I've heard that it is even tougher with unis in Taipei who are now looking for people with PhDs. They'll probably need a video of you teaching adults plus proven teaching experience. CELTA etc is irrelevant, but may help your application.
Everyone is on holiday now, but you should be able to apply in September for the Spring term (starts after Chinese New Year).
Oh wow, even for being a TA? That's much tougher than I'd imagined! This is good to know before I arrive, so that I didn't land with false expectations.

Oh, no need to apologize! My original post, in retrospect, was unclear.
I'm looking more for a part-time instruction position or working as a 'practice your English conversation' tutor within the University system. Say, something that's more along the lines of a '20 teaching hours per week' job than a traditional College/Uni tenure position. I was thinking that maybe there was a market for those basic 'English 101' classes, or something like a university running a business English course, and working as a contracted employee.
