I'm Yasmin Shakwat. An English teacher from India. I wanted to try my luck in another country and started applying for quite a lot of different jobs to see what I could get. I didn't know that an English level certificate was a good idea in a job application but when they called me from the school for an interview it seemed like they were already going to offer me a job from the start.
Hi Chris! I just wanted to write and say thanks for the advice! The test was fun actually, and it's definitely made a difference! I was getting so frustrated with the 'native speakers' only thing. It was only 34$ so I figured I had nothing to lose. I just think it helps the employers sort the serious people from the time wasters, and gives them an extra reason to interview you. If you do a good interview you can easily get a job here.
I accepted the job's offer. I'm really happy, satisfied, pleased and thankful to you Mr Chris and to English Jobs Turkey for your involvement and help, and I hope, if you live there in Turkey, to meet you and thank you in person.
