EPISODE SLICE #71: Advice to New Graduates – Teach Abroad

I’m going solo on today’s episode slice! Since I decided to cut down to one video a week, you might be seeing more of me on the site. What am I talking about on this episode? Why I recommend teaching English abroad. I talk about what you need in order to do it, benefits, good markets to teach abroad (more to come about this in a future episode), helpful sites, how it will impact you, and how it impacted me.

There’s so much that you can learn about yourself and the world while you’re living in another country. And, there’s so much that you can do with your experiences that you might not have even known about. Watch the video to find out more!

    Do it! I wish I had back when I started teaching. You will never regret going overseas, only not going.


    • Alexa Hart

      So true… I certainly don’t regret it!

    Hi Alexa,

    I was wondering if you could tell me a little about the differences between a good experience and bad experience with recruiters. What happened with Footprints that was different with from recruiters? Just so I can get an idea of what to expect.

    Thank you.

    • Alexa Hart

      Happy to expand, John. A good recruiter is someone who helps with the visa process (I had very little help), prepares the teacher for going abroad by familiarizing them with the country’s culture, how to act appropriately at work (and in general) without offending, and suggestions for how to act at the specific school based on feedback from the school’s administration.

      I have heard great feedback from other people who have used Footprints, but for me personally, I was unprepared for my teaching experience three years ago.
