I want to teach English in Korea. Will my 2:2 degree and slightly patch work history affect my prospects?
question, I've decided to teach English in Korea, unless something else happens to turn up.
From what I've been reading, the qualification you need is a Batchelor's degree, and TEFL qualifications are more or less useless. I graduated 5 years ago with a UK 2:2 degree (not so good). Since then, I have been doing administration and minimum wage jobs, nothing lasting more than 6 months or so, with a couple of unemployed gaps.
Will this affect my chances of getting a job in a decent school? After reading some of the horror stories about dodgy Hagwons (private schools) I'd like to work somewhere reputable. Do Hagwons or public schools even check out your work history?
A couple of biggypacks: any tips on finding a decent school or even recommendations?
Are there any good forums for Korea newbies while esl cafe
