Hello,

I am planning to work as an ESL teacher, but I am not sure about my chances to get into Singapore. Can anyone with experience help me and tell me how I stand?

I am a 27 year old white male from Europe. I am not a native speaker, but my English is native level. I worked in USA as a manager for 4 summers, which amount to about 20 months in USA. I have CELTA that I got in New York, and a bachelors in Education. If I can't get in Singapore, are my qualifications good enough at all for someplace?

Thanks!

Yes, you can get work here.

A CELTA and some experience is good enough.

How do I do that? Should I go there and try, or go to jobsdb.com and just apply? I just found jobs that are for kindergarden, and not even a lot of those. I really want to accomplish this, but I am not sure how. I have enough money for one shot at this, wanna make it right!

Thanks for the reply by the way

Just turn up and scout around. Singapore is an expensive place to job hunt.
