TESOL Cert Italy/ Hiring Season

Posted By: Francesco <cesco319@yahoo.com>

Hi,
so obviously the various pros and cons of different tesol,tefl,celta certifications have been discussed ad nauseum on this message board so hopefully without being repetitive, I have two specific questions that I hope someone has had experience with:

1. I am considering a weekend TESOL course at Northern Virginia Community College that includes 78 hours of instruction and 25 hours of class observation. Would this kind of certification be adequate in landing be a job in Italy? I understand that CELTA, SIT TESOL, and Trinity Cert TESOL are preferred, but for financial reasons this is my first choice right now.

2. I understand that hiring season is primarily late August and into September, butis it feasible to find a job for the second semester, say towards december or january?

A little info about me: I have a BA in History, minor in Italian, I am borderline fluent, I have dual American/Italian citizenship.

Thanks in advance for any help!
