International Job Seeking Resource for Teachers: It’s Serious!

Looking for an extra employment resource for overseas classroom positions? Here’s one I tried out when we were on the road for a few months, with rather decent results.

The web site? SeriousTeachers.Com.The premise? Simply post your profile and resume for free. Schools and head hunters who are also registered get to post job openings that you can respond to individually, and they will also approach you if you have qualifications or interests in your profile that meet the types of jobs they offer. The first contact will be through email, and then you’ll progress from there, depending on how great the match is.

As with any type of resource like this, you will want to do your part to ask around the circuit about a particular school, ask for other teachers for school quality references, etc. However, I have to say that I consistently got serious offers, although none that were quite the right fit for me at the time. There was even one that was from a school where some good friends of ours used to work, so they were able to provide references to both the school and us. How cool is that?

If you are looking for a place to start exploring your options without a huge initial cash outlay, Serious Teachers could be for you. Have a success story about the site, or any other type of experience you feel people should know about? Feel free to sound off in the comments section below.
