I’m sure that this has been asked and answered before. I may have even asked it before. But, there are so many threads about visa issues, and I’m just very lazy. So, if someone just wants to direct me to the appropriate thread, I’d appreciate it.
I am currently working for a company doing editing, writing, marketing, etc… I have finished 6 months of a 12 month contract. However, I have a problem that makes me want to quit. I hate my job. Well, that is not exactly accurate. I don’t like my job and I hate my boss. He’s a jerk… an idiot… a fool… a man who thinks he’s “all that and a bag of chips.” However, he’s more like the crumbs that are left on the floor after you’ve eaten all the chips.
Anyway… I would like to quit. However, I’m here in Taiwan mainly because my boyfriend moved back here and we wanted to stay together. So, I can’t just up and quit, if it means not being able to get another job or losing my visa. That would defeat the purpose of me moving here in the first place.
If need be, I’ll grit my teeth and bare it till my contract is up and I can look for something different. But, what would happen if I quit? Are there any options. I vaguely remember someone telling me that, if I tell my employer I have to leave the country for personal reasons, go back to the States for a month or so, and then return, I would be “ok.” Is that true?
Any help is appreciated.
