As a foreigner applying for jobs in Taiwan, I assume that I should follow the standard Western model (that’s how I landed my last job in Taiwan after all)? But are there any important aspects of Taiwanese CVs that I should consider using when tailoring my CV? For example, here in the UK, you should never include your photo or nationality on your CV, but I’ve heard that these are important to include in Taiwan. How about age?
I’ve also heard that Taiwanese CVs require a lot of crazy information, such as details about your family background. In a post I read on here, I even saw people mention blood type and zodiac signs, but I don’t actually know if they were joking or not because it’s actually somewhat believable if you know anything about Taiwan! If I was applying to a Taiwanese company, would I be expected to include all of this crazy stuff too?
