Chinese New Year next year is January 23, 2012. That means that you should probably arrive on January 15. Make sure you have a cell phone and start calling schools on January 16. That leaves you a week to apply for jobs that Taiwanese employers know will be vacated. Then nothing will happen from January 23 to 27. Then your best chance of winding a job starts January 30, when buxibans realize that I teacher has pulled a runner. If you don't have a job by Monday, February 6 then you will be facing an uphill battle. Most jobs will have been filled by then and few new jobs will be opening up.

Exceptions do apply, that is just my experience.


Thanks JZer.

But man, one to two weeks to pull it all together or get sent back. Scary...
