I’m a recent graduate looking for a teaching job in Taipei. I don’t have experience, but I’m not a slacker and I have an earnest desire to teach.
In my research of potential employers, I’ve concluded I have two main options:
- Work for a year with one of the big guys: HESS, Kojen/ELSI, Joy, etc.
- Pick a smaller school, that may or may not be able to get me a legit ARC.
I really want to work legally, but I’m turned off by the mixed reviews of the big cram schools. Are there really smaller schools out there, that provide a supportive, structured working environment?
What I’ve read (for the most part) on forums such as this one, is scathing critiques of a number of schools. Can anyone fully endorse a smaller school or chain to work for?
If not, what would you do if you were in my shoes?
