That's what my quals will be when I complete Uni. I can get Practicum placement at IB schools probably fairly easily, and probably work in one just as easily after Uni. There are a lot of primary schools that offer IB in my local area so I am lucky.
Considering most of SE Asia not just BKK what are my chances of employment 1-2years out of uni and what kind of salary can I expect?
Any IB International School gurus on this site?
Is linguistics really a good specialty to have considering others have said International schools snub TEFLers?
You need more then that. You aren't qualified if you don't have a teaching license/qualification. You will need a PGCE or equivalent at the minimum, and QTS preferred. You will need at least 2 years post certification experience, and yes IB experience would greatly improve your marketability. Salaries depend on the school and region, but about $3,000USD across Asia (outside Japan) would be standard for an average IS. IS's won't accept ESL experience. It's better then nothing, but 2 years ESL teaching experience puts you in the same category as newbies with no experience. The only RSL experience that counts is ESL at a reputable IS, and post certification.
