I have a TEFL cert. and a B.A. but no teaching experience. I would like to find an ESL job in Ecuador or Colombia and have pretty much decided to plunge in without a job and knock on doors to find work. Does anyone know when language schools hire teachers in Ecuador and/or Colombia?

It depends a lot on which cities you are looking at. In Cuenca, Ecuador, September is a good time to turn up. In Quito probably then and in January, but there are more schools and you could get hired at anytime. Forget about Guayaquil entirely.

Thanks moonraven, in Ecuador I'm thinking of Cuenca, maybe Ambato. In Colombia I'm looking at Medellin but have read conflicting views on availability of jobs there. Does anyone have experience with Cuenca, Ambato or Medellin?

Have you BEEN to Ambato? Not much there, although it is less than an hour from there to Baņos de Agua Santa--a fun place with mineral springs, a decent place to get a massage--and probably the only really good food in Ecuador! Cuenca has more possibilities. Medellin is a big city with a high crime rate....
