I was born in 1979 in the U.S (U.S citizen), parents are/were both I.D card holders, and I lived in Taiwan when I was young. I was registered in the “Hu ji” when I lived there (5 years). Now that I’ve graduated from college, I want to go back to Taiwan to work.
My field is the finance field, progressing to become a CFA/Analyst/Portfolio Mgr. I have 1 year of private equity analyst work, which is non executive.
Of all possible fields in Taiwan I could possibly work in, they are:
- Finance / Accounting / Consulting / Other Business
- Teaching English
Those are my preferences in order as well. Now my questions are:
Can I somehow get a Taiwan permanent residency status without getting drafted? I understand I can get Type 2 (Overseas Chinese Passport), but doesn’t this do me no good since I can’t legally work in Taiwan with this status?
If I enter using an American passport, how hard is it to get hired in the Business industry (non teaching English)? Is it even possible? Again, please refer to my preferences in industry above. I’ve already gotten interview opportunties but am unsure of how I should approach my work status before I enter Taiwan.
I understand it’s no problem entering with an American passport to teach English, since the VISA is easily sponsored. I was thinking about doing this part time before I start “real” work (if possible). Should I still try to get sponsored as a foreigner?
Thanks in advance! I really really appreciate any responses.
