There are some opportunities outside teaching but the competition is great. You also much ask yourself i you want to deal with people at a company in Taiwan, it is very different than teaching. Each have there own BS and to tell you the truth I am not sure which one is worse. You will probably not make as much money in a non-teaching job, and your hours at the office will most likely be more than 40 a week, which you are not paid for.
1. Do you have any skills other then teaching?
2. What kind of job are you looking for?
I am not trying to discourage you from looking, but you should know the truth and consider what you really want. But that is not really what you are asking... There are jobs, but you have to search for them, and just taking any 'ol job that is not teaching may not be any better than teaching. Just something to think about.

Americans living in Taiwan CALL your senators and representatives and ask them to repeal FATCA and support residency based taxation (RBT) for Americans living abroad! Writing a letter is useless! FATCA to be implemented on July 1, 2014, if you want to move money around, do it now!The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
