I've just registered here with the hope of finding some answers to questions and uncertainties regarding teaching English in Indonesia..
Here's my situation.. I have 2 BA degrees, in English and History (though not teaching), have worked in English a lot through jobs at newspapers,
and writing.. in my late 20's..
So what I really want to do is to teach English in Indonesia, particularly Jakarta. However, with no teaching experience or TEFL degrees, it seems
like it will be difficult if not impossible to find a job, no matter how experienced with the language I am.
To add to the trouble, at the moment (until October) I'm working in a national park in Wyoming, which is very isolated, and far away from any of the schools
which offer degrees, other than online. As for online degrees, what would actually be useful, that would help to get a job?
I guess it seems very far-fetched to get a job without direct experience, but I would still like to try my best. Being willing to do anything necessary is a benefit, I hope.
Please give me any advice you can, I'd appreciate it!! Thank you
