    I think it's a solid job. I'm also of the opinion or hope that they know what's its going to take to get good staff out there - money.

    North of BKK you see jobs from good schools 50-60. It's just not enough to reverse commute and to be under a heavy workload. Commute times could amount to three hrs per day.

    Can you move there? Yes, Rangsit area preferable to airport but it's still not BKK. Quiet for single life sure. But I'd not move anywhere until second year contract negotiated.

    Almost all jobs you walk into starting at 50k up are going to be a ton of work. For me, I dont mind the work as long as it's achievable. If it's just an endless stream of work, that's not good for students or your health.

    So Khun Sirchai, have you heard from them? I sent a package off as well yesterday. I emailed them initially for some clarification on the vague jobbiness of the ad, no reply.

    It would take every bit of 70k to get me out there daily from BKK. Not even touching on the workload.

    The job is super vague. One of the most peculiar ads I've seen in awhile. Big money, decent school - few requirements/ qualifications.

    I applied just to keep my resume sharp and up to date. Sort of a hobby, apply to all good jobs I can find - try to score an interview.

    Sarasass wanted me to go out there last year, begging me. Calling me 2x a day. I was literally telling them to fkuc off for 38.5 and they called back. The school is way outside BKK and the chain known to have "issues". Leaving a job for 39 I wasn't inclined to take 38.5 and the commute would suck ass so hard.

    I would do the commute for Concordia though.

    There are some inconvenient IB schools closer in on that side. Regent's, KIS, Ruamrudee, RAIS...

    Better paid than most jobs I see advertised but I’d need at least 70k to even consider working in Bangkok or the surrounding areas.

    From what I’ve heard sarasas is a factory line or rubber stamp education. It's where teachers end up, when they’ve been fired from all the other schools or they don’t have the qualifications to get a visa and WP.
