There is now a plethora of TEFL job sites,

so many in fact that many schools and employers are now beginning to seek alternative channels for recruiting their teachers.Why?
- Often the sites charge disproportionately high fees for the jobs ads.
- Busy recruiters don't have time to sift through the teacher CVs.
- Teachers rarely follow the instructions in the job ads correctly and therefore by displaying their ignorance, they don't get hired Other problems
which job seekers are faced with are those of choosing a TESOL course. The prices charged for some on-line courses is scandalous when compared to the operational costs (sometimes not more than £6 a month for the hosting of ther web site, and the part-time salary for a one-man-show). They are often not much cheaper than a real, face-to-face course., which is now demanded by the schools offering the better paid jobs. Read more about TESOL course scamsThus, it is not job sites
which are less demanding in qualifications, but the schools that advertise. Probably the sites to look at are the ones that charge the most for advertising, they will be the ones that should have the money to offer decent salaries. - but see my comments above.
The majority of TESOL teachers
are looking for opportunities to teach abroad - which reflects the focus of most of the EFL job sites. My advice is to use the power of Google and use such search words as EFL, TESOL, TEFL, teaching, job, jobs, UK
, and do some systematic researching.
You could start here though at one of the UK's most popular sites:http://jobs.tes.co.uk/home.aspxBut do by all means read the extremely valuable advice given here: Ten Tips for getting a good TESOL teaching job
