Has anyone had experience with the Kadiköy Maarif College in Istanbul?
I was just offered a position there and the contract almost seems too good to be true. $7000 US a month non taxable, a free 2 bedroom apartment, fully furnished (employee pays utilities), free round-trip airfare and airport pick up.
I am interested in going, but I have heard a lot of horror stories about these jobs in the middle east being scams. Does anyone have any advice for me on what I should be looking for to figure out if this is truly legit?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as this will be my first overseas contract.
I actually looked into this a while ago. That site they have for the working visa wants about $1000 to process a visa. I knew right then and there it was a scam, and although I did not fall for it, I sympathize for the people who do, because of the excitement they get from getting such a "prestigious job" with high pay and awesome benefits.
I emailed the "school" back telling them I knew this was a scam and they were not getting one dime of my money.
