Getting a job is one of the first steps in traveling abroad to teach English. Ok, simple enough, but where does one start? There are no less than 5 million recruiters, YouTube videos, ESL forums, and blogs out there offering advice and direction (and some less desirable commentary).
I see ESL instruction as a long-term endeavor for myself. This realization has led me to research many of the opportunities around the world in multiple industries. I’ve scoped out recruiters, found many job posting portals and forums, researched requirements, and have kept myself abreast of the latest jobs in East Asia, South East Asia, and the Middle East, as well as South America – my ultimate goal!
I try to answer readers’ questions and post information when possible. It’s a harrowing endeavor finding recruiters, gathering documentation and choosing the right school. Hopefully something I have to offer will lessen that burden for you. As always, feel free to ask anything you like. I try to answer every email I receive.
