Hi all, I’m flying into Taiwan next month and am hoping to find my first English teaching job. I have virtually no teaching experience, nor a TEFL, just a Bachelor’s degree and US citizenship.
With my limited credentials, I am wondering which city/village/etc has the best job prospects for aspiring teachers. On tealit.com I’ve noticed that the vast majority of jobs seem to be in Taipei, but I’ve heard that’s also where the vast majority of foreigners looking for work are, and I am wondering if the open-job/job-seeker ratio could be more advantageous elsewhere, or if certain areas have more opportunities for private tutoring or other kinds of work for foreigners (e.x. a place unpopular with foreigners, where there’s a demand for English teaching that isn’t being met). I don’t care if the area is boring or ugly, I just want to get as many paid working hours as I can.
Thanks in advance!
