Pagoda Projects: Taipei (formerly known as InternTaiwan) has been offering paid placement programs for students and graduates since 2017 in Taipei. Students stay for a period of 6-12 Months. We are partnered with Universities in the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Canada and we have so far amassed over 60 corporate partners in a variety of industries and sectors, offering over 100 unique placement opportunities. Pagoda Projects: Taipei is a non-profit entity in Taiwan and does not charge agency of partnership fees to corporate partners.

Since Pagoda Projects is responsible for coordinating travel arrangements, complicated Visa procedures, and screening ideal candidates, the process has been greatly simplified for companies based in Taipei to take on fresh foreign graduates and students for a considerable duration. So far, the feedback from partner companies has been extremely positive. Students get a chance to demonstrate their academic knowledge and offer new ideas and fresh perspectives in a professional setting. We are proud that our partner companies (from start-ups to large corporations) get to experience the value of an international employee first hand. Put another way, we have been in the fortunate position to offer the opportunity to Taipei based companies to diversify their workforce.

Our clients range from the world’s largest publicly listed companies to small- and medium- sized privately-owned businesses. We serve clients from most major industries, roughly half of which are multinational corporations, including several Fortune 500 companies.
