Very useful information. Sorcha has guided me through the entire process from info about the Middle East, to interview, contracts, and now I’m pleased to say I’ll be in Dubai as of this summer!
I just wanted to write to thank you so very much with the help and support you gave me in producing my CV.
Having been in my current job for 3 years, I was surprised to find how quickly CVs become so outdated. You gave me the support and guidance to completely re jig my CV and I am so pleased with the outcome. It wasn’t until I was helping a friend in the same situation that I realised how much I had learnt from you. I am now able to decipher what is relevant, up to date and useful to a prospective employer, and I feel my CV is a hundred times more succinct than it was. It has attracted so many more schools to contact me than I could have hoped for.
Thanks again Sorcha, really appreciate you sharing your knowledge with me.
Just wanted to let you know that I received an email from (a popular not-for-profit school in the Middle East) today letting me know that I am shortlisted for interview. Going to be Skype on the ***** I really can’t thank you enough for the help and support. I don’t think I would have been shortlisted without your vital CV tips. Never mind that I wouldn’t have even found the job in the first place. Last January on a train back to Essex after the Christmas hols, I stumbled across an Empowering Expats teachers. I was instantly inspired to take control of my teaching career but like most I had no idea what the UAE would be like. EET gave me all of the advice and confidence I needed to search out my ideal job. The 8 websites that were recommended gave me a fantastic starting point and I located my ideal job on the BSME site. Like most, my CV was a bit rusty and you went above and beyond to advise me on layout and details to highlight. I could not ask for more and am so very grateful for all of the help.
Sorcha, you have done a fantastic job in such a short space of time with your Facebook page and website. Your resources have really helped me in understanding how to actually make the most of applying for jobs overseas. You have covered all areas and have set up a platform for people to ask all the questions that someone might not necessarily find the answers to while searching other websites.
