    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    I trust jonny that you weren't encouraging that behaviour.

    It just could go a long way to explaining why there are now five Nigerians replacing the 5 farangs.

    ---Update---

    Anyway...there is probably material here for a new thread in the classroom.


    "What Should I do When Students Cheer When I enter the Classroom?

    I think it has legs.

    I just an email from a school that post jobs on Ajarn regulary, it wasn't just an automate response that someone reviewed my resume / CV etc. but apologized for being unable to consider me because of MOE (Ministry of Education) rules that don't allow the hiring of anyone over the age of 60, hmmmm..... really? anyone heard of this? New rule or what? Maybe that is why I get so few respones??

    Yes, that's the reason. You need to find a way 'diminish' the age factor in your resume. Many 60 and older find good jobs as teachers in Thailand. It's just a little more difficult.

    Undoubtedly you put more effort into your resume than this post...if not, the real reason may never be known to you...

    Ah, you mis unna tann me...

    If there actually is a MOE rule such as the one described by you...then you need to realize that MOE rules would be treated by Thai schools much in the same way traffic laws are dealt with by Thais on the roads...did you know there is a helmet law in Thailand?

    Thais don't pay much attention to rules...so if your resume reads like your first post then the age rule they cited is most likely nothing more than a convenient excuse whether that rule actually exists or not...

    ...but I've given you the benefit of the doubt and assumed that your resume reads much better than your post so...what I'm saying is whether or not such a rule exists matters not...and we responders know for a fact that 60+ teachers do exist in Thailand...so you should just keep plugging away until you find a school who values your experience rather than viewing it as a hindrance...

    ...and stop paying attention to the excuses that you hear from schools...chances are you will never be told the true reason as that is viewed as very impolite in Thai society...

    "I just received an email from a school that posts jobs on Ajarn.com regularly. It wasn't just an automated response indicating that somebody had reviewed my resume/CV, but was sent to apologize for not being able to consider me for the job because the Ministry of Education(MOE) has rules prohibiting the hiring of anyone over the age of 60."

    Perhaps you could give your resume/CV to one or two of your friends to peer review. There may be mistakes in it and/or there may be some things that don't make sense or are not relevant. Most people overlook their own mistakes when writing papers, etc. I've had friends look over my resumes and there is always something their eyes see that is worth editing.

    I totally agree. Downplay your weakness(age) and sell your strengths.
