Taiwan is a suicide for the career. Not the worst choice for camping out the coronavirus.
After all this mess ends I want to leave this place ASAP. I do not understand how foreigners here can be happy working for 60-100k TWD. It is peanuts when compared to other countries. Part of the reason must be that they are stuck with gf/wife/kids and been drinking the kool-aid? I don’t want to sound offensive but for somebody in their twenties or thirties it’s not the perfect place. I’d say it’s great for student life and retirement only. The economy is… bleak. The mainland China corps are even outsourcing to Taiwan, given the low wages… ha.
Anyways, back to the topic: how hard it is to move to Japan for somebody who is 30 y.o., speaks and writes Chinese and has sourcing/manufacturing work experience? Any ideas how to make the first steps? Going to uni for yet another masters or signing up for language schools there?
The Japan-focused recruiters seem to only hire Japanese speakers. After researching LinkedIn I can see that most jobs that foreigners do are either in IT or are becoming recruiters… On the surface it seems that if I spoke Japanese then I could get the jobs I want - but I don’t believe it’s that straightforward.
Anybody has some insights?
