Do not go abroad or even apply for an overseas job
until you read this page!

Surprisingly, many people still believe that the easiest way to secure overseas positions is to respond to employment advertisements.

Yes, we post a lot of international vacancies. In fact, we post them daily. However, there is a lot more to international recruitment than responding to posted ads. If you want the best possible options, you need a little bit more imagination.


“I have had five offers for full time teaching positions overseas
... and I only registered as an intern


Here's why...  Employment ads have a very high exposure level. Lots of candidates simply wait until they see a “match”. And when they see it they all apply at the same time. This generates a landslide of applications.  Your chances diminish, even if you are qualified. The other thing is that less popular the school, the more it needs to advertise. Consequently, a lot of people compete for a limited number of mediocre jobs, missing out on great opportunities available elsewhere.

Do you want to know where the real jobs are?

There are about 35,000 American, Australian, NZ, British and Canadian teachers working overseas right now. They change schools and countries every 2-4 years, moving from Athens to Rome, Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro and so on.

These are rewarding positions, with established international schools, offering comfortable tax-free salaries, great benefit packages including life/health/emergency insurance, free round trip airfare, yearly home leave, free housing and utilities, pension plans, bonuses, etc. The family atmosphere of these schools create outstanding conditions for professional growth. Are you interested? 

You can have access to these jobs within minutes!

We post new vacancies every 24 hours and you can use them to apply for work in 5 minutes! (We'll explain it in a few paragraphs.) But before you reply to the first vacancy ad  please read the whole program!

Understanding of the overseas teaching market is what makes the international recruiters LOVE our candidates. And the four essential rules to success are...

Rule #1. Do not re-invent the wheel!

If you try to, you are taking a big risk. Model your job search after our proven methods that have been successful for us and MANY other people to boost your chances.

We've taught in Europe and Japan for 19 years and there is little we don't know about the trade. Simply follow our guidelines + respond to our job ads, and you will be employed sooner than you may think! 

The bottom line? Use our information BEFORE you apply! Even many experienced overseas teachers do not know all their options.

Rule # 2. Do it now. The longer you wait, the more opportunities you will lose.

Because “later” will soon be too late. There are visa procedures, recruiters' flights and relocation hassles so the international recruiting starts early in the year and the timeline is compressed! So let's get it right the first time.

Rule #3. Do not fall victim to simple, inexcusable mistakes!

Oscar Wilde put it this way,  "I am not young enough to know everything."

This is unbelievable but the hard cold facts are... Up to 90% of all new candidates are grounded by simple, inexcusable mistakes! 

Such as:

  • Ignoring the recruitment deadlines ("later" is almost always "too late");

  • Relying on some old assumptions about international work (like, it's teaching English only);

  • Not knowing the current teaching lingo (CV, ELL, IB);

  • Being unprepared for commonly used technologies, such as Skype, online résumé / application, and so on

These are all preventable problems, they take a day or two to fix. There is simply no excuse for them!

Rule #4. There is no Rule #4. Read Rule 1, 2 and 3 again.

What's the single most important thing you can do to land a great overseas contract?  If you are like us you tend to procrastinate. Believe us, this is the worst possible mistake you could make. Nothing compares to it! Thousands of opportunities are lost every year because of procrastination.

Teaching Jobs Overseas: arrow Why is procrastination such a killer mistake?

Most international schools are far away. They do not have the luxury to interview you in your area. Even when they come to London or San Francisco for interviews, your job contract will need employment authorization, called a work visa. Processing takes time. The post office takes time. Even taking photographs for your visa takes time. It all adds up to weeks and sometimes months.  In other words, schools and teachers need a time cushion.

Do you begin to see why so many good candidates fail? They start TOO LATE! It's not about sending your resume,  there's a lot more involved.

Do not procrastinate.  Start your search NOW! 

How exactly do I “start?”  First of all go through the Guide to learn about the overseas teaching market and how it operates. At the same time, supply your information to us so that we publish your teaching résumé (CV) and other information to make you available to the recruiters.

The members area is organized in Steps:”  1. Research, 2. Apply, 3. Interview, 4. Relocate. This is your path to your next overseas position. Simply follow the steps.

As usual, thanks for everything! You are the best!


We got a job! A few weeks ago we went to the AASSA fair in FL and interviewed with about 5 schools.

The one we really wanted was Salvador, Brazil and we got it! Thank you very much for all of your help.

The schools really liked seeing all of the pictures and our educational philosophy. We cannot wait for our next adventure to start!

—Cristiana and Ryder

Thank you for your time and wonderful program.


Almost overwhelming in information, but so useful. I am really glad that we stumbled onto your web site. We have found the program invaluable and refer to it a lot.

—Ken and Kiri

Thanks for your service, I think you are doing a fantastic job! Sincerely,


Keep up the good work. Praying the Lord will continue to guide you both along your way. Thanks for the update, you guys are great!

—Stephanie / Cold-Cold, Ottawa, Canada

I attended the recent fair in Christchurch, NZ and have been offered a job in August. Your guide kept me calm and I can certainly say I have never been better prepared for a job interview. Thanks again,


By using your approach, Dianne and I got jobs in Kuwait this week. When we went to the Queen's Recruiting Fair tonight, we already had our jobs in our pockets! What a relief!

—Jim and Dianne Wilson

Dear Pam and Igor, I was offered 4 teaching positions!

Your advice and suggestions were invaluable in my preparations. I had two interviews lined up before the job fair began, and I was in touch with several other administrators by email as well.

I ended up accepting a Grade 4 position. I taught in Japan for 3 years, so I'm very fond of Asia and it will be wonderful to return. August can't come soon enough!

Also, thank you for setting up my website and scanning my photos I mailed to you. I would recommend you to anyone who is wishing to find a teaching job overseas! Well Done! Sincerely,

—Anita Utas
