Moving to / Teaching in Cambodia?

Post by jbusick » Sat Feb 09, 2019 9:26 am

Hello everyone,
I am trying to move to Cambodia from USA. Any advice on finding employment without being there? Online keeps saying you need to be in country to apply for positions,
but that sounds intense if I can't find one. It would start as a teacher and do some NGO work as well. Is it easy enough to find work when you get there?
Thanks--any advice and connection help :)

Yes, this is because Cambodian businesses don't really do email and they don't want to waste time corresponding with prospective teachers who may or may not ever show up in the country. Also, appearance is really fucking important to them. They're not going to hire you sight unseen.

have you been to Cambodia before?
bring at least $5,000 to last ya 6 months
get the $35 ordinary visa on arrival
dont burn any bridges.....Cambodia is NOT for everyone
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST
