Graduate? Now What? Teach English Abroad!
Making the transition from student to graduate can seem quite daunting! The promise of a graduate job can seem like a distant whisper, there are so many graduates gunning for that same position! So, how do you get ahead of the game?
F&Y Consultant have the answer!
It may seem harder at this present time for graduates to get a job, employers are looking for more due to the increased amount in the flow of graduates coming forward. Experience is a key aspect needed to obtain a job, how do you get experience if you have spent the last 3 years studying? Many employers are starting to look for life experiences too, to show how you solve problems, integrate with others and show your level of maturity. If all this is sounding familiar then you must hear about what TEFL (Teaching English As A Foreign Language) can do for you!
Getting TEFL certified will be your ticket to travel the world! Better more, you will be getting paid!
Sound any good? Check out our 5 reasons why TEFL is the perfect choice for graduates!
1.The Aim Of Your Travel
Save money to slowly start paying off your university debts. The best place to begin your TEFL journey as a graduate is in China. This is because you will be receiving a higher than average wage as a foreign teacher. Furthermore, the cost of living in China is so low that it will be impossible to spend more than half of your monthly wage. Why? This is where it gets really exciting, F&Y can ensure your accommodation; and in most cases utilities, are covered! The incentive to explore China’s great wonders and immerse oneself in a new and exciting culture, not forgetting the food, speaks for itself really!
2.Now Is The Time!
If you take a moment to think about the perfect position you are in right now, you have just finished studying, you do not have the commitment of a job yet, you do not have a mortgage to pay off, perhaps you do not have any family commitments anchoring you to one place, in simple terms you are free! Free to choose what you would like to do for the next 12 months. The future holds responsibility, commitment to a long-term job, perhaps family commitments. However, as of yet, nothing is holding you back to travel while you work. Now is the time to make those memories you will cherish and share with others in the distant future. Why not share this experience with the life-long friends you have made in University!F&Y can ensure couples or groups are able to go to China together, sharing accommodation, and in most cases, teaching in the same school! We tailor ourselves to suit you !
3.This Is A Real job!
The opportunities for a TEFL job are vast! This is more that can be said for other industries! If you do not have teaching experience you need not worry! As long as you are a graduate and a native English speaker then you pretty much have the job! This is certainly the case in China, due to the enormous growing economy, China has now become the place for TEFL teachers, along with an ever-increasing amount of jobs available. In simpler terms the demand is huge! Even if your career plan is not in teaching, TEFL can provide you with the vital life experiences to take with you to any other job.
4.One more certificate to add to your CV
Do not be put off at the thought of more studying! TEFL can be completed online in a 120 hour course, or if you choose, you can study face to face with others. The course is tailored to work at your pace and there is help and guidance at each step. Becoming TEFL certified will show employers you can demonstrate public speaking, presentation and oral skills, working to set times to achieve a target, creativity, ability to use digital platforms to achieve success and the drive to achieve your best!
Cultural experiences reveal many transferable skills in the workplace. The experience of integrating yourself in an unknown culture and getting your point across is a skill many only dream of! The skill to take leadership of a class and transfer learning techniques to achieve targets is a skill demonstrated by leaders. The skill to organise one’s life around a totally unique schedule while showing consistency is the skill shown by many with years of experience in the workplace. These are the skills employers are looking for in graduates.
