Very frustrating. Didn't want to take the very first offer (32K from AUA) before heading to BKK, but no other schools are responding to emails with resume and coverletter.
Is this par for the course for Thai schools to only consider applicants from within the country?
Being there means a lot. Logically it has to do with the available teacher pool. Can you imagine a school hiring from an Internet application and not from the long line of in-country prospects lining up every morning at the personnel office?
There are a lot of advertising websites out there.
It's pretty hit and miss. I was hired by a local government school via e-mail. I'm not sure that's the norm though outside international schools and universities.
Maybe somebody here knows of some openings.
it could be that there is more supply than demand at the moment though. Tough times in the west bring many to Thailands EFL shores.

Thanks Jonny and Russel for the advice. I will accept the AUA position and move up the latter as I see fit when I get there. As for Mr. Jones. You'll have to excuse his stupidity. He hasn't visited the states in quite some time. lol
AUA's not bad mate. Certainly will serve as a start.
"32K from AUA". Where in Thailand?
My mate was manager in Surat. He was getting 55. Had about 12-15 teaching hours a week.
AUA in Korat
I've had the same roblems. Applied all over and got replies, but nothing definite. Going to just apply in person as soon as I arrive, everybody says that is far more efficient.
Say it ain't so!...but no other schools are responding to emails with resume and cover letter...
