How to find a job in Taiwan?

Postby chu801230 » 22 Jun 2016, 14:13

Hey Guys,


I am Taiwanese and I want to help my girlfriend who is a foreigner find a job here. She wants to work in sales/Marketing and she can speak Chinese/English/Hebrew/Arabic. She also has experienced in sales.
We post resume on 104/Linkedin and head hunter website but we still don't have anything yet...
I just wonder that how you guys find a job here? by what kinda way or how are we supposed to do it?

Please advise me. We are really eager to find something.
We will really appreciate your help.
Thank you very much.

Probably the best way is to get hired by an international firm and then transfer to Taiwan or apply directly to international firms in Taiwan.
Have you tried www.indeed.com or monster.com for job postings? Indeed.com does have a Taiwan site.

If your gf does actually speak those languages and has experience in sales, I don't think it should be too hard to find a job here (I'm not saying she'll find a good one, but at least one that'll get her a visa and pay the rent while she settles down). 104 is in my opinion the best place to look: don't just put her CV there and wait, but actively go through the posts every day and apply to every offer that fits more or less. She obviously has an edge for MEA sales positions, but that doesn't mean she can't apply for other jobs targeting other regions. There are literally hundreds of job posts on 104 under "International Sales", and that's just by doing a search in English. Don't sit there and wait - be proactive in your search!
If she is looking for a high-paying, high-benefit, career-building job, then that's another story... Taiwan might not be the right place for her.

Also: you didn't specify, but I assume she meets the requirements for getting hired in Taiwan (degree + 2 years experience), right? If not, maybe that's why you're not getting any calls, as companies wouldn't be able to hire her legally...
