Coming to Peru, June 3rd. Will be in Trujillo by the 4th. Leaving on the 9th. Will be back next year after to live. Should I hand my resume out now and try to secure a job many months from now? Am I just thinking silly? Can't wait to eat ceviche norteņo once again.

It depends on your qualifications and experience really. Most places won't know what their requirements will be a few months down the road but it wouldn't hurt to show your face around a dn meet the right people. When you are then closer to your long term stay, get back in contact with them and see what the state of play is.

CIDUNT and El Cultural have vacancies fairly regularly - best talking to them towards the end of the month ready for the next cycle.

Get in touch when you arrive and we'll all go out for a beer.

And don't for get Fleming as well. YOu could start there at the begining of next year and it's probably the best place to work there in Trujillo, salary and atmosphere wise.

I've been to Fleming in the past. My mother-in-law introduced me to both Mr. Nocker and Mr. Lescano and they gave me a tour of the facilities. I was also there last year to see a science project my brother-in-law did before he graduated from there. I need experience teaching, basically. That's my only flaw, except that I also happen to to be speaker of American English. There's that, and no TEFL qualification. All I am presently is a guy with an Associate's degree who happens to like linguistics and speaks two languages. I'm hoping my status as a full time student at University of Phoenix will improve my chances as I am striving to complete my degree. I want to take my CELTA later this year also.

Hi there
If you want to pick up something straight away - try El Cultural, they are always looking for people and love having native speakers there. They will probably start you off on weekend classes, but after a few cycles of working weekend classes, ask for some weeknight classes.
The weekend classes go for four hours on Saturday afternoon and then three and a half hours on Sunday morning.
Depending on the make up of the class, it can be quite challenging holding the students' attention span on the weekends for that long, but most of the time they are there because they want to learn. One class I took had a range from 13 years up to a guy in his mid fifties.
Some of the students there may also be interested in taking private classes, especially when they are preparing for their TOEFL exams - which I think are mid year and then again at the end of the year.
Fleming is definitely a place to try too, a fantastic atmosphere with lovely people - I really loved my time working there. Feel free to PM me if you want any further info about El Cultural
