The bait and switch Skype experience

The bait and switch Skype experience

My partner and I are going to Thailand in March for three weeks. We are getting hitched there and while holidaying I have a few interviews already lined up. I hate Skype interviews. Done that before when applying for a position in China and it's daunting! You read one thing on their ads and they will say things that don't match at all in those Skype interviews. Not my game for sure! Both interviews I am going to are from ajarn and I didn't even contact them! They saw my profile and hit me up. Lots of other school contacted me but I get pretty annoyed at how they don't show the salary on their ads nor do they want to say what it is via e-mail. They want to discuss salary over the Skype interview. No thanks! I wasted so much time on Skype interviews when I was seeking a position in China that now I can't be bothered wasting time, especially with 10+ years experience teaching.
