Language center rip-off

Postbox letter from Rose

I wanted a change of scenery and when I saw a job advertised in another area, I applied. I received an e mail back asking me to go and have an interview.


How to land that job

Tips for getting a teaching job in Thailand.

Thinking of interviewing for teaching jobs? What's the best way to go about it? What are the questions to ask at an interview and what kind of answers should you be looking for?


Unemployable at age 60

Postbox letter from Kevin O'Donnell

It seems that it is almost impossible for me to gain another teaching position in Thailand (in government schools and universities) as I have recently turned 60


Clouds of smoke

Postbox letter from Fair go

Surely there must be the element in institutions where English is taught for profit in Thailand, that they want to adorn their business prospectus with a young and handsome or beautiful white face.


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.
