Teacher helping a student


quoteWithin two months after I obtained a web page via Joyjobs to "sell" myself, I got a job with an international school in Germany. The photo, introduction, and ability to show my credentials made a difference.

I would highly recommend your service to anyone seeking employment overseas or even in their own country. In today's world filled with technology, being able to open a link and view information about a potential educator is very handy to employers.”

―Kristina, USA


quoteI would like to mention that I found employment through Joyjobs and I couldn't be happier. I'm working in Montenegro!


quoteWe were offered three positions and ended up accepting one in the Hague, Netherlands.

We chose the school best suited for Don... and our daughter, who will be in 7th grade next year. Thanks again!

―Donna and Don

quote Although we are overseas veterans, it's always nice to pick up a few new insights. (We were in Brazil for 4 years and Saudi Arabia for 2 years.) Your tips are very helpful. I've picked up several pointers that I will put into practice at the next interviews.

I also liked the way you outlined the approach to schools, what to say and not say at sign-up and at the interviews, etc.

―Karen D.

quoteIt has been very exciting to realize how much is out there if you just know where to look! So don't stop with those updates!

What I value in my overseas teaching job —by Pamela Campbell

Teaching in a public school is not for everyone.

I have a strong personality but I am a bad policeman. If you prefer teaching to maintaining discipline then an overseas school is a better place for you.

If you expect interest and respect from your students and their parents, instead of indifference and hostility, then teaching overseas is for you.

Live tax-free!

What is even more important, you enjoy free housing /utilities, round trip airfare, health/life insurance package, settling-in allowance, baggage allowance, pension plans, bonuses, etc.

A lot of opportunities open for you when you are not under the pressure of taxes, insurance, car payments, mortgages, etc.

People usually ask, "How much am I going to make?" The right question is, "How much am I going to save?"

It is quite common to save 40-50 % of your salary living a very comfortable lifestyle. It gives you the sense of freedom you'll never have at home.

Of course, there are many low-paying positions where the main compensation is an exciting experience. However, the most lucrative teaching jobs are also overseas.

The personal aspect is clear. Most single people either get married or find partners after some time overseas.

In one year you will have more personal encounters than in your whole life at home. Unless you are a complete bore or a couch potato, you will make tons of friends.

A Word to Singles!

The community of expatriates or simply people enjoying a few years overseas is a diverse group of single, married, divorced, or family-oriented individuals from many countries and backgrounds. I never thought I would get married and had planned to work my way around the world.

The so-called 'isolation' of being in a strange environment often brings people of similar languages together, the group-oriented cultures of other countries demand mutual outings, the family atmosphere of many international schools brings people closer, the list of wonderful ways to meet people is endless. Being single is a good reason to pursue employment overseas!

A Word to the Shy and Retiring Teachers out there!

Are you short on social graces? Are you tongue-tied at cocktail parties? Don't fret because your new life awaits you! Say good-bye to your shy social ways because in your new environment, no one will know your past. You'll be able to start over to become the person you want to be. Don't think that an exciting life overseas is only for extroverts. There are innumerable opportunities overseas for you to come out of your shell and live a vastly different lifestyle. You may even become the life of the party! So let's get on with it!

This website contains all the necessary information that you will need to start a successful international teaching career. Proceed with gumption


"I presently have five or six schools looking at me. I have never had such excitement generated around me in such a way before. I think it's all due to your help and the hard work you did to make me look good in this vast busy market...

... I've just singed a 12-month contract and things are moving ahead."
