Many people dream of quitting their jobs, packing their bags and traveling the world. Getting a TEFL or TESOL certificate can be a great way to get closer to this dream. A BA degree (in any discipline) and a TEFL/TESOL certificate of 120 hours will guarantee most people a ESL teaching job abroad. Such opportunities can include working as an ESL teacher in a Private Language School, a Public School, or even in a University. Scroll below to find more information about the most popular sites advertising ESL jobs & training. Here at International Teachers Hub we do not endorse any of the agencies listed below - they are only a suggested guide to help you in your search for an ESL Job.
Remember, recruitment agencies are businesses paid very well by schools for their services. This can mean schools with a lot of money can buy representation, regardless of their academic or moral standards. Hence, we advise teachers to thoroughly research any school before accepting a position.
