Instituto Exclusivo has contacts with other language schools throughout Bolivia and South America and will do our best to help you find a job after finishing your TESOL certification. We are happy to assist all students in this process and will even help contacting schools if necessary.
Our job guidance service includes the following:
>> Guest Speakers
Guest speakers including graduates who have experience seeking work in Bolivia. This session will give you the opportunity to learn first hand what’s out there and tips on how to secure work.
>> Resume/CV writing
During the course, we will advise you on how to update and make the necessary amendments to your resume/CV in order to make it TEFL / TESOL oriented and appealing to your prospective employers. Often this can make a real difference since the appropriate layout and structure of resumes/CV’s can change a lot from country to country.
>> Interview Skills
We will give you all sorts of tips on interview dos and don’ts, so you can give a top performance in your future job interviews. Our course director will thoroughly inform you of what aspects of methodology and practice you need to be prepared for and will perform mock interviews with you.
>> Contacting former graduates
We keep in touch with INTESOL graduates and our database shows where they have taught and lived after their course. We will do our best to put you in touch with someone who has had first-hand experience in the country of your choice so you learn about the pluses and minuses of life and work there.
>> Resource Pack
A pack with useful information that you can use to start your search, including advice on job-hunting both in South America and around the world, and using the internet Job-search notice boards effectively to identify recently advertised jobs.
>> Job Guarantee
While we do not guarantee a job after the course, we make exhaustive efforts to find jobs/leads for all our graduates. There is a huge demand for language teachers worldwide and the chances of finding work after the course are excellent. INTESOL Bolivia gives you another big bonus: because INTESOL is a worldwide organization, we have an unparalleled network we can use to provide you with the latest information about job vacancies across the globe. If you want to teach or do volunteer work in a country or continent where there is an INTESOL Center, we can put you in touch with schools which often hire teachers or which are recruiting at that moment.
In addition to INTESOL’S efforts, you should make as much effort as possible to find work for yourself, by communicating directly with individual schools, presenting yourself well at interviews, and being patient and flexible.
Whether it be a long-term teaching future, or simply a “gap period”, experiencing another world, INTESOL Bolivia is the right place to start!
