Now's your chance to soak up 10 years of insider knowledge in one short podcast.

Even if you have already been an english teacher abroad, this session will help you learn how to discover the best job opportunities, negotiate better accommodations, earn higher pay and much more.

I was so excited to meet up with John Bursey while crashing at the Lotus Lodge, a sweet little Oasis of a hostel just outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia.

John has been teaching English all over the world for nearly 10 years, most recently in Cambodia.

In under 30 minutes John provides a ridiculous amount of hard earned knowledge and practical advice teaching you the essentials of not only getting a job teaching English, but how to find the best ones.

Seriously, give this show a listen. It will save you a tremendous amount of time on research, eliminate years of mistakes and guide you to the perfect job teaching english abroad, even if you have zero experience.
In this session you'll learn:

Why just getting started in the most important thing you can do
Where you can teach english abroad with no experience
How to get a teaching job in Cambodia within 2 weeks like John did
How to present yourself on your resume to increase your chances of finding work
