One is at a college teaching English as a second language.
The second is an IB school. The IB school pays roughly twice as much as the college.
I want to try and eventually teach in Hong Kong or Macao as an ESL teacher. Will I be better positioned in 2 years to apply to public schools in Hong Kong or Macao or the NET program with 2 years of ESL instruction under my belt?
I have a CELTA as well as other teaching experience and qualifications.
I also plan to get a PGCE, so I will also be able to apply to private schools in Hong Kong or Macao that offer IB curriculum.
What would you all advise I do? Money in the short run is good, but I’m wondering if taking less money and the ESL experience is worth the sacrifice. I will make the money back if I get a position in Hong Kong or Macao.
