Employment (Recruiters for Teaching Jobs)

On this page, you'll find many links leading to websites of companies and individuals who are in the business of recruiting ESL/EFL teachers for teaching jobs worldwide. Some of these links lead to sites which also offer other resources related to ESL teaching as well, and not just teaching jobs. Generally, Recruiters receive a fee from the schools for finding qualified candidates for English-teaching jobs.

With so many recruitment companies online, as well as English schools offering their own teaching jobs, you really should not have to EVER pay a fee for placement. However, there are a few slight exceptions to this. Some "volunteer" programs require that you pay a certain amount to cover your expenses while you are overseas. This can be quite costly, in the realm of over $1,000.00 US. Be EXTREMELY careful if you are considering this sort of program. If you really want to volunteer overseas, I would strongly suggest that you try a well-known, multi-national organization such as the Peace Corps rather than a volunteer program that you've never heard of. In addition, some organizations act as placement services and charge the teacher a fee. Some of these will, for example, set up a program where you teach English during the day, and get free language lessons in the native language of the country in the evenings. Others won't offer any "freebies," but will take care of making the arrangements for your visa, travel documents, work papers, and housing. Some will just find you a job and leave you on your own. The fee for these "placement services" seems to run in the several hundreds of dollars. Again, I strongly recommend that you NOT send money to any agency you find online, or at least, not until you have researched it carefully.

With the English teaching job market always growing, there always seems to be a huge need for teachers, especially in China and Korea (the two largest posters on this site). The rule of thumb is, if it sounds too good to be true (e.g. someone offering job placement at $100,000.00 US per year if you only pay their $200.00 fee), it probably is not true. Just be careful out there, folks. If you find any organization on this page that you are suspicious about, please let me know immediately! -- Kristina
