Hi guys, Thanks for the feedback! I've been emailing schools and sending my CV, CELTA-scan, etc. but many schools miss our Skype interviews, so we'll see how that all works out. Guess I'll keep trying! Since I've been teaching abroad for a few years, I understand the importance of securing a legit. working visa ASAP-- schools which don't offer this service aren't worth working for. Thanks for the support! Cheers.
Hello everyone! I am a CELTA-certified, English BA-holding qualified teacher currently living and teaching in Vietnam. I am looking to move to Izmir in two months, but have had trouble finding many job prospects online. I've read the forum threads and people seem pretty confident about being able to find work in Turkey/Izmir. What I would like to know is: If I move to Izmir without a concrete job, how possible would it be to secure one (one which would pay for and support a work visa, at that) once I arrive? I have no problem going to Izmir without a job, but would need to know that it's definitely possible to secure one once I arrived. Thanks so much for reading this & I hope to hear from you all soon! You have a great community on this site-- v. cool.
