Go Direct with TEFL Teacher DIY Jobs - Avoid Grief - Earn More

Why risk identity theft or getting a dishonest job agent or TEFL recruiter who cares most about his own wallet, when you can go direct to the employer/schools with your won resume and negotiate your own contract? You will certainly get a better deal and nobody will be quietly skimming your pay every month. You can get all the school contacts for free from the CFTU on reddit https://reddit.com/r/cftu. And as far as I know, there are no hidden strings attached. I recently got a list of all the Shanghai High Schools from them and I will be faxing my resumes this week. Using middlemen is dangerous and will cost you a 30% - 40% slice of your salary pie.
The best TEFL advice I ever got is at https://reddit.com/r/tefl_tips_traps_scams and right here at TEFL.net.

Good advice IMO.
I suggest every TEFL teacher take a visit to https://reddit.com/r/TEFLscams BEFORE they send off their resumes.

This is the very best advice I have read on this forum. If you need instructions or the list of over 3,000 direct employers, visit https://reddit.com/r/cftu and scroll about 1/3 down the page until you see the big green DIY or the owl. Good luck.
Before sending off your resume or passport scan, be sure to check https://reddit.com/r/teflscams and to vaccinate yourself against foreign teacher job scams.
