The journey of teaching abroad, for me, has come to an end at least for now. I returned to the United States in 2013 with hopeful attempts at obtaining a teaching position in Michigan, my home state. With three years of teaching experience overseas, plus my student teaching experience behind me, I was very hopeful. I applied and have gotten several interviews, which was promising.

Let’s weigh my experiences and see how each country stacks up on working conditions for teaching!

Hello All:

I didn't know that I would end up feeling so busy this summer. I've not ever cared for the "non-answer" to "What are you doing?" which is "I'm just so busy!", yet it happens to be "true" for me just now.

Hello All:

Hope this finds you well and that your plans for the 4th (assuming you have plans for such) are coming along just as well!

Teaching overseas can be a great experience - countless articles and blog posts provide advice on how to find the perfect job teaching abroad and what an amazing experience teaching overseas can be.

Hello Readers!

It's "good" to be "back on track", in that I'm closer to being on schedule with this post. It's "also good" in that my last post had been titled "Medical ESL?", partly because I had felt a sense of being closer to having a seizure, which has subsided now such that I may well be "back on track" without concern of seizure.

In my last article I covered how to write a resume for teaching English abroad. This week I’d like to cover some conventional and non-conventional job seeking strategies you can employ to help you find a great job teaching abroad. Many of these same strategies are also applicable to the domestic, non-teaching job market as well.

(Before getting into the meat of this post, I'll gladly share that I felt my workshop at Central with fellow teachers went according to plan. OK, on to the post!)

Hello Everyone!

I’ve been recruiting ESL teachers for nearly 15 years. Over the last decade and a half I have looked at tens of thousands of resumes and helped many thousands of individuals find work teaching English abroad. I have also come to the conclusion that most individuals seeking work as ESL teachers, or seeking work in general, have no idea how or even why to write a resume.
