As I write, I’m sitting at a guest house in Krabi Town waiting for a ferry to Koh Lanta on the first day of our three month summer vacation. It’s very hard to believe that we have two semesters at ABAC and 8 months in Thailand behind us already.
We’ve been applying to a ton of jobs and this week were presented with two very interesting opportunities:
I’ve started to get back into the job search, and even I know it’s still probably way too early, I just want to stay on top of it just in case anything comes up. Right now, most schools are still filling positions for the semester starting with May, but as long as the posts don’t say May specifically, I’ll still apply. And, I guess it’s paying off because I just had my first interview.
The first thing we did after deciding we want to go to Thailand to teach English was look into the job situation there. From what we’ve read on various websites, getting a job in Thailand is fairly easy, but having a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certificate not only increase your chances but also could increase your pay. After hearing/reading this, we knew this would be a must-do.
