The EFL/ESL Job Search Handbook.
Parsons, Adelaide, Ed.
This handbook offers step-by-step advice to teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) for job searchers entering the job market and finding and accepting a job in the field. The goal is to find a job that matches the searcher's interests, skills, goals, and preparation with those of the employer. Topics include analysis of interests and skills, strategies for the job search, writing the resume and cover letter, the job interview, accepting the job, and suggestions for the first year on the job. Special discussions are included for those wishing to teach outside the United States and for Americans returning from overseas. Appendixes include an article on re-entering the U.S. job market by John Avery, description of desired characteristics of the ESL professional, and two brief papers on qualifications and opportunities for graduates. (Contains six references.) (NAV)
