Yes this is the same post as of 2 days ago before I was told by the administrators to re-post after some problems! Thanks for those who replied on the original post, all your comments were most valuable.

Yes I have posted to numerous other forums since I really have no idea of where to teach yet! Guess that maybe lazy in the eyes of some! For me I was just doing researchÖ.so here is the original post if you want to reply! Thanks!

I have a degree and master degree in business from a UK uni, a 2 week TESOL course qualification, a CELTA, 2 years teaching experience in a college in Thailand, and when i finish my contract at my present job, i will have had 1 years experience in a prestigious Korean university.

My question to all you knowledgeable people out there, is this....

1)What is the best job I can get there with my qualifications in terms of money/hours/holidays etc etc.
2)I donít need to save money, but I donít want to lose money from home either. Is it possible?
3)I donít want to work split shifts. Is it possible to find a good schedule?
4)I would only like to work at 1 institution. Is this possible?
5)Obviously itís nto a deciding factor, but always worth askingÖ.What is the dating scene like there, and is there any chance of having a girlfriend?
How long are the contracts usually for and what happens of you want out?


Any ideas or comments would be most welcome!

Hi,

Did you get my reply? I can't be bothered to type it all again if you did.
Confused

Why's it obvious that it's not a deciding factor? Us males are programmed to find mates, or else we're very unhappy. I'd say that the willingness of the local women is far more important than a good salary. I mean, what is it we're using the good salary to get? Women.

Or look at it the other way. If the local ladies are 'less willing' then you'll need a bigger salary to impress them, which begs a comment about the low salaries in Romania Wink
