Avoiding the English Teacher route (Shanghai)


So my situation is quite straight forward, Having taken a year out from my University degree to study Chinese here after being awarded scholarships for both a summer course and 4 month course in Shandong. My problem is now that through a set of circumstances I'm now looking for work in Shanghai for the following year.

I am however trying to avoid the English teaching route, not that I see it as a particularly bad route but it isn't in line with what I wish to attain whilst in China. Could anyone suggest other possible avenues to explore or people I may contact? I'm quite open to any position as my work experience is in retail and customer service and my degree is in Physics. Ideally it would be in the creative sector, such as an architectural firm but this is possibly unachievable.

Best wishes,
