Do more students or teachers visit the site?
In the beginning the primary goal of this is going to be schools showing their job openings for teachers and people wanting to see the world. Eventually we will have a comprehensive database of English schools globally and we would love to share that list with students to help people get the most out of experiencing the language and the world.
Who finances the site? 
Currently the four of us are financing the site and everything that it takes to build and expand it. We are considering vetting and taking on a few shining sponsors in each field that would like to go above and beyond in helping everyone experience the world in a rewarding way.  
What is unique about the site?
The site is unique in that it allows you to find what you are actually seeking. Never having to dig through hundreds of jobs that you are not qualified for. All you have to do is browse and read what each school is seeking before reading specific ads. This ensures you only have to read through places that want to hire you.
What's most rewarding about the site?
Being teachers ourselves we find that this site is extremely helpful in giving us the correct information as well as advice that will make the process of relocating to a different country easier and smoother. When we first started our job search we couldn’t find the information we needed and we spent hours searching the internet. This site will provide everything that is vital for the process of relocating and starting your new life abroad.  
What new features will you be adding? 
The first area of the site is the job board and after we are planning to expand the site in four different sectors. The first expansion will be Visa advice, where we will provide you with information on what is necessary to apply for a visa for the country of your choice. We will update this FAQ page as soon as the next part of the expansion is in progress.  
What made you want to work abroad? 
 
We are all people who love travelling and experiencing different cultures, different people and different cities. It has always been our dream to travel the world and experience new things, however as with all things money is a necessity. This was our way of doing both. To travel the world while working is the solution. Life becomes an open ended adventure where you can explore everything while having a job that provides you with money and stability.  
Why did you choose teaching?  
 
When we started our job search teaching was not the career we were looking for. After searching for hours and hours and getting no closer to the outcome we wanted, we decided to broaden our search. Teaching English as a Second Language was something that was being advertised globally. It was the only thing that required nothing more than being a Native Speaker. We started our journey as TEFL certified teachers and discovered a whole new experience.  
Where is the best place to go for life and adventure? 
 
This questions has 1001 answers that simply lead to more questions. Who are you and what are you looking for. Are you looking for: 
Fast or Slow pace? 
City or Small town? 
Historical or Modern? 
Hot or Cold Climate? 
When you can answer these things it helps you drastically narrow down your prospects. We will soon be providing an advice page to help you make this choice easily and effectively to find the perfect spot on the globe for you. 
How do I post an ad?
Posting an ad has never been simpler. All you have to do is go to the bottom of the Schools or Recruiters pages and there is a post an ad now button. We also have an all inclusive page for teachers and businesses alike to post ads here.
What kind of ad should I post?
If you are an individual school that only advertises under one company name then you post as a school no matter how many branches you have. If you recruit teachers for multiple different companies then please post as a recruiter. Keeping these two separate ensures that everyone is easier to find and each teacher can find exactly what they are looking for.
How do I post a resume?
Posting a resume is so simple with our platform. Simply go to the Post Resume Page and follow the link and instructions. We will ask you basic questions like we ask the school to find out more about you to ensure the perfect school or recruiter finds you.
