I’m Uri from Israel, nice to meet you all! I’ve already been in Taiwan for 7 months studying Chinese at NCKU in Tainan (not on scholarship), and the time had come to start looking for a job…
A bit of background about myself - I’m 32, hold a Law degree and 2 years of work experience (commercial litigation and projects and infrastructure), can speak Hebrew, native level English (most of my work was conducted in English) and intermediate level Chinese.
I’ve seen plenty of English-teaching positions, but they all require native speakers (meaning, being the citizen of one of 8 specific countries). Is this a legal thing, or just a preference by employers?
If English teaching is closed for me - where are good places to look for corporate jobs in Taiwan? Linkedin? 104?
Realistically - do I really have to go to Taipei to improve my chances of getting a job? Of course anyone can work everywhere, but how international are the next biggest cities (Kaohsiung and Taichung)? My Mandarin is still far from working proficiency level.
Thnx a lot
