Just in time for applying for schools in the southern hemisphere (in countries like Thailand) 5 Resume Pet Peeves from one of our own, a Global TESOL College Grad, who is always looking for great teachers!

Remember, when a job is advertised there are usually hundreds of responses - don't let yours go to the bottom of the pile by making some of the below mistakes!


►Not capitalizing the word ENGLISH (how can you teach it if you can't spell it?)

►The inability to use spellcheck (otherwise known as laziness)

►Not following directions (if asked not to send attachments, don't send attachments!)

►Lack of detail (years, months) on employment history (2003-2004 could be two years or two months)

►Unprofessional or too-comfortable language ("hey, how r u doin, got any jobs?")
