In this section of your ESL job training, we’ll look at what goes into making a CV for a teaching job, and how you can make your own.

Getting your CV right is the first step towards landing your perfect ESL job overseas. It’s often the first thing employers will see about you, and can be the difference between getting an interview, and missing out.

There’s a lot of great information online detailing how to write a CV. There’s also a lot of helpful tools and CV building websites which you could use. However, these resources might not always be so relevant when applying for overseas teaching jobs. For example, if you’re entirely new to teaching, then most of your work experience will likely be unrelated to teaching. This means that writing a CV based heavily on your past positions might be less beneficial than detailing your personal skills and qualifications.

To help simplify things and get you on the right track, we’re sharing with you our tried and test CV template which has been used when applying for teaching jobs over Asia:
