How Can I Get a Great English Teaching Job Abroad When I Have Little Experience?

How Can I Get a Great English Teaching Job Abroad When I Have Little Experience?

 

 

I guess this – how do you land a great teaching English job in a foreign country when you don’t have much experience – is a question that is on the tip of many people’s tongues when they are either new or relatively fresh to the teaching English in a foreign country scenario.

 

However, if you compare this proposition with any other job or vocation, then the facts generally dictate that it’s not going to happen.

 

I mean, why would a top employer take on a fresh graduate and offer them a middle managerial position on 80 grand a year? It’s highly unlikely, is it not? Unless of course that fresh graduate won over the likes of Donald Trump or Alan Sugar on “The Apprentice” or something like that. 

 

Notwithstanding, I do know of some folks who have garnered less than the normal prerequisite of two years teaching experience, and yet they’ve still managed to land a nice spot ahead of the chasing peleton.

 

And how have they accomplished this?

 

They’ve watched on a regular basis for job vacancies in the same city, or at least the same country, as they are currently teaching in. Said job vacancy is with a high-paying and reputable employer. They’ve interviewed well because they know their stuff and are confident about their abilities.

 

And even though they may be lacking in hands-on experience, the fact is that they have a decent track record, they are enthusiastic, obviously capable, and, they were AVAILABLE for a FACE-TO-FACE interview.

 

That last point is key here, given that there could well be a shortage of alternative candidates who are in a position to interview “on the spot.” This is frequently enough to be offered a coveted opportunity in the vocation of teaching English in a foreign country.
