Getting Your First TEFL Job
We get it, you’re nervous about finding a job.
That’s really the end goal of taking a TEFL course, right? To get a great job teaching English. We understand how you feel, we totally felt that way once too, but rather than capitalize on your fears and inexperience like some TEFL schools and offer “a guaranteed job within 30 days”, we want to tell you the real story.
Q: What is the job market like for English language teachers?
A: English language teachers are in extremely HIGH demand all over the world and online. The demand is only increasing, which means schools NEED you. So whether you fancy living in Spain or dream of life on a remote Thai island, there is a job out there for you. One of the BEST parts of TEFL is the flexibility it gives you to explore the world.
Q: What should a TEFL course provide in terms of job support?
A: The number one thing to know is that you don’t need a TEFL course to guarantee you a job. You need a TEFL course to prepare you for your interviews, empower you to be a good teacher and to be transparent with you about one of the most important decisions of your life. TEFLPros does all of these things.
Q: What does it mean when other TEFL courses offer “job guarantees”?
A: Here’s the deal – those TEFL courses take kickbacks from schools to place you in a job. So getting you your dream job isn’t really their priority. They get paid, you get your “guarantee”, but is it really the best job for you? Probably not. TEFLPros doesn’t take any money from schools or recruiters; we focus on helping you, our grads, not padding our bank account.
Q: What does TEFLPros do differently?
A: Our approach is not like other courses, and that’s why it works! GoOverseas rated TEFLPros as the number two best course for Job Assistance out of ALL courses (both in-person and online). With help from our award-winning job assistance team, a polished resume, a portfolio of lesson plans and the training to do the job properly – you guarantee YOURSELF a job.
