Here are the top 5 things you can do right now to improve your chances of getting an interview.

  • Use simple well organized formatting.  As part of your job you will more than likely be expected to prepare lesson materials, so it's important to show you can use a computer to produce well designed pages.
  • Include a professional looking photo.  Many schools in this part of the world want to know that you will be presentable to clients, parents and students.
  • Tailor your CV to a teaching job.  Highlight any and all teaching experience, training experience, and international experience you have.
  • List your education, skills and qualifications in a clear and concise manner.  Your educational background may be given more attention than your actual work experience.
