Re: Using a 'Functional' CV, I only have some TEFL experienc

Thanks a lot Alex, that's very helpful. My only criticism about using a functional CV is the fact you have to put your academic record at the end of it. Or atleast that's what most people seem to be doing with a functional CV. My academic results are one of my strong points and I thaught it might be...

Using a 'Functional' CV, I only have some TEFL experience.

I'm thinking about changing my CV to the Funtional format on the basis that I only have a small amount of Tefl experience, doing one to one tutoring. I should also note I have my BA degree. What do you think?

Getting a Visa for Korea, before or after getting a job.

Just wondering what the best plan of action is. Should I apply for a visa before getting a job in South Korea or after? Or do agencies usually set you up with a Visa? Furthermore, if I have to apply before I get a job, should I wait till I get my Visa before I apply? It should be noted, my initial p...

Re: Is it a problem if youve got a year gap in your resume?

Is it a good idea to mention that you work for your self, doing one to one tutoring with students? Could it come across as a cop out?

Would you consider a 1 week to be too short when trying to practice with other students along with the 6 hours of teaching classes? Also, would you consider doing the course in a college (f...
