    School in Vietnam currently advertising in TES looking for attractive teachers with an inspiring voice ;-)

    – Be good-looking, have an accurate pronunciation and an inspiring voice

    – Love children and understand mental age

    – Be proactive and able to work under high pressure

    Many primary schools in the ME are staffed with young, single, female, blonde, blue eyed teachers for some apparent reason.

    Nothing new in this, its why you add a photo to your application.

    I've just found the ad. Looks like you only need to be good-looking for that particular position. There are two more positions and us ugly ones can apply for those.

    Already not got a great reputation as an employee, I can see why.

    Strangely, I can't find a single picture of the Headteacher, in any sort of 'Welcome to our school' bumf on the website. It's the first school I've seen without this which leads me to believe the headteacher is so unattractive that the owners keep him in a cellar, chained to the wall as to not ruin the beautiful image of the staff body.

    I'm actually not that bad to look at, but my voice is so horrifically uninspiring that I feel it would be disingenuous of me to apply for the position.

    Oh well, plenty more fish

    Accurate pronunciation is surely incredibly relative, an American, Australian, cockney and geordie would likely all consider their, very different, pronunciation of words to be accurate.

    Clicked on the link.
    They interviewed me last year and never got back to me with a decision.
    I guess now I know what the feedback would have been.... Not attractive enough!

    How long does it take to send someone an email saying "thanks but no thanks" after a face-to-face interview.

    What a poorly run operation

    I had reservations and that just reinforced them.
    Same thing happened with another school... That I also had reservations about.

    im heading straight for the advertisement now to see what they say. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder, so I'd love to apply for the job and give them my very over sized rose tinted glasses to put on.
