How should a TEFL CV look?
A well-crafted TEFL CV is essential to landing your dream TEFL job. Here are some guidelines for perfecting your CV:
Contact info: make sure your name and contact details are included at the top of your CV so they’re easy to find.
Include a photo: use a photo of yourself that’s simple, professional and current. And don’t forget to smile!
Education and training: Include all your qualifications, starting from the most recent.
Work history: similar to above, list all your jobs starting with the most recent. If you have a lot of work history, we recommend only going back to around 10 years prior.
References: include the details of two references or “references available on request” at the bottom of your CV.
Other information: it’s a good idea to include any other skills and interests. Including your hobbies gives an insight into the kind or person you are.
Proofread: grammar mistakes and typos are unforgiveable on a TEFL CV. Don’t forget to proofread your CV and ask someone to read it for you to double-check.
