Thanks Icon. I have at hand a work experience history issued by the Spanish government, and translated into Chinese by a Taiwanese agency (yes, more than two years related experience). I hope that it is enough for them. And I think that the company has these requisites you have mentioned. Well, we will see.

Thanks Satellite TV. By the way, how did you know about the second work permit thing? I am just curious.

Hi guys, finally I have got the work permit from the school, so I am ready to apply for the resident visa. And now the other company told me that they also want to apply for a work permit this week. My Taiwanese friend phoned the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ask if it is possible, and IT IS, but you only can choose one company when applying for the resident visa, so should I wait to see if I got the work permit from the other company? Would be it too late? New health examination and second work permit application would delay the thing around one month? Anyone knows if there is a term to apply for the resident visa once you have got the work permit? Thanks.

Whats up folks? After going over pages and pages of threads, this is the one that most closely represents my situation. I landed in Taiwan in the beginning of October, in hindsight I see that this was a bad time to find a teaching job. I was sent away many many times over the next month or so (mainly, because teachers just signed annual contracts a couple months prior). During this time I was lucky enough to land a handful of substitute gigs (I know they're illegal, but needed to do something), hoping to make a good impression for any future opportunities. I kept getting told that the schools only hired in June/July for the new school years or for me to check back after CNY, before the start of the 2nd semester. Not wanting to go that long without work, I kept hitting the streets. Soon, I picked up a very part time gig at a small buxiban, only 4 hours a week... But, it was better than nothing. This job was under the table work for the rest of the semester.

I left back to SF for CNY and came back about 2 weeks later, again, hitting the streets running. Pretty much all the schools that told me to come back after CNY, either already found someone or were keeping their current teacher. Good thing, I guess, was that my last buxiban offered me to stay on board, which I accepted. So after months of not finding anything new, my GF's brother is doing me a solid & is "hiring" me on as a web designer/programmer for his company.

My FT work permit was approved and I applied for my ARC on Monday, which I'm supposed to pick up on the 30th. The reason we went this route was because I was offered work from a few companies, that said that they didn't sponsor the FT work permit, and that I would need to get one before they could proceed.

First, I realize that I'm going to have to pay taxes on the "wages" of my FT job. But, I'm hoping that I will be able to get enough PT work where, I know it'll still suck, but won't matter that much. So, my question is can I get part time work at these buxibans even though my FT work permit is based on being a programmer?

I'm sorry for rambling, I know I could have kept it real short, I do that... quite often :loco: Anyways, thanks to you guys in advance. -T

So I'm supposed to pick up my ARC on Monday! :) So, does anyone have any insight into this?

the meat of things: If I have my ARC/FT work permit for a programming job, can I get some PT jobs teaching English? And, if so, how many PT jobs/work permits can I have at one time? Thanks again folks.

Tis the season for hiring new teachers! So, wanted to know if anyone had any info that would help me in my situation? Or now that schools are hiring, maybe just switch jobs on my arc? One thing I'm paranoid about is being at the will of my ARC sponsor if I go that route... or maybe I'm just thinking too much into that?
