Top 5 ESL Teaching Resume Tips

ESL Teaching Resume Tips
I've had a couple people emailing me in the last weeks asking for some feedback on their resumes and it was hard to help them because they didn't even really have the basic things right. Here are my top 5 tips for your ESL teaching resume.

1. 1 page! Nobody wants to read more than this.

2. Relevant things only. Nobody cares what your BA was in it's not something directly related to English, TESOL or education.

3. Don't list references. This is a big waste of space and it's assumed that you'll have these.

4. Don't mention the obvious. For example, you know how to use a computer or the Internet. Doesn't everybody these days?

5. The picture. Get one professionally done! This is the most important thing.
