Quick Tip: Talk to Teachers Before Accepting a Job

When getting hired from abroad it's hard to know if the school you'll be working for will be good or bad, since chances are you won't be able to visit before you start working. One thing that you can do is do your research before you go. Do a search or go to forums, such as Dave's ESL Cafe and see if you can find anything.

Another thing you can do is ask the school to put you in touch with past or present teachers. Granted, the school isn't going to put you in contact with teachers who hate working there, but if they downright refuse to put you in touch with anyone, don't consider taking the job. By talking to teachers you can learn about the school, city, school, and other people at the school.
