I am 20+ yrs experienced. What salary should I ask for?
Top of the salary scale for that particular school.
Which school ,any clues?
I'm in Vietnam is you have any questions?
The school in Hanoi which sounds like a multinational organisation is by far the best school in Vietnam. In terms of package, reputation and longevity, at least.
There are a number of ok school in Saigon but they're mostly for-profit schools. Not a deal breaker, perhaps, but do your research.
If you're a competent Maths & Physics with good references...you should be aiming for the top. Unless you're an awful teacher, in which case grab what you can.
Did you mean to quote me?
I'm already in Saigon at one of the average schools (It certainly isn't average though, it's an outstanding place to work and send my children too, we are paid very weel, great students, supportive management and well resourced)
There is one other school which is simalar and a few ok ones.
No, I didn't necessarily mean to quote you.
However, overall, what I said was what people think. HCMC has some cool schools (my buddy, in fact, is going to one) but was anything I said untrue?
It sounded like you were saying that there were only OK schools in HCMC, particularly the for profit schools (which I'm at), maybe I misinterpreted?
willow 78 can you give clues as to where you are at? is it the one Not Always mentioned.... or do you know this school at all?
Yes I am at that one.
This company eeyemjee has offered me a place but haven't told me anything about the school's name or location. Should I be warned about anything?
Willow 78 OH and I are both teachers and both thinking of applying to the school. Thoughts, tips dos and donts?!? Can( try ) to pm you ? I am new to all this...
I've sent you a message
Have you found a job yet?
