I'm shocked, SHOCKED! I tell you. :whistle:

Sit down you!

I imagine they were shocked that so many foreigners HAD MAs or Law Degrees! :lol:

OK folks, I got this message from the President:
Hi, JD:

Thanks for your assistance. I have been receiving so many (maybe too many) responses. We will make formal invitation for the recruiting on the website after June (I think) when we have gone through the necessary bureaucratic processes in the university. I'll have the Office of International Affairs and Language Center to handle this at that time. Thanks again.


Good luck ya'll! :thumbsup:

I know that this post is several months old at this point, but I was wondering if you thought it might be worth it to contact this university? I'm arriving in Taiwan in mid/late July, and I was really hoping to see what my chances were to find a University/College job.

Dear JD:

Thanks for your e-mail. As NTPU is striving for the advancement of internationalization, we are trying to get more English native speakers (with at least master's degree) to teach either English or professional fields, preferably business, laws, or liberal arts. I would appreciate if you can introduce your acquaintances living near NTPU's campus. Thanks.

I think it may be a guanxi thing. The president knows and respects JD personally and asked to JD to personally introduce people he is acquainted with. Then the pres gets all these emails from strangers far and wide and that can be kind of scary.

It's not what you know, it's who you know, and it's better the devil you know and all that.

I am very interested in this discussion. I am currently a junior in college in the united states and I am considering a job in Taiwan. Currently I am studying abroad in taiwan at Shih Hsin University and I will be coming back next semester as well to continue a search for a job. My question is about this master degree. Are you saying that if I get a master degree I will be able to find a job at a university. That is a job that I really want which is better than teach little kids, I prefer grownup-ish individuals. So please enlighten me more.


Thanks,


Liu, Taiyang

Hello!

I realize I'm walking into this conversation a bit late, but I am a licensed attorney in the US and I would be interested in teaching at the law school.

How do I PM you??

Thanks!

I am thinking about working in China or Taiwan eventually and this post caught my eye...I am a licensed attorney here in the states but probably winding up my firm and moving abroad in the next year or so.

By lawyers do you mean someone who is actually and currently licensed to practice? Or just someone with a JD? Do you have any idea how an inactive bar membership would be viewed?

Would the lawyers actually be teaching law-related subjects or just English?
