Another way that we can help our graduates find their dream teaching job is via our close working relationship with some of the best recruitment companies in the TEFL field. The main advantage of following this route to employment is that the recruitment company takes care of much of the paperwork and you can arrange a job in your chosen country before you leave home. This hassle-free approach is particularly popular with those who have little or no experience of overseas travel and are new to the teaching world. The application and interview process is typically taken care of online and any required visas and work permits are usually arranged for you.
The other major benefit of using a recruitment company is that it won’t cost you a thing as all the fees are paid by the employers who use their services. Many teachers also choose to sign up with several different companies to ensure they have the widest range of positions to choose from. If the idea of finding a teaching job with few hassles and without leaving home appeals to you then it might be worth exploring the recruitment company option. No matter where you want to live and work around the world, at ITTT we have many ways to make it happen.
