How can they guarantee you a job unless it's with their company? Or if they pull strings to get you a job somewhere else? What happens if you do your TEFL cert in Europe, but want to work in Asia, can they guarantee that you'll get a job there? Probably not.
You've got to read between the lines. Most often than not, guaranteed job placement doesn't mean what you think. It usually means the following:
- They'll help you write a TEFL CV
- They'll show you where to find TEFL jobs online
- They'll give you some interview and demo lesson tips
So the next time you see a TEFL course announcing that they have guaranteed job placement, take it with a grain of salt. No one can guarantee that you'll get the job: it's up to you to wow the interviewer with your personality, skills, qualifications, and experience.
