In Response To: MBA equipped person seeking an opportunity in Chin (Nicholas)

Traditionally,. many roles in Asia only required 'a degree in something'. But many more are now asking for a TEFL certificate.
To teach a specific type of English (e.g., Nursing, Air traffic, Business), it is usually good to have experience in that area; you do have that, but as a specialist type of language the employer will want to be more sure that you know what you are going, and it is well-known that 'knowing a lot about something' is not the same as being able to teach it.

So a Trinity CertTESOL or Cambridge CELTA would be a good start, and then perhaps a one-semester contract in a general teaching role in China, say at a University, would get you networking and used to the surroundings.

There are also these courses (the second one being and actual certificate) that might help.
