Help please! What are my chances in Saudi Arabia/ME?

Unread postby vanish » 30 Jul 2012, 23:19

I'm really interested in teaching English in Saudi Arabia or the Middle East. However, all the job adverts seem to specify that 2+ years teaching experience is needed- what are my chances of getting a job in SA/ME as a newly qualified teacher?

For context, here's my background:

> BA (Hons) in English
> Will soon have a CELTA
> 4 months experience teaching English voluntarily in Africa
> 2 months experience voluntary teaching in the UK.

Any advice and answers appreciated!

Only advice is contact them anyway, list your qualifications and experience and ask them to take a chance on you.

Most places will ask for experience, but if they need teachers they will be flexible for a strong candidate.

And there's no harm in trying, is there?

Good luck!

Oh, and obviously being male helps. Most adverts I've seen for those areas specify they'd like a male teacher!
