To promote the development of Taiwan’s long-term caregiving service system and to cultivate the caregiving service workforce, the Workforce Development Agency, Ministry of Labor, now offers an employment incentive allowance as high as NTD 108,000 per person to encourage young people to join the caregiving service industry and develop their new career there.

Hsiao Hsiang, 21 years old from Yunling County, had tried several operator jobs after graduating from a vocational high school. Nevertheless, he always ended up quitting those jobs because of their standardized and mechanical nature. After quitting the last job, Hsiao Hsiang failed to find any new job or to set up a clear career direction. Frustrated by job seeking, Hsiao Hsiang went to the Yunlin-Chiayi-Tainan Regional Branch of Workforce Development Agency for employment consultation. From the interview, the employment consultant not only came to understand that Hsiao Hsiang wants a job that has a great potential for the future, but also discovered that Hsiao Hsiang possesses a major personal strength: his willingness of sharing things with others and communicating with others. Therefore, the employment consultant decided that Hsiao Hsiang is a good candidate for jobs requiring working with people, and suggested he consider joining the caregiving service industry, which has great development potential and many job openings.

The employment consultant assessed Hsiao Hsiang and recognized that he is comfortable communicating with others, an important quality of caregivers. For Hsiao Hsiang, working in the caregiving service industry is a great opportunity for him to acquire professional skills. The Chiayi Employment Service Station therefore gave Hsiao Hsiang an overview of the caregiving job, and then recommended and referred him to work at a nursing home in Chiayi County. Hsiao Hsiang was hired to be a caregiver there and has received employment incentives for the unemployed. He has worked there steadily for more than two months. Hsiao Hsiang’s main objective at the present is to get familiar with and to adapt to the work environment, and in the future, he wants to become a competent caregiver.

To help people getting a job they want and to cultivate the caregiving workforce, the Workforce Development Agency provides job-seekers who are recommended and referred by the employment service center for a caregiving job, and have been successfully hired, an employment incentive of NTD 5000 to 7000 per month (the total can reach NTD 108000), if other requirements are met. The employment service center is great for young people feeling lost when looking for career direction. The center offers useful employment consultation, vocational aptitude assessment, job training classes, job market overviews, and job referrals and recommendations to help young people find a suitable job and achieve career success.
