Bringing the World Closer
Just wanted to share some useful links here that may help in your job search.
Social networking sites as these could lead to jobs as well.
These may be good ways of finding work or getting some ideas.
Does anyone know or has ever used this website: http://www.teachermexconnect.com/
We must pay a $40 fee and they promise to help us for "a lifetime". I found pretty nice posts but I'm concerned...
Has anyone paid to find a job?
Happy New Year to all!
Glad someone else was thinking the same thing! I agree, their posts seem very inviting, but I'm a bit weary of paying. Interested to hear if anyone else has an opinion.
In my 5 years experience working with different recruiters and companies, I have never paid a penny for any service. I think you need to use extreme caution when using a recruiting agency that asks for any money for their services.
With so many recruiters and hiring agencies around the world I would never pay for a job placement in the ESL industry.
Best of luck to everyone looking for work. It's out there, trust me. It may take a bit of time, but as long as your flexible and patient you will get a job in English Education.
I totally agree with you, plus you've just said what I needed to hear from someone!
I wanted to use it but couldn't b/c I'm 59 and too old for recruiters. What I did use and had fabulous luck is the hiring campaign with www.seriousteachers.com for $39. It's a fabulous resource for older teachers. In fact, teachermexconnect referred me to them when I emailed them about my age concern. You pick 3-10 countries and they send your resume to every school in their database for those countries. I chose Mexico and countries in Central and South America. My resume was sent to 300 schools and I was inundated with emails that ranged from an immediate offer, to requesting an interview, to their not having any positions. I spent a week having lots of interviews via Skype, which resulted in multiple job offers, one of which I picked. The beauty of this is that the campaign is guaranteed. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at:
Good luck! Cathy
