Tired of a 9 to 5 job in an office cubicle? Or are you not quite ready for retirement yet and want to see more of the world? Working in Taiwan not only provides you with an experience beyond the world and culture you already know, it puts you at the doorstep of Asia and all of its exotic discoveries.

No, you don't need to know Chinese to work in Taiwan, although it is helpful to know some. You will be able to pick up as much Chinese as you wish while you are there, whether through a classroom environment or through casual conversation. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try new things.

What kind of adventures are available? Taiwan is an island at the crossroads of the Pacific Rim. Take affordable weekend trips to Hong Kong, China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. There is also much to discover in Taiwan, including majestic mountains, seaside vistas, waterfalls, and national parks. Don't forget that there is cultural richness to explore in the indigenous tribes of Taiwan.

The sophisticated cities of Taipei, Kaohsiung, Tainan, Taichung and Hualien offer metropolitan cultural experiences and great shopping bargains, not to mention a nightlife to rave about. Transportation is well-developed, so a car is not necessary to get around. Restaurants offer cuisine from around the world, but while in Taiwan, don't forget to try the local delicacies.

There are good opportunities for Westerners to earn money in Taiwan. Teaching English, of course, is where most of the opportunities are, with jobs paying from US $15-$30 per hour. One can also find private tutoring opportunities that pay more. If teaching is not your thing, there are jobs for Westerners available as translators, copywriters, editors, models, actors/actresses, performers, managers, and much more.

The reason why it is so easy to save money in Taiwan, unless you spend most of your money on travel and entertainment activities, is that cost of living is much less than it is in other countries. With some jobs paying for airfare and accommodations, and with food prices being very reasonable, almost all of your money earned can be set aside.

As we have listed, there are many benefits to working in Taiwan. Many doors may open that you cannot predict. More importantly there are many people in Taiwan who will be enriched by your commitment to your work. Employers are looking for the dedication and commitment from prospective employees. Find out as much as you can about a job before you take it on. You must be open minded to new things and cultural differences and willing to commit to the employers who are putting themselves on the line to hire you. If you are willing to give your commitment to the job and the people it serves, you will, in turn, become enriched as well.

Taiwan has a freedom-loving, democratic government and is a safe place to live. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us. When you're ready to expand your horizons, visit our Employees Page, to post your resumé, view our job postings and find the job that is right for you.
