To all those living and working in taiwan, I am seeking your advice.
I recently was teaching in France, but do to bureaucratic nightmares, the relatively high cost of living and because I just ran out of money, I had to return home (Canada.)
In January - shortly after Chinese New Year - I will be coming to Taiwan for peak job hiring season. I have yet to pick my town, but I’m sure it will be one of the bigger ones.
I will be coming with very little money - probably about 1000$ - so obviously want to find work quickly.
Now, I’ve been adviced that coming with that amount of money is fine, and in january you won’t have any problem finding work anywhere.
Do you think it is better that I come with a job pre-arranged (the Hess route, etc…), or should I just come with a little money, gamble a bit, and expect to find a better job fast enough?
PS. Is Hess really that bad? I know there are plenty of threads on this, but i have yet to look at them…
