    Default Chinese OWD...

    And sino-chief was claiming, that it is not true

    All models wich he was showing, had some euro-like remenblences.
    I.e. those who in some part resemble white people, are more successfull in model jobs.
    Btw, this is not a secret, it is largely known. I probably whatched even a programme about it years ago.

    In America, Caucasian people benefit from a form of privilege that gives them access to jobs, opportunities, and networks that are often off limits to minorities. Well, in provincial China, there’s an entirely different type of white privilege happening. White folks can get jobs where they’re paid to stand around and be white – no professional experience required. Throughout China there are firms that rent out foreign-looking people to attend events and the most expensive people are Caucasian.

    Real estate entrepreneurs in China’s rural periphery have the biggest need for rent-a-whites where they’re used to occupy massive apartment complexes with vacancy issues. “[Real estate companies] believe that filling their remote buildings with foreign faces, even for a day, suggests that the area is ‘international,’ a buzzword in provincial areas that often translates to ‘buy,’ ” says David Borstein at The New York Times. The real estate companies will often ask the the rented foreigners to act like famous musicians and models to increase the building’s cache with locals.

    Mitch Moxley, a freelance writer who lives in Beijing, was paid $1,000 a month to be a fake businessman just because he’s white. “It was pretty funny. The whole thing was a little bit surreal,” he told NPR. “We were down there and were being paraded around a half-built factory and we had to sit in temporary offices the rest of the day, not really doing anything. We were sleeping at our desks or reading magazines.”

    Companies with foreign-looking workers are seen as more successful in China. “Face, we say in China, is more important than life itself,” Zhang Haihua, author ofThink Like Chinese, told CNN. “Because Western countries are so developed, people think they are more well off, so people think that if a company can hire foreigners, it must have a lot of money and have very important connections overseas. So when they really want to impress someone, they may roll out a foreigner.”

    Not only are there “face” or “white monkey” jobs for those looking to impersonate businessmen, but some white folks can get paid to hang out at parties, model, act, and can even pretend to be emissaries of President Obama. Looking to get paid for being white? According to Echinacities, here’s how to identify “white monkey” job postings in China:

    — Look for poorly-worded job ads in English
    — Look for jobs that focus on looks instead of professional experience
    — If a job ad says “Caucasian only” it’s probably a face job
    — If a job has a height or weight requirement its a face job
    — Avoid assistant jobs at Chinese companies or ESL jobs (for those you’ll actually have to work)

    White people spending enough time in China don't even notice being surrounded by Asians anymore. OWD is the most overrated term. I'll stand by that position.

    Indians probably get paid to stay away from the Chinese, not be in the pictures, crowds etc. Imagine what their third word aura would do to the image of the chinese

    Think it that way Rethel: would you prefer to see your country to be swarmed by Euro tourists or African tourists in burqas.

    China is isolated geographically from the west so whites weren't a common sight there until recently.

    Whites usually wouldn't go to work in such a far away place even if the pay was good (because of the distance and geography)

    Whites among chinese crowds would imply that China is more cosmopolitan and more first world country.

    Yeah I doubt whites are paid anymore to pose. Maybe in the most backward places of China

    This is like the "Diversity Quota" in major Western companies, except that it's applied to China. Lol.

    Yeah, this issue is pretty overblown and sensationalized. Yeah, it does happen that some Chinese companies (typically a no name, shady one) would use fake White employees to boost their image (to appear more cosmopolitan, international), though it's not common and this is seen as pretty cynical and the practice is actually dying out because people are on to that game now.

    It's actually a demeaning business if you really think about it, just some shady and unsophisticated businessman and some clueless broke expat trying to get a gig.
