A company wants to hire me, but seems to be having trouble getting the initial 'OK" from the government. When they called the labor board they were told a foreigner can`t work in an English school IT department. As well they said for ANY job in Taiwan a foreigner NEEDS to have a Bachelors degree. This seems to be a bit …mmmm… not right? I can hardly image all the foreigners here have a BA in their home country, even to clean toilets, I mean come on. I did some research and found this site
Neither the Chinese nor the English site mentions needing a BA… only a copy of your diploma (degree?) for all types of work. Its very unclear if a degree is the same as a diploma, as the degree clearly states you completed your study. Also, what do you need for paperwork? Is a COPY of the degree acceptable? I don’t feel like handing them my real degree.
As for myself, I have an AS degree, and I have been studying Chinese here for 10 months so I have a student ARC.
I need some real help on the issue as my deadline to go home is June 4th if I can’t get this done properly, and to be honest the school’s hiring staff seems to not quite know all the ins and outs yet either.
