Taiwan Expat Working Experience

As many of you know my family and I have been expats in Taiwan for almost three years now, and with many more years in other areas of Asia, and abroad. I work for Cymer/ASML  here in Taiwan, focusing on development of an EUV program. I cannot elaborate more on this technological program, but can invite you as the reader to see our Taiwan working experience through the eyes on an US expatriate. For starters Cymer is a San Diego based company manufacturing light sources for the semiconductor lithography market. It is a smaller company, and was recently bought by ASML about a year ago. Over the last few years this company spent a significant amount of energy rolling out their EUV program, and has the most flexible engineering teams I have ever worked with.

101 in Taiwan, has the Worlds fastest passenger elevator just 37 seconds to the 89th floor.. Wow!
When working abroad it is very important to keep a connection to friends and family back home, but also to develop new connections in your new home abroad. We have been able to be very successful in this regard due to our small family social media hobbies, and website ExploreTraveler.com where we share our photographs, videos, and small blogs. The use of internet communication software such as Skype has tremendously helped in allowing family members to be able to call without any extra costs, and giving us extended phone connection back to the USA.
