I wouldn't waste my time trying to contact any schools via email or telephone. The best thing is to just show up in Taiwan and hit the pavement with a nice appearance and a fist full of resumes. I wouldn't mention breaking the contract upfront with any schools. Get the job first, and break it later as long as you give proper notice per your contract. You can just tell them that your personal plans have changed when the time comes to break the contract. For Kojen, you don't need to apply at the main office. You can do that, but it might be better just to get a list of their branches and walk in and speak to the educational directors and try to get hired at the branch closest to where you want to live. If you apply at the head office, they will send you where they want to send you.kinch wrote:Kojen looks alright... it says I can break their 1-yr contract, which is a plus. Since I can't find an e-mail on their site, I assume I should be in Taipei first and then call them?
Same thing. Get here and then walk into the branch nearest your residence and apply.kinch wrote:I've also read a bit about Global Village... I can't even find their contact info! How would I go about applying there?
There's really no such thing as a "school year" in terms of the cram schools. They operate all year round.kinch wrote:Oh, and what is the deal with the school year in Taiwan? Does it vary school to school? ?
Not if you're looking at a cram school.kinch wrote:Would it matter, in terms of just getting a job, if I came now rather than in January
