To be hired as an English Teacher in Thailand. I have heard about the discrimination against non western folks in securing a job as an English Teacher. They have this silly idea that a "farang" (Ang Mo) will be a better English teacher even if he may not come from a native English speaking country (Eg, France and Germany)
Its a bit discouraging but I have already prepared myself for this reality to haapen actually. So most probably I will need to activate my Plan B instead; Seting up my own little private tuition center here in Maesai or Chiang Mai. Starting a buisness is no joke as it involves more money and time. Moreover, I might need to work out my work permit by myself if I'm not employed by a school. Which is the one major reason I wished to get employed. To understand how to get that work permit first hand before I go on my own.
Anyway, I still have till end of the month to get a job. April will be tough as Songkran is in that month and I beleive the schools stop their hiring process during that period. May will be the new school term so I have less than 2 weeks before reality sets in.
