I didn’t provide specifics because essentially I’m hoping to hear other’s experience and how they’ve dealt with the problem. I’m Canadian, have no more qualifications than the average English teacher besides perhaps that I am fluent in French as well as English, and have decent Chinese (all-Chinese workplace would not present a problem). I have a run of the mill B.A., have little in the way of impressive work experience… etc. I’m looking at proofreading/PR/sales type work, although my main interest is in working at ANY company where I’m able to do the work, speak Chinese, and keep living in Taiwan.
Basically, even though they’re interested in hiring me, the companies I’ve talked to seem to think they will just get the ‘a local could do this’ type rejection letter from the labour bureau.
So, any thoughts would be very welcome. Something tells me it’s a long shot that people are going to come out with whatever dubious stories they have haha but I’ll get no answers at all if I don’t ask
