Hi All,

I'd like to learn your insights on what would the ideal profile be to leap across the Middle East into SE Asia?

I'm interested in a university or college position in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, or other beach accesible destinations. What credentials would make you more marketable? Here's my profile: CELTA, BA, MEd TESOL, and 10 years post-secondary experience (seven in the Middle East).

Thanks!

Try Singapore. With your quals you should be able to earn around SGD$6000 per month.

Singapore is a short flight away from all the great SE Asian spots, and budget airlines are in abundance.

Hello there,

WIth your qualifications you might try Brunei. The other SE Asian countries will most likely pay you a local living wage. However you might be lucky and find a full time EFL gig in an international school...although most of them do prefer you have a Masters in Education. Good luck! Smile
