So you have decided that you want to be an ESL educator. Fantastic! The next enquiry you’re probably asking of yourself is if you should use an ESL recruiter or if you should try and look for a job yourself.
There are constantly two sides to every coin. Same way there are good placement organizations out there, it’s just as easy to catch bad placement organizations.
There is also a lot of propaganda on the web about what recruiters essentially do, how they make a living, and how their services are going to benefit you. ESL teaching forums, and job boards for example, are widespread with stories concerning trust-related and recruiter accountability issues. Don’t believe all the things that you read, though.
A specialized agency does not hold a percentage of a teacher’s salary. A specialized agency charges the school and not the teacher.
