In 2016 Ade came to Taiwan and studied at the graduate school of Chemical and Materials of the National Chin-Yi University of Technology in Taichung. He enjoys the Taiwanese culture and people, therefore he has set the goal of joining a Taiwanese company before graduation. It will be even better if he could be expatriated back to his hometown. He successfully acquired a master’s degree in July 2018 after completiting a two-year program. After working a year in Taiwan, he found the talent recruitment services provided by Contact Taiwan through the school and Internet surfing as well as participated in the one on one employment meeting (Taipei venue) for the first time in 2019. He was fully prepared and has outstanding abilities such as; multi-lingual (Chinese, English, and Indonesian), knowledge of the market conditions in Taiwan, and Indonesia and he was successfully employed at an established company.
Hon Chuan Group (Ade’s employer) is a company dedicated to OEM of beverage package materials. The company aggressively engages in the global market and has operations in Asia, Europe, and Africa. After he was notified that he was successful in his application, his family was very happy and supported him. With training in Taichung headquarters, he is now expatriated to serve as a production management trainee at Hon Chuan (Indonesia) Branch in his hometown Indonesia.
Ade found the job smoothly and benefited from New Scoring Criteria for Foreign and Overseas Chinese Students to Work in Taiwan. He said that the Taiwan government opens “scoring criteria quotation” for enterprises to more flexibly employ foreign and overseas Chinese students who graduated in Taiwan.

Meanwhile, foreign and overseas Chinese students may have more job options. Therefore, it is a great advantage policy.
