How It Started
I was never one of those people who knew what they wanted to Be from a young age. I did, however, know exactly what I wanted to Do: travel the world. One day I stumbled upon a job offer in Korea I couldn't refuse:
- Teach English 12 hours per week.
- Work 4 days a week.
- Get over 4 months of paid vacation.
- Save enough money to pay off loans, invest, and travel.
- Teach mature university students.
Are you kidding me? Nope. This job is for real. Universities from Asia, the Middle East, and beyond are hiring more and more English language teachers every year.
I can honestly say I love my job. I'm only scratching my head as to why I didn't know about it sooner. There was little information out there or resources to help university job seekers. When I tried to get my first uni job, everyone told me you "had to know someone" or "get lucky." I'll admit that those two things help, but I was tired of hearing that. So in 2013 I decided to start this site. Now it has helped hundreds of people find work. Here are few testimonials.
If you have any questions about teaching, uni jobs, or want to give feedback about the site, please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by,
