What is the
rejection rate for TEFL Jobs?
What are my
have seen so many different kinds of people, with so
many different kinds of (or lack of) training and
education - working in different countries, that I think
it would be difficult to NOT find a job.
Finding what you want
Depending on what you have to offer, you may, or may not
be able to find exactly the situation you want.
Personally, I would like to work two days a week, two
hours each day, and save a couple thousand dollars a
month. But, it's not going to happen.
You'll need to balance your potential value to an
employer with your specific skills. Particularly when
you are first starting out. Do seek the kind of job
you want - in the country you want. But do also be
realistic about wages, working conditions and benefits.
Don't believe everything you hear
There are a lot of people on the Internet who will tell
you how nothing is required except chatting with a few
students and you can salt away a small fortune.
Well, maybe twenty years ago. As exciting as these
stories are, they are not good stories on which to base
your first overseas job.
Nor your second or even fifth job!
Middle of the Road
Seek a middle of the road path in looking for your first
job and you will find what you are looking for. It's
out there. Just be realistic. Once you get some
experience under your belt, you'll be much more able to
accurately evaluate your employment options.
That is the real issue here.
