How can I get employed

Postby Militarygamer » 30 Apr 2012, 02:42

Last time I've checked in order fo a foreigner to work in Taiwan as a white collar worker, he or she must receive a monthly salary of 48000 or above. This is very difficult to satisfy as the average salary in Taiwan is around 3-3.5000, no way for a graduate without much experience to be paid that much. So far I have not came any company that is willing to offer me such wage, so how can I meet the legal requirements and work in Taiwan?

Look into the "Teaching English in Taiwan" posts. Teaching should get you at least 50K/month if you can handle kids.

Look for positions opening for foreigners, especifically calling for foreigners. You should not occupy a position set for a local, for the reason you have already stated. You simply cannot settle for less, if you want to stay here long term, you have to stay legally.
