As a teacher, your success in finding the right job is not solely determined by your teaching abilities.

In fact, many highly skilled and talented educators struggle to find positions that align with their potential. On the other hand, we've encountered mediocre individuals who seem to effortlessly secure high-paying contracts year after year.

This realization prompted us to understand that the main difference is often their ability to effectively promote themselves.

Good teachers are not always good at self-promotion. Don't let this hold you back. Embrace the power of self-promotion and unlock your full potential in your teaching career.

Your time line

With the trend towards online recruiting, your dream of teaching abroad can now become a reality at any time of the year. Most schools initiate their recruitment process in the autumn season, with the majority of vacancies being available in the winter and early spring. This provides you with ample time to evaluate different job offers and choose the ideal location, or even reconsider your decision.

We suggest conducting virtual interviews and obtaining your visa approval before booking your flight. This will ensure a smooth and stress-free transition to your new teaching destination.

Sheila, Vice-Principal -  Abu Dhabi / Singapore“As a Vice Principal, I was making 8 thousand a month (tax-free) in Abu Dhabi. The school paid my rent for a two bedroom apartment. I traveled to 6 different countries in one year and was able to save 50 thousand dollars in one year. It was worth taking the chance.” Sheila D. L. - USA / Singapore


Maximizing your savings in an era of inflation is possible with careful budgeting and lifestyle choices. A modest salary can go a long way when you eliminate expenses such as housing and car payments, insurance, utilities, healthcare bills, credit card debts, and taxes.

Many foreign countries have a lower cost of living, which means that by deducting these expenses from your budget, you could potentially end up with an additional5$10,000 to $30,000 of disposable income. After several years of comfortable living abroad, you can return home with a significant amount of savings. Can any teaching job in the US provide you with such benefits?

The decision is ultimately yours and depends on your lifestyle preferences. While some teachers abroad choose to save their extra income, others opt to live life to the fullest, traveling and exploring new destination

International schools expand, improve facilities to woo students

Getting started in the world of teaching abroad can be intimidating, and many people are hesitant to pursue this opportunity due to the perceived level of difficulty. Some of it is true. The top-notch International schools are picky.

If you're feeling overwhelmed you're not alone. With time and research, you can navigate the process with ease.

wechat“I'm trying to help my daughter and boyfriend... the experience upon arriving is horrid. They were literally driven 3 hours away from the airport and "dumped". The provided room and board are horrid. No mattress so they can't sleep! They have no phone, no contact numbers, there absolutely no English to be found. All I know it was through the internet they found this. Please help! Debbie”

quote I am definitely spoiled by the small class sizes, relaxed student rules, diligent student body, and incredible parent involvement; not to mention the fabulous (never boring) city of Berlin. The trains are so great, I hope I never have to drive again. 

I earn nearly 1/3 more here than I do in the States, am able to travel everywhere in Europe, and still put lots of money in savings. I can't imagine teaching the way I was in the States. All of Pam's advice was right. I feel like I finally started living!

...So, you want a comfortable tax-free salary, paid housing and utilities, global health cover, relocation & shipping allowances, round-trip airfare, paid vacations, renewal bonuses, end of service gratuity, and a retirement plan. And you are looking for free "help wanted" ads?

Wow, the world is just bursting with incredible opportunities! But here's the thing - so many of the best schools out there don't even bother advertising their jobs! Can you believe it? They already have stacks and stacks of unsolicited applications to choose from! Now, if you're new to this whole international scene, you might feel like you're up against some tough odds. But don't let that get you down! Your competition might have all the connections and resources in the world, but you've got something even better - drive, determination, and a fire in your belly! So don't let them eat you alive, okay? You've got this!
