TEFL jobs in Cambodia
Finding a job in Cambodia is best done after arriving in the country. You won’t see a huge amount of positions listed on online jobs boards, which isn’t a reflection of the demand for EFL teachers in the country – it’s simply the case that most schools don’t advertise online. Once in the country, start handing out your CV to language schools and you should be able to secure work easily. On arrival in Cambodia, buy a Business E visa which is valid for one month, and can be extended for up to a year at a time for around $300. Also bring plenty of printed passport photos.
Where to find work in Cambodia
A degree isn’t required to teach English in Cambodia, but you will find that the vast majority of jobs advertised online will ask for one. If you don’t have a degree, then by far your best bet for securing work is to apply for jobs after you arrive in the country. Most jobs are found in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, but there are opportunities to teach in rural parts of the country where you’d likely be the only Westerner for miles around, as well as plenty of voluntary positions in rural locations. The most common types of work available in Cambodia involve teaching young learners, positions with private language schools, and teaching business English.
