Re: Does this 雇佣 mean Employment

Note that "工作" (job), occupation (职业) and utilizing (利用... employment of resources in Taiwan usage more so it seems) and sometimes industry "工业" (employment in an industrial sense only) are also used to mean employment.

PS: if you are seriously investing in this area for development... then feel free to PM me and I will check if my understanding on the most common term is 100% correct or not.
Thanks AsiaPlay

So there is more ways of saying the same thing. Basically as you mentioned you need to capture what is commonly used.

Well , I would'nt mine starting up a monster.com in a Chinese version with

雇佣.CN

So yes I am open to development. The market would be bigger than monster.com you cannot argue with that.
