When applying for a job through any recruiting agency I think everyone is a bit skeptical. This is because I've heard stories of people being promised certain salaries and holidays and the agencies have not stuck to their contracts. I read through the contract YG provided me with and any questions I had, Alex was able to answer for me. He assured me that what was written in the contract was what I'd be getting so I had to just take a risk and take his word for it. And what was written in the contract was exactly what I received and I appreciated YG's honesty throughout the whole process.
I really did not expect to have as much assistance from YG as I did with my initial move to Taiwan. They organised a lift for me from the airport, a hotel and someone to help me find an apartment and buy all the necessary things I required. Any query I had was dealt with immediately and in a friendly manner. When I moved from Sanzhi to Danshui, YG helped me. AND when I moved, yet again, from Danshui to the city YG helped me. Also, If i had any questions with regards to admin I had to deal with, such as health or tax matters, YG was more that willing to assist.
I'd definitely recommend YG to others. YG has never let me down and are very helpful and friendly. They will go out of their way to make sure your move to Taiwan is as smooth and comfortable as possible. And, even after you've settled in they will be at your assistance. If I come back to Taiwan, which I hope to do one day, I will definitely apply for a job through YG. No question about it.

I was surprised how YG was there for me every step of the way, not just the first month (I'm talking 24 months!) Anytime I had a question or needed some assistance they were there in a heart beat. They helped me get my scooter license, buy a scooter, and showed me how to file my taxes!
Of course I would recommend YG! They're patient, supportive, and understanding. The bottom line is, they take care of you! When you're far from home and in a new country THEY are the ones who make the transition seamless.

After starting with YG, I was pleasantly surprised by the help I received with finding an apartment in rural Taiwan, getting settled into my school, and getting all of my paperwork in order. Jason even helped me go door to door in Jingshan to find an apartment, as there were very few listings available online. I think the thing that was most pleasing was the positive attitude of YG staff and my coworkers, and the friendly atmosphere that I found waiting for me when I arrived in Taiwan - I knew right away that I was important, and that I was in a good place.
Not only would I recommend YG to others, I already have. YG has been a help full, professional agency, and I've felt nothing but kindness and consideration from the staff at YG. The YG team are always eager to help, and I never feel uncomfortable asking for assistance when I really need it. YG is a trustworthy, honest, hardworking team of good people, and their great attitude is part of the all round positive experience I've had over the past two years. I'm looking forward to signing up for another contract with YG soon.
