Hi. I’m new here. I need help in assessing what my job prospect is in Taiwan because I want to pursue moving there in the near future.
Here are some details about me:
- 22 years old;
- Born in Taiwan; raised in the Philippines; Taiwanese citizen with household registration;
- Took up accountancy in the 2nd best university in the Philippines (though its ranking isn’t anywhere near NTU’s);
- Almost 1 year of experience working in Ernst & Young Philippines (Accounting firm); The service line I chose was tax though, so I’m assuming this will be practically useless in my job hunt in Taiwan.
- My Mandarin is not good but I’m trying to improve on it. My English is good but it’s not great enough for me to teach it.
How will I fare against the locals in Taiwan in terms of job-hunting, salary, etc.? Any ideas as to around how much my salary would be?
I’m interested in anything related to business/finance. It would also be great if it’s a tech company or a multinational company. I’m guessing getting a master’s degree there would improve my chances but I’m reluctant to spend another 2 years studying, unless it’s /that/ much value-adding. Is it better to get more experiences here in the Philippines, maybe in a multinational company, before moving there or would they think less of my experiences if I come from the Philippines? What do you guys think? Any input/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
