    Looking for a teacher or two so I thought I'd visit the ajarn site and look at resumes. I've browsed there for jobs tons of times and seemed like a good board. I was surprised when I hit a link for someones resume.



    Posting premium job advertisements or viewing resumes requires the use of credits. However, you do not currently have enough credits to perform the operation you requested.

    Number of credits in your account: 0

    One credit is required for each resume you click on.

    Resumes sent by teachers (to your e-mail address) are still free to view.

    For details of the credits required to post job advertisements, please click here


    Please choose the credit pack you want to purchase
    # Name Cost of credit pack
    10 Credit Pack ฿1,800
    15 Credit Pack ฿2,700

    WTF!!! I have to pay 180 Baht for each resume I look at!! Cant see a lot of schools bothering to do that!



    Anyone looking for a uni job in the south east of Isaan Good uni BUT sat and sun are working days, mon tues are off. Decent workload, 13-18 hours, regular benefits, send a PM or resume. No scans, degrees, or anything yet. Prefer a paragraph. Prefer female as there may be a couple hours a week later on working with children under 4.

    oh… no wankers please

    You can post a free job ad that usually takes three working days to go online ,but whatever you'll write, your inbox is always full of those you excluded.

    Should you go that way delete those who don't fit in and block them. Otherwise, they'll send their stuff again and again.

    And please don't make the mistake to post your own phone number. Good luck finding suitable ones.

    expect drops ins too, they will turn up the very next day. Had success with making it so clear on the specific skill set required by the school.

    If I were you I would make a speedy update to what you need and what you will not accept. 225 guests are viewing the site right now so you may just the right person.

    Good luck with the search

    ^ ^^ thats exactly why I thought it would be nice to browse through the resumes at ajarn. I don't really want to place an ad and get a bunch of useless emails. But 180 baht to see each resume!!!!!! Porn sites are cheaper! :)

    Yes, good advice guys.

    Must have proper papers, degree transcripts, criminal check …. everything. If someone has all that, and isn't a wanker please drop me a line. It is a private uni so the OBEC (?) or whatever is not part of the game. Also must be used to Thailand, there is no coddling here, no one really speaks English. Your on your own, create a syllabus, get it approved, teach, don't see the boss till finals. All classrooms are quipped with air con, and broken projector screens and microphones that don't work. :)
    Once again females preferred because of the potential of teaching early development. 2-4 hours a week.

    Sounds like the perfect job for me in 10 years (save for the female part)

    @sirchai, ha ha - I had folks call me with thick African accents. One guy called the school directly, pestering people for days.

    Got fantastic applicants - NES, genuine pro teachers (unlike yours truly) with experience in Hong Kong and the USA. All wiling to relocate for 30,000 THB. One local NES had local references and a teachers' license!! No, they went for a 20 year old who brought a scateboard and his "high school diploma". then he had to sign in in a different book because he wasn't a teacher.

    Now, my employer hired a 66 y.o. and a different job description means no waiver was needed.

    Most of those top applicants were over 60.

    And probably not in dire need of the THB30K. What other reason(s), I wonder, could lead trained and experienced professionals to seek work on local shores?

    Well, TBH, I'm bitching, moaning and whining all the time. But a job is often part of a happy life.

    Without something to do, will one drink beer and surf the internet all day long? The big decision of the day being what to eat? (som tam or pad kimau)

    Agree. But a job that leads to moaning about the futility of it all seems self-defeating. Besides, beer and internet are only two of the more attractive options.
