Teaching in Phan Thiet or Quy Nhon

by Chris
(Rochester, New York)

I will be moving to Vietnam in Mid-February 2011.

I am a 28 year old American male with a college degree, one year of teaching experience in South Korea, and a 120 hour TESOL course with reviewed teaching practicum. Looking to secure a full time teaching position in Phan Thiet or Quy Nhon.

What do you believe the job market in like in those cities? Would you recommend any other smaller coastal cities? Possibly ones with Universities.

Any insight and or school contact information would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Best regards,

You'll land almost any available job you want. You have decided to choose 2 cities in Vietnam with low population and high interest from budding English Teachers.

Most teachers in the Universities and private schools head hunt out of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Teachers in Hanoi and HCMC consider a job offer from those 2 cities as a promotion.

So do the Vietnamese. They want teachers who have already worked a few years in Vietnam.

The only contact information you need is. Walk into the office of the recruiting staff in a nice suit and hand them your resume with a smile. I would do you a disservice to give you an email address.

Sorry to sound so down. If you feel that there is something about one of these cities that sits funny with you then you are meant to go anyway. Something will happen along the way and it might mean a job or no job.

It will be something good, though. Sorry. I am a big believer in taking risks. You won't die if you do this and it sounds like you just might no matter what I say.

Rach Gia, and Ha Tien
by: Chris

Thank you for your reply.
If I base myself in HCMC, and take 2-3 day trips to Phan Thiet and Quy Nhon, introduce myself in person to some of the Universities in those cities- Do you believe I have a chance of landing a job?
In addition to those cities, do you believe Rach Gia, and or Ha Tien are nice places to live and teach?

Thank you again. Your insight is very helpful!
Best regards,
