Overseas Chinese and Working

Question: can you maintain your Overseas Chinese status and be employed in Taiwan?

I am male and nearing 30 and was born in TW but left at a young age. I currently have Overseas Chinese status and am in the US still, but would I be able to work fulltime in TW without having my Overseas Chinese label revoked? I ask because without my Overseas Chinese status I would be immediately at risk for conscription. I am actually open to the idea of serving in the military, but I'd still like to know. Thanks!

No, it's not OK to come back into the galley to stretch and bend over with your rear end in my face while I'm in my jump seat during my only break, trying to eat a meal.
