What's the work situation like in Romania these days. One, how long would it take to find work?? Second, hows the visa situation for Americans???I am currently in Turkey and the pay here is horrid.. No comment on the Muslim lifestyle..

I've posted in more detail on work opportunities in Romania in other posts. Check them out for more details.

In brief:
Language schools - very few, mostly hire local staff, pay badly.
International Schools - good pay and conditions but not that many opportunities and increasing competition for posts.
Self-employed - pays ok once you've built up a full schedule but takes time, reputation and contacts to get there.

How long - If you are qualified (i.e. degree, TEFL cert. and/or maybe some other teaching certificate) then you might try applying to the American high schools/international schools. There are only a couple so I wouldn't expect a quick move.

Visa situation for Americans - not great as teachers from other states in the union (i.e. the UK and Eire) can work without needing a visa meaning schools prefer them.

Hi - I['ve seen a lot of jobs in Romania on the TES (Times Educational Supplement) online - Just google it and click on jobs > international postings. I think most of them are in International schools so a teaching qualification is necessary. Hope that helps.
