It's really up to you

Postbox letter from Ian Bkk

What suits me as a teaching job, is very different from the next teacher. We all have different needs.


Schools are not Hooters

Postbox letter from Sar C. Astic

Comparing the hiring process of Hooters to a school in Thailand is not only illogical but also utterly tasteless.


Asian features seal my fate (part two)

Postbox letter from Multi racial American

The example of being discriminated at Hooters for not being a sexy young female is not equitable with my discrimination here. That is the restaurant industry in America and this is education


Discrimination exists all over

Postbox letter from Dan

Undoubtedly there is racial discrimination in hiring. There is also ageism in hiring, even in the U.S.


You give customers what they want - it's a business

Postbox letter from Joe Hoeson

I would like to say that my original letter was regarding whether or not it's okay to put 'native speakers only' need apply. Now, whether or not native speaker is used to mean we do not want black or Asian teachers is another story.


Asian features seal my fate

Postbox letter from Multi racial American

Schools can technically hire whoever they want. If they want white faces, there is nothing that can be done about it.


Let's not kid ourselves

Postbox letter from Anonymous

The bottom line is that Thailand does not adhere to non-discriminatory hiring practices: height, age, attractiveness, overall appearance, and especially skin tone are typically and explicitly considered for any job that requires working with the public


Job ads are not racist

Postbox letter from Joe Hoeson

Having been a school owner before, I see nothing racist in saying that I only want native speakers to apply.


Racism in job ads

Postbox letter from Sar C. Astic

This letter is for employers who post their job ads here on Ajarn.com. I hope that you will consider "some" non-native English speakers. Changing "NES only" to "NES preferred" can make the ad more sensitive to NNES like me.


Age discrimination and stagnant salaries

Postbox letter from Beauregard

Why does there tend to be a cap of 55-60 for the hiring age, regardless of excellent qualifications and experience
