I am currently in Cambodia but I want to relocate to Taiwan at the end of this week. I just earned my CELTA, have no teaching experience, and have a doctorate in law (I’m not sure if employers would give a crap about the doctorate). I am a white American 26-year-old male without an FBI background check on hand (but I know I can pass one). With those facts in mind, do you think I would struggle to find a job if I show up and start looking on Monday the 11th? My main concerns are:
- I have no background check and FBI checks can take a while to get
- I think it is past peak hiring season.
I am flexible as to location and I was planning to start my search in Taipei. However, I could fly to Kaohsiung instead if there are more opporunities in the south. And to be clear, I am willing to get the FBI background check but I am worried employers will not be willing to wait around because it may take a few weeks.
