Hello,

I'm an expat who desperately wants to return to his family in the USA. I would appreciate any advice.

The good news: I have, quite honestly, a very impressive resumeómany years of experience in the USA and abroadómuch of it at the university level. In addition, I am the author of several ESL-related textbooks. I have an MA in Linguistics but no teaching certification.

The bad news: I am in my late 50s, which means I am likely to be the victim of age discrimination. No matter what the laws are, it still happens. And I need to make enough to support a family. Our kids are still fairly young, and a part-time, adjunct, no benefit job just wonít work for me.

Do I have any hope? Iíd really appreciate any adviceóeither of a general nature or about specific employment opportunities. Iím based in the Midwest but will consider anything.

Thanks

Edmond

Try higheredjobs.com, chronicle.com, and TESOL.org's career center. Seriously consider joining TESOL.org as well.
