Generally speaking, common sense rules apply at all times. However, we do have some additional guidelines to prevent cross-cultural misunderstandings between Thai schools and foreign teachers:
1) If you are looking to recruit native English speakers only, please do not make references such as, "white teachers only," as this is likely to offend some people.
2) Please give as much information as you can in your job descriptions. How many hours a week will the teacher work? What benefits do you provide to the teacher? How long is the contract? Do you provide health insurance? Etc, etc. You can never give too much information in your job advertisements.
3) Please take extra care when choosing the salary range from the drop-down menu. If a teacher goes to a school for an interview and the salary or rate they are offered is different to the one advertised on ajarn.com, then it is ajarn.com who they often complain to!
4) When you post a job advertisement, you will notice there are three fields;
a) Job Title
b) Short Description
c) Full Description of Job
Please note that if you are posting a bronze, silver or gold job ad, the information in the short description does not appear in the final advertisement. The short description should just be a one-sentence summary of the position.
Here is an example of how to fill in the three fields:
