Feeling sad…

Standard

Hey everyone, I hope that you are well! I am currently feeling sad! I have had no response from the Portuguese applications; nothing, not a peep. I have been looking at other places. I am also waiting to heard from my current “part time” job to see if they are willing to take me on full time and as the Duty Manager. We have had a chat but they cannot say “yes” or “no” to me taking over the position – this is the reason why I am sad – I will have to hand in my resignation to my current “full time” employer on or before July 31st; which is only a month away. I have the letter ready; as I have done since last year as we were going to be made redundant – which never came to pass; all I need to do is change the date on it. That will not take me that long to do…

Also, I have been thinking should I start looking for a place to work that starts in September or January. If the job is a September start; it will not give me enough time to get the flights, visas etc. ready in time. However, a start date of January could be more viable – especially as I have been looking for places where they pay for the flights – for example: Korean Horizons. There is an allowance amount; if your flights is less you keep the cash but if it is more you pay the extra. To me that sounds reasonable. I have been doing some research though; I saw an advert on the I-to-I TEFL Job Boards for Korean Horizons and with any advert that says “Recruiter” I do a quick internet search. There were some interesting and helpful reviews of KH and its staff’ However; there were a few that made me a little nervous.

Has anyone got any experience of using a Korean recruiter or have used KH in the past?

I really need to get myself sorted not, as I am starting to hate what I am currently doing…

Hey everyone, I am sorry that it has been a while since I last wrote. I have been a little down in the dumps (a quick idiom for you there!) about my TEFL career recently. As you all remember, I have been applying for jobs all over the world as well as thinking about the internships.

I have been feeling a little let down, that the jobs I have applied to in Europe have not come through or that the companies have not contacted me about the positions I applied for. If, I am to start my TEFL adventures properly in September I need to hand in my resignation by July 31st. That is not that far away…I will need to keep hurting!

I am going to look on other TEFL jobs sites; like Dave’s ESL Café for example.

Is there anywhere you think I should look? If so, add it to the comments below!
