In order to promote stable employment for Taiwan nationals and mitigate the problem of labor shortage in certain industries, the Workforce Development Agency, Ministry of Labor has been vigorously promoting “Measures on Employment Subsidy for Labor Shortage Industries”, providing subsidies up to NT$108, 000 per person.

 

Xiao-Bo, who is 21 years old, joined the army when he graduated from vocational school. After finishing his service, he returned to his hometown of Yunlin, hoping to find a job that would allow him to acquire a skill. The staff at Douliu Employment Center, Workforce Development Agency, accepted his application and provided him with employment counseling. After getting a full understanding of his past work experience, his needs, and desired career path, the staff helped him find a job as a factory worker in a paper container factory near his home and got him an employment subsidy for labor shortage industries. According to Xiao-Bo who has been working for 6 months, he not only learns from his work, but also receives great advice from his coworkers, and he gets along well with them. The efforts Xiao-Bo invested in his work also got the attention of the factory manager, who thinks he is a quick study and a very efficient worker; thus he is considering having Xiao-Bao take shifts in other tech departments so that he may acquire more skills.

 

According to the Workforce Development Agency, when young people start to seek jobs, they tend to feel confused and lost. The Employment Centers are a great channel for job seeking, because in addition to providing job seekers employment counseling, arranging for employment promotion activities, and effecting applicants placement, they also help young people find adaptive jobs so that they are where they best fit. If you are at a turning point of job seeking or job changing or would like to know more about the various measures of employment service, please go to a public employment center nearby or check out the Taiwan Jobs website at www.taiwanjobs.gov.tw.
