
Those who choose the "Office Payment" option will receive their fapiao of choice on the spot.
Note: some offices may be outside of our delivery zone. In these cases, our staff will send your fapiao via SF Express.
It may take up to an hour between the time that you complete your order, to when our online payment provider (Paymentwall) processes and then confirms receipt of funds with our banking institution.
If you still haven't received your CH Credits after an hour, then please get in touch with our team at email@example.com with your company name and job listing title (e.g., "Art Director") and we'll help you track down the payment.
