Sick of searching jobs in Taiwan

Postby Jimmy_L » 22 Jul 2016, 15:17

First of all, i love Taiwan, Taiwan has a really good culture among all Chinese country, eh, I mean the peoples, friendly, kind, and helpful.

I am a Malaysian who worked in Singapore for 11 years in engineering field, i did submit quite a lot of resume and I went for several interviews.

Most of the companies giving me an info that they faced difficulties when apply my work permit then they gave up and decided not to hire me == thats hurt XD

There's 2 main reasons that makes my working path hard:
1, foreigners who apply for technical and professional type of works in Taiwan are limited their salaries at least 47.9k Taiwan dollars ( this problem is easy, i can just find job at north side eg Taipei and eventually i solved this problem )
2, work permit duration, i did received a call from one of the company which dicided to hire me as their customer service engineer, sayings that they called to the council of labour to ask for work permit matter but they cant get an exact duration of the work permit and so, they decided not to hire me =(

Guys, any suggestions to a newbie here? ^_^ do i really need to go for a English test and apply a teacher job first then find my ideal job? ==

Work permits for language teachers are not merit-based, i.e. there's no test you can take. You need a passport from a country classified by MOFA as speaking the language you intend to teach.

For work permit issues in general... can you see yourself happily married to a Taiwanese? Because that's what they've decided the easiest path should be. :s

I wasn't trying to recommend marriage, just pointing out that the option is there.

I don't have time now, but if you search for threads about work permits and passports you can find the past discussions about nationalities being recognized or not. Someone provided the exact name of the list of countries/languages recognized by MOFA. It should be the same as what they publish on their website in the information section on foreign countries (only available in the Chinese version), but for some countries the languages listed are different depending on whether you use the mobile version or the desktop version.

Hope you find a decent partner that will explain the massive real estate bubble we have in Taiwan. Unless you wnat to capitalize when the blood floods the streets...
Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
