A comprehensive beginner’s guide to TEFL (six of the best)

Unread post by John V55 » 26 Aug 2015, 22:34

A series of self-prepared articles

Like everything else in life, opportunities won’t come to you. In a competitive world and amidst the millions of ‘others’, make yourself a product (‘It’s finger lickin’ good and ‘I’m lovin’ it’), that recruiters will search for and employers will buy. It’s not easy, it requires time and effort, but the time investment will pay off in the end.

If there’s a need for this type of information I’m willing to work, time permitting, one-to-one (at absolutely no cost), to help out those struggling.

1. Design a professional looking resume

4. Write some articles and publish them on ‘academia.edu’ (about anything you’re familiar with). This can become your one stop shop for recruiters and writing samples, complete with CV, links out and a showcase portfolio. A extremely reputable site; Google will pick up your posts almost immediately and showcase them (free quality advertising)
