In Response To: Recent Ling Grad w/ TESOL certificate suggestions (Majed)

Congratulations on your recent academic success.

Where exactly do you want to be - domestic or international teaching? You will have to do some soul searching about what you want to do with your qualifications.

As a "newbie" you will have some restrictions with regard to successfully competing for EFL/ESL teaching positions both in North America and the Middle East.

Most graduate ESL/EFL newbies get their feet wet, so to speak, in Korea, China, Thailand.
Research Dave's ESL International Job Board for teaching ads in those countries and a few others.

Again, that is if you are interested in an international teaching experience, not every one is.

If you are only interested in teaching in the US/Canada/Australia/U.K be prepared for part time teaching stints since the English language teaching profession is saturated with teachers, like yourself, and the competition for a full time position is very stiff.
