No matter where you are in your English teaching career — whether you’re just starting out or an experienced pro — you know the importance of networking and support when it comes to job searching. To provide this, Bridge helps you with the process of getting a teaching job from start to finish. From your TEFL course to connecting you with global employers abroad and online, learn about how Bridge job resources can help you get the teaching job you want.
Bridge Job Advising Module
Bridge job support starts before you even graduate from your TEFL/TESOL course. Within all Bridge courses, you’ll complete a Job Advising component, which includes the following modules:
|Module 1||Finding a Job, Downloading Your Certificate, and Updating Your Resume|
|Module 2||Stay Connected with Bridge!|
|Module 3||TEFL/TESOL Professional Development Opportunities|
The resources in these modules are designed to make the process of finding TEFL jobs or advancing in the field as clear and easy as possible for our graduates. New teachers will learn how to improve their resumes, find and apply to TEFL jobs, and ace the job interview to get their dream teaching job. If you’re already teaching, you’ll find helpful information on continuing professional development, recommended TESOL organizations to join, and teaching resources you can use in your own classroom. You’ll also learn how to take advantage of Bridge’s job placement services and connect to our community of TEFL teachers and schools worldwide.
The Bridge TEFL Job Board – Resources and Open Positions
The Bridge TEFL Job Board is where global TEFL/TESOL schools and online tutoring companies post open positions you can apply to directly. Once you’re qualified, the Job Board is the place to go to apply to jobs directly. Search by location, including online, or simply view the most recent postings. Even before you graduate, the Job Board is a helpful tool to browse positions and get a feel for requirements, salary, and benefits for various teaching locations worldwide.
Bridge Teacher Portfolios – Showcase Your Skills and Let Schools Find You!
Another resource service available on the Bridge Job Board is the option to create a Teacher Portfolio. By registering and creating your Portfolio, you can easily showcase your TEFL/TESOL certification and other qualifications to schools and recruiters, both abroad and online. Share your Portfolio with schools you find on the job board, or make your Portfolio visible to schools so they can reach out to you!
