Before you can start applying to jobs, you’ll need to decide where you’d like to teach. You’ve got plenty of options worldwide! The Bridge Job Board has resources for this stage of your job search, as you research what it’s like to teach in the countries around the globe.
We offer free TEFL eBooks for different stages of the teaching journey, including deciding where to teach and finding a TEFL job.
This guide will help you find the teaching location that’s the best fit for your preferences, qualifications, and goals. You’ll find articles related to choosing a teaching destination as well as tips.
If you know where you’d like to teach, this eBook can help you take the next steps. From preparing your resume, to vetting schools abroad, and acing the job interview, this guide provides expert advice for job seekers on getting hired as an EFL teacher abroad.

Access to Hundreds of Jobs on the Bridge Job Board
Our newly updated Bridge Job Board is where global TEFL schools and recruiters post open positions you can apply to directly. Just start browsing, by entering a location (including online) or filter your search by criteria such as job type or contract length to narrow down the results.
Register as a teacher on the Job Board for even more benefits, and when you see a job you like, save it as a “favorite” to return to later in the Teacher Portal, where you can apply directly with your teacher portfolio.
Teacher Portfolios to Showcase your Qualifications
Registered teachers on the Job Board can create a Teacher Portfolio. A Teacher Portfolio is a way to showcase your Bridge TEFL/TESOL certification and other qualifications to schools and recruiters looking for qualified teachers. Include a professional picture, your TEFL certificate and other certifications or degrees, a summary of your teaching experience, your resume, and more.
Your Teacher Portfolio makes it easy to apply to schools you find on the job board, or you can choose to make your Portfolio visible to schools, so they can find you!
