WARNING LONG, DRAWN OUT POST ALERT!
First time poster here. Let me give a rundown of my situation and then ask the question–I am a Graphic Designer by trade and absolutely love what I do. Currently I am employed as an Art Director for a non-profit in the city (Portland, ME) My wife, whom I met in college for graphic design, is Taiwanese. Long and short of it is this…we are contemplating a relativly short term stay (1 year, perhaps 2) there and I would like to know about the job market. Having taught English there over the course of 4 summers during college, I know that is certainly an option if money was the only concern. (I’m a white American, seems to help) Buuuuuuut…I LOVE Graphic Design and have had a good run so far here in US. The question – Would it be a possiblity for me to find employ as a graphic designer in Taiwan even though I cannot read Chinese? (I can only speak a wee bit o’ Mandrin as well)
Thank you for taking the time to read this far,
