I’ve just been in Taipei a couple months, but I’ve found, especially during the past month, that teaching jobs in this city are hard to come by.
The language school who gave me my ARC only gives me ten hours a week and I’ve been looking for some more work so that I can at least survive. Everywhere I look either doesn’t call me back or they overlap the three nights I work at my current job.
One school that seemed to be hiring like crazy a few months ago told me it was because of the 9-11 attacks and that because foreigners are afraid to come to the United States, this has left many ESL teachers out of work. As a result, they have come here for work.
Are there any thoughts on this? The last time I was here, it seemed so easy to find an English teaching position, but now…yikes.
