I finally received a job offer and have a contract sitting in my email. I generally feel good about the job, however I have not yet gotten a response (email) from a teacher that currently works there.
From what I understand it's generally a good idea to take what recruiters say with a grain of salt, regardless of how nice they sound on the phone.
I have not felt anything fishy about this particular job, however I think I would have trouble accepting it without hearing something from another teacher.
I just want a job! I have all of my documents ready and I do not have anything else I'm currently obligated to fulfill where I am at. Although I also do not want to be too hasty and jump on the first opportunity I've been given without weighing things a bit. So as of right now I'm just a bit disappointed. I suppose it's time to start emailing a few more recruiters.
Just venting and not looking for any particular feedback, but...
would you ever take a job teaching English in Korea without prior knowledge from someone that currently or formerly worked there?
