Thanks for the reply. As it currently stands… yes, I am a square peg. However, I am working towards rounding off the corners with a snug fit in the round hole as my final destination. I plan on teaching in Taipei but would consider any city in Taiwan if forced. Here is a quick summary of my situation and reasons for pursuing a teaching position in Taiwan:
Although I have a B.S. in Computer Information Systems I have always wanted to teach. I just happened to pursue an education in C.I.S. as a result of my training and experience in the military. Furthermore, I spent 18 months in Taipei recently on an I.T. contract and loved the country. It was during those 18 months that I learned about “teaching English” in Taiwan and the seed was planted in my mind. Currently I am working in the U.S; however, I am ready for a career change and have decided that I want to teach English… and return to Taiwan for the long haul. I am currently enrolled in a CELTA program as I am very serious about this career change. As it currently stands, I will be taking a downgrade in pay and status to move to Taiwan to teach, but life has taught me that happiness is worth more than wealth or title. I want to be happy and live the best life I can, helping others and helping myself.
I was just hoping that by posting my request for a sample resume on this site, I might be able to better prepare for my move.
