Works in Guangzhou for me
I 'am first timer here in this forum, because I got this link by my good friend.
I 'am Niko Halsio, soon 24 years old from Finland.
My major is restaurant cook, since 2005-2008 and these year I have worked in restaurants and now I working in food market as shop assistant. I 'am doing all works, what I can get to my hands so not only restaurant works. I have been in work-life over 3 years.
I have dreaming about working in Guangzhou, China. I have started looking TESL works in Guangzhou or nearby, but there come problems that I don't have experience about teaching, not native-English speaker (USA, UK etc...), no degree, no TESOL or TESL certificate and recommend letter by school. I 've hear by my friends that their friends has same things (what I mentioned on above) and they have got these jobs. It is really strange situation.
I really want come to work to Guangzhou and I like want to do something new works as I lack some experience from these majors, except restaurant cook works. Any good tips, what I should do and where I should search? Do I need come to Guangzhou city and search there? If yes, how long I need reserve a time for searching?
I wish by all people if can somehow help me in this situation. :(
i think its getting more strict for non native and even for the ones dont have profession teaching diploma. smaller cities might be possible still... try in foshan, zhuhai, zhongshan...
As i know, there are many foreigner teaching English in GZ, so if you wanna teach in this kind of big cities..Hontestly, it is difficult.
I think u may choose some small cities in the begining.
Good luck !
