When I first applied to teach overseas several years ago I went through Teach Away, an international teacher recruitment agency based out of Canada, and even though I didn’t get a position the first time, there was never any doubt that I would try again. The representatives at Teach Away were always professional. So, when I decided to seek employment overseas again, I went back to Teach Away’s website. They guided me every step of the way from the original email, through the application process, to the interview and with any questions I had after I secured a position. I didn’t pay any fees to Teach Away. I had to pay all of the cost associated with my paperwork, and cost incurred from traveling for my interviews but no company fees. I’ve spoken to many other teachers and they went through companies that they had to pay a membership fee to. I’ve never used them so I can’t speak on them. But, I have nothing but great things to say about Teach Away and my experience working with them. I even obtained my TEFL certification with their help through the University of Toronto TEFL online course.
When I received the following email over the summer, I was both surprised and honored!
I’m the content marketing intern here at Teach Away and I just wanted to reach out to you to give you a quick heads-up on a recent blog post we published on the Teach Away website featuring your blog!
I love how your blog follows your personal journey teaching in Doha, I thought that your blog would be a great addition to our list of 5 teacher blogs to get you excited about teaching abroad! I loved looking through all your stories, and the fact that you are a Teach Away alumni is even better!
Once again, I just wanted to contact you to let you know about this post, and to say thank you for being such a great representative for Teach Away during your journey abroad!’
When I decide to leave my current teaching position in Qatar, and pursue another overseas teaching position, I will be using Teach Away!
