[quote=“rockymountainhigh”]I am an American. I’m going through the visa info, as I type this.
Though, the school has a six day work week.
$500-$600 per hour (20-25 hours)
Health Insurance and ARC (no mention of providing a work permit)
Needs me to start by the 13th of this month to replace the outgoing teacher.
Has yet to show me a contract or contact info of any other teacher.
UNLC in Yilan…nobody has heard of it?[/quote]
Most foreigners can’t get an ARC without a work permit, so unless they’re giving you a bride or millions of NT to “invest” in government bonds, that’s probably implicit to the ARC offer.
Contracts are not provided for any jobs here until you’ve demonstrated proficiency via the employers’ “tests.” For buxiban jobs, you just have to hide your sociopathic tendencies or alcoholism well for a ten-minute practicum (that is, until you get out of the buxiban industry altogether). They’re not going to give you the contact info of a teacher who’s leaving, in part because they would have to talk to said teacher (which many buxiban managers and owners dislike doing because it exposes their huge English gaps, and hence their hypocrisy in running such places), and also because they risk the teacher scaring you away from the job.
Don’t expect to work twenty hours per week, by the way. Expect somewhere just under the minimum (12~14 per week), and play the CLA Blackmail Game later on when you find something better.
