Hello! I was wondering if anyone knew of any English teaching vacancies in Izmir, with any reputable school? I currently work for the British Council in Jordan and would like to move to Izmir within the next couple of months. I have Turkish and British citizenship (although I left Turkey in 1972). I also have a degree, a postgraduate diploma and a CELTA. I've been teaching English for 7 years in various different countries and have good references. Since I have a good job at the moment, I couldn't really pack up and leave without having a job to go to - otherwise I'd be on the next flight! I have had a couple of offers of interviews, but then have read pretty poor reviews for the schools concerned, which is why I'd like to ask somebody who lives there for advice. If you can offer any advice or information at all, I would be so grateful to you. Best Suzan
Hi Everybody, I recently found this site as I was searching for jobs. I like the tone a lot more than Dave's ESL! Currently, I'm in Korea teaching English. After a rough year, I've decided to leave the country and search for other work. Having lived on the border of Turkey (Batumi, Georgia) and visiting the country once, I've decided that I would love to try my hand at teaching in Istanbul. Something I've noticed, however, is that there aren't as many jobs postings as in Korea. I hear private (or public) highschools and universities are great jobs to get, but there are few postings on the usual websites. Should I just come to Turkey and search then? I would be arriving mid July... would that be too late to get a job? I've heard Istanbul is very expensive. What I'm wondering is if I were to live outside the touristy/hip neighborhoods would I be able to find better accommodation or a better job. From all my discussions, it seems I might have to be on the ground to land a job in Istanbul and Turkey in general. Do I have a chance to get something decent? Many thanks for any responses. I know I've asked a lot of questions. ~Karyn
