Just to weigh in briefly…it’s a fair question, and I haven’t read all the replies above, but I’ve seen some good advice/info on this thread.
Getting a university teaching job is the holy grail of English teaching in Taiwan. It’s virtually impossible to get such a job these days for a lot of reasons, the main one being it’s so competitive. The MOE will not recognise an MA earned long distance, and you must pass MOE vetting. Actually finding a position is like looking for a needle in a haystack, and the red tape is almost unbelievable. You make your luck of course, and you might just get lucky. Once you’ve got your first job it’s presumably easier to get another one…But how satisfying are those jobs really? I guess I’ll never know. Most recently, I approached a couple of universities in my neighbourhood. Trying to pin down the director responsible for hiring was impossible, and they never got back to me. That’s pretty typical. Once I went to an interview at a university on the recommendation of an insider. All they wanted to know was how well I knew the insider, and having established this blew me off. I get the impression all appointments are highly politicised. You’re joining a faction, and you must make the right impression (whatever that is) Anyway, good luck with it, and to anyone trying to get a uni job here.
