Thanks, headhoncholl.

If anyone knows any work I could do from a town in central Taiwan, please let me know. It's really nice to be near the mountain and SunMoon Lake though there's no much work around. Worse comes to worse, I could try become a Bin Lan girl...Though, I am probably too old and too not pretty for that either. :cry:

Join the club, not much money to be found in Central and Southern Taiwan, unless selling overpriced souvenirs to Chinese tourists counts.

Just curious, what could I do in Northern Taiwan? My BA and MA are both in Humanity. I have been doing okay with my language combination, Mandarin, English and Japanese.

I've got a day job and am happy with it. Just hope I don't get fired anytime soon. The part-time job is just for the entertainment purpose. To see, again, the crazy people you have to work for and with.

Edit: Sorry, didn't mean to be obnoxious, a second pay check will be much welcomed too.

Editing this post to advise people not to work at Gjun. The hours are very antisocial (weekdays: late night or early morning; expect weekends if you take a full time position). There is a 30 minute wait between classes which you're not paid for and it really eats into your salary per hour. They try and lowball you at $550 an hour which you shouldn't accept of course.

They also screwed up my salary calculation every single month I worked there (of course, it was always too low and not too high). There is very poor communication between departments (makes it very slow to resolve problems). As for their accountants... let's just say I'd rather having Bernie Madoff doing my accounts.

I can vouch that TutorABC is a rip off and there are far better jobs out there both online and off. I worked for TutorABC for 2 years and they only get progressively worse.

Who could say, "No!" to a sales droning job at a pittance of regular instructor hours? Has anyone ever accepted this position?


Yes and regretted it the whole time. Much better jobs out there.

Anyone have experience or advice about hitutor? It's another online English teaching company. Seems similar to tutorabc, which from reading doesn't seem to be a good thing.
