The process of looking for a job in China is not only time consuming, it is daunting because you have no idea if the school's sales pitch is true. Having worked in a training centre that oversold, I was weary and sceptical of landing another ine of those!

Being recommended by a friend to Teaching Nomad was the best thing ever! My placement consultant, Lauren, was super involved at every process. What's also great about the agency is that they do their best to match you as closely as possible to what you want, in an area you desire and so forth!

They also have occasional job fairs that sets them apart. There you get to potentially be set up with an interview, meet-and-greet potential employers and get as much information as needed! That's where I managed to secure my next job and I am more than happy with the school!

Teaching Nomad is reputable, knows what they are doing and gives the best service!

What would you improve about this program?
The program doesn't need any improvement in my opinion. They have done a lot of work in understanding this market and needs analysis of teachers.

Lauren from Teaching Nomad connected to me for teaching opportunities in UAE on a Saturday morning January 5 2019, submitted our documents via email in the afternoon (mine and my wife's), scheduled the interview the next day Sunday afternoon, and in the evening signed the initial offer as couple teachers in a school in UAE! That was incredibly fast and I would like to commend Lauren for staying late at night to make sure we get a place for the interview. All these things and we didn't spend a cent for the process. Also, I find the website very helpful, it answers most of the concerns like about the schools, visa, benefits, and about the transition process of moving in a new country. Thank you teaching nomad for opening this amazing opportunity!

Ali did a wonderful job with providing me with information at every step and making sure I was feeling comfortable with the process. I wouldn't have received my job offer if it wasn't for Teaching Nomad, they made the process so much easier and I felt reassured in the schools I was applying to. The job that I received was from a government school and Ali always made sure my questions were answered and if I felt like something was not right, she would always be willing to provide me with more information.

I also took the TEFL course which was useful in some aspects as I did learn much about teaching but for me, the presentations and videos made the course as interactive as possible and for the price, it is a very good course.

I would definitely advise using Teaching Nomad to anyone who wants to teach in China. It will make the process so much easier.

Traveling Nomad has been nothing but wonderful to me and my husband. We worked with Mike and he was very quick, kind, and helpful. Any questions we had were answered quickly and many helpful resources were provided to us. We are now settled in ShangHai and we love it! The group we are working for is Kids Castle, so far they’ve been good. ShangHai is super clean, super beautiful, super safe and there is always loads to do.

I had Mike Ostrowski guide me through the Job hunt for 7 months, constantly providing plentiful - no, infact honestly abundant - help throughout this time frame by guiding me through the challenges, providing me with job opportunities over and over and simply being a great mentor and safe guard for a what otherwise would have been a much more worrisome and complicated journey.
From the bottom of my heart thank you to Mike, and the Organization for making this possible, and I wish all future participants all the best for their own journey, and perhaps luck to be matched up with Mike, because you truly do have an invaluable and irreplaceable employee at hands with Mike! All the best!
