Hello fellow farangs!
I recently decided to teach in Thailand and have found a job offered by an agency called World Wide Teachers International Inc., which is currently recruiting 213 teachers. I was wondering whether anybody is familiar with this agency and whether it is a certified employment agency provisioned by Thailand’s Ministry of Education.
Also, upon reviewing the contract I noticed that the school name was left blank (to be determined upon my arrival), meaning that I won't have a spot until I arrive in Thailand. In my opinion this might provide the agency with leverage to adjust the contract to suit their needs once I arrive and, being new to the country, might leave me with no alternative but to accept the terms. However, this might be common practice by most agencies in Thailand or I might be completely wrong. Either way I need some advice?
Find the job when you arrive here. It is only really Korea (and maybe China) where it might be best to get the job in advance........due to accomodation costs / visa issues, of turing up in the country and looking yourself.

Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
You are right, disregard my farung comment.
As for the posts, thanks for the advice. It does seem very odd that they would be seeking 213 teachers all at once.
Don't use an agency. Just find a job yourself in a place you'd like to live.
I'm looking into going through them as well; no one seems to have any good information about this program, other than the guy who runs it.
