Oh cool, which university? I recently got a university job as well. It actually was advertised on a public site though. I think I got lucky and had enough qualifications to get me through to the interview, which I took very seriously.
I don't like to discuss private information like place of employment publicly, but I'll PM you the university.
Yeah when I arrived 14 years ago I did not need a bachelor's degree. I had a two year diploma and TESOL certificate and worked legally for seven years until finally finishing my degree.
Oh wow, interesting to know! I did not know that was how it went in the past. I'm newer to Taiwan.
Afaik it's still that way. (This only applies to buxibans, btw.)
At least Buxibans are a good place to start if you're in Taiwan. You can keep moving up if you find a good one.
