Native English Speaker Looking For Work In Phnom Penh

Post by Zhivago451 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:52 pm

Hi everyone. I am a native English speaking self taught linguist. I am planning to move to Phnom Penh Cambodia in January of 2019 and I am looking for work. I do not have a degree of any kind nor a TEFL certificate. I do however have many years of experience in teaching English to foreign exchange students that I have befriended coming to my country; and I have experience as an interpreter. While I am not specifically looking for a job as an English Teacher, that is the job I would like more than anything. However I am open to any and all jobs so long as they pay decently enough. If anyone knows places that are hiring and looking for foreigners more specifically Native English speaking I would greatly appreciate and welcome any and all links, posts, and information on these places as I would like to set up a job for my arrival. Of course I plan to do a ton of searching myself once I arrive. Any advice or tips is appreciated. Thank you very much ahead of time and I look forward to hearing you all.

try to avoid mentioning your lack of certifications.
print a bunch of resume's and go to schools and ask to speak directly to the director of studies on the spot.
i doubt you will arrange anything remotely, but you should be able to get a job within a week or 2 by cold calling.
pay is normally around $1100-1200 p.m.
SE Asians are quite racist, and people of colour can find it a little difficult, otherwise should be easy.

Haha, what experience? Talking to foreigners? What the hell is a self taught linguist?

Jamie has experience teaching English words to bargirls I don't that qualifies him for a teaching job.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is a definite need for a sarcasm font.

His experiences with bargirls probably qualifies him as a cunnilinguist.

...and I have experience as an interpreter
Interpreter? Your post doesn't make clear what you actually interpret from and to? Judging by your written English grammar/punctuation skills, I assume you interpret from correct English into fcuked-up English.

Anyway, I'm all ears to know :)

Wrong country.
