Where Can I Get an English Teaching Job in Advance in Latin America?

By: Christie Koness

The countries of Central and South America are not well known for offering English teachers jobs in advance.  Employers in these countries typically prefer to meet English teachers face-to-face, interview, and hire them on the spot.  This process can understandably be slightly daunting for some ESL teachers who would like job security before they move their lives halfway or all the way around the world.  

If this sounds like you, don’t disregard Latin America entirely!  There are a few countries that sometimes offer opportunities to find work before being in the country.
