Been at my current job for 8 months. I keep thinking it’ll improve, but it keeps getting worse and worse. I’m a hard worker and want to fufill my contract, but I am so fed up.
I came here wanting to work legally, got a job at a Kindy and didn’t find out until the ARC process was already well underway (6 weeks later!) that they could not legally hire me and were getting my ARC issued through a Bushiban I’ve never set foot in. Now I feel trapped and out of options.
My contract is up in August. Question – if I quit, do I have any chance of finding another job and getting another ARC? I have teaching experience back home, a BA, and CELTA. Or will the govmt deport me and blackball any future ARC applications? What happens if I stop doing all the crap they ask me to do and get fired? Do I have to leave Taiwan?
I want to be here fopr another two or three years, until I can speak CHinese. I know I can get a new and better job in September, but I’m not sure if I can wait much longer.
Help? Advice? Been there, done that?
