From English teaching jobs in Korea to leadership positions in the Middle East, there are exciting employment opportunities for educators in countries all over the world. However, despite vacancies, we often see teachers missing their windows of opportunity. We see this not primarily because they undergo changes of heart or realize a lack of commitment, but because they don’t know just how vast the education world truly is.
We often see teachers hone their sights on one particular city or country – or on teaching a specific subject or level – which limit their opportunities in out-of-the-box places and positions.
Have you ever considered teaching abroad, but felt like you missed your chance because there were no jobs for you in the exact place or role you first wanted to teach in?
If you answered yes to that question, you’re not alone. Central to landing a job teaching abroad is to allow yourself to be open to opportunities you may not have thought about before. Finding this flexibility will increase your chances of finding a position. This doesn’t mean you need to lower your standards and take a job you don’t want. It means you might be surprised by what you discover when considering new options and places.
I’ve compiled a list of current job postings in countries that you may not have looked into in the past. There are also some positions we don’t come across that often… like Lifeguard/Swimming Coach or High School Drama and Chorus Teacher! Check out the list below for vacancies in Egypt, Kuwait, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, and Qatar.
