Greetings from the Banana republic. Your servitude is required to stand on the street and hand out marketing flyers. I am a master troll, now join the unemployment queue because 'Education and life Long Learning' takes a back seat in an old Skoda in Australia. And Kevin Andrews would like to slash spending on welfare, God save Australia, because the Liberals will not.

Venting my spleen edit. Next time an employer asks me why I decided to become a teacher I will reply politely: I was tired of being classified as a working class individual, and I deplored the fact that Oscar Wilde labelled the working class as immoderate and intemperate individuals that gave ourselves to excess. Or I will reply, I couldn't get a job in the male porn industry because I was too ugly.

I could elaborate further and state: Washing dishes in a restaurant became too difficult to deal with, because middle class chefs were always drunk and abusive towards me.

However, I still can not get a job as a clerk or back room administrator because English is my second language. I decided to become an ESL teacher because I was an ESL learner when I was young. I am hoping I can teach Japanese students so they can assist me with my insufferable orthographic errorrrs.

Not withstanding the tone of the OP.

But I am wondering what the ESL job market is now like in mid 2014.

I am returning to Australia in mid June after 3 years teaching EFL in Korea and am a little apprehensive about my job prospects in this field.

The market is definitely on the up and up at the moment, with more movement in the academic end (EAP/IELTS) than we've seen for many years.

If you are properly qualified and accept that you will most likely be starting off with casual work, then you should have absolutely no problem in finding something quite quickly. Be prepared that your experience in Korea will not be that highly regarded by employers, though.

Thanks for the feedback. That is good to know. I love working in this field and I would hate to have to change careers.

Interesting what you are saying about the Korean experience. Fortunately I do have a couple years experience working in an ELICOS centre in Sydney so hopefully that will stand me in good stead. Qualification should be OK (BEd & MA TESOL).
