A journey into the over 60's TEFL graveyard

John V (Thailand)

When it happened, it occurred at the speed of light. Having lost its contract with the local education authority, my company and I parted on amicable terms and moreover, in an uncharacteristic display of Chinese efficiency, within one week I found myself on a flight from Northern China back to Thailand.

Thailand doesn't seem to want me


The gaps between finding work were becoming untenable - months at a time, this time specifically five months without work.

Power resume!

When you put your resume in front of an employer, you are the product.

Whether your resume is scanned for six or sixteen seconds, you've got precious time to make an impression. Power resumes that work are effective because, as marketing brochures, they spark an interest in a particular product - you!

It's the time of the year for the job surge

April and May are good times to be looking for a teaching job in Thailand. Getting one starts with a resume or a Curriculum Vitae. We all know how it works, and what what to put into it, right?

Take the first job you can get

There are "Teachers in Thailand" rooms that I belong to that say don't settle for anything less than 40K when it comes to a teaching job, and although I do agree with them, that's easier said than done.
