I’m moving to Taipei in late December, and have already booked an AirBnb in the Zhongzheng district for 2 weeks with my primary intention being that I find a job teaching job. Financially I’m not too worried if it takes longer than 2 weeks, yet it seems that finding a job should be the top priority so that I could apply for an ARC and provide proof of work when renting out a room/apartment.
With that being said, how can I preplan some sort of agenda to apply to respectable schools in person? I saw there’s a list of schools NOT to go to, but haven’t seen a list of schools that have been “approved” per say. Is it suggested that I reach out to buxibans before traveling to the school and asking for a hiring manager? I’ve been checking TeaLit frequently to get a sense of listings, but that’s truly been my only source of specific job opportunities other than the large chain organizations-which I intend to stay away from unless I’m desperate. Any guidance would be much appreciated; I’m not the aimless type of person when it comes to big moves like this, and would love to here your recommended plan of attack with the experience y’all have.
