I’m currently living and working as a career guidance counsellor in China and I could not recommend it enough; especially for those who want to travel and gain some valuable life and cultural experiences.
Working as a teacher abroad has many positives. The salaries for teachers abroad can be far better – particularly for newly qualified teachers who studied in Ireland. It can be difficult being at the bottom of the pay scale; and that is if you get a job in the first place!
Teaching overseas can give you the experience you need to get a job back home while earning a better wage than you would in Ireland. Along with that comes the travel experience – you also get Chinese holidays, Christmas etc.
This gives you the time and great opportunities to travel to different parts of the globe.
