I experienced a working holiday in Kaohsiung for one year from February 2020. I am currently writing a blog based on that experience.

Let’s take a look at three things you should know about jobs in Taiwan.


What are the five most famous job sites in Taiwan?

Taiwan Job

There are many different job sites around the world, and of course, Taiwan is said to have more than 10 job sites.

Among them, there are five most famous ones, which I will briefly introduce here.

The 5 most famous job sites in Taiwan
  • 104 People Power Bank
  • 1111 People Power Bank
  • 518 Xiongban
  • Taiwan Employment Tong
  • Indeed

As some of you may have noticed, job sites in Taiwan are characterized by the use of numbers.

I don’t know why, but it may be that they use numbers to help citizens remember them.

These job sites are widely known in Taiwan and are highly reliable, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands.

The following article explains these sites in more detail, so please refer to it.

What are the three characteristics of part-time jobs in Taiwan?

Taiwan Job

When you are on a working holiday or studying abroad in Taiwan, you will probably find many differences in the part-time jobs you experience.

I myself remember feeling the differences from Japan.

I would like to briefly introduce three things that left a particularly strong impression on me.

Three characteristics of part-time jobs in Taiwan
  • Resume is simple
  • The average hourly wage is lower than in Japan
  • Higher hourly wages for foreign language teachers

The major impression I got was these features, but I was surprised by the simplicity of the resumes.

It is possible to make a resume at a stationery store or by yourself, but it only requires writing your name, address and contact information on a small B5 paper.

Also, a typical part-time job costs 160 Taiwan dollars, so many foreigners seem to be teaching foreign languages.

The following article provides a detailed explanation of part-time jobs in Taiwan.

Take care of your physical condition on a daily basis

Taiwan sick

Taiwan is said to have a mild climate with little change in temperature throughout the year.

However, during the winter season starting in December, the temperature drops by nearly 15 degrees Celsius, making it easy to get sick.

A cold or poor health can interfere with your work or studies.

Therefore, it is vital to take action as soon as possible if you think you have caught a cold.
