The economy in the United States and around the globe is facing a massive crisis due to the coronavirus outbreak. We are all fearful of our health, our jobs, our families, and our futures. It's scary stuff.
We believe that while times are tough and uncertain, those who prepare themselves now will best weather the storm and will be best prepared to hit the ground running once the world returns to some sense of normalcy.
Here are some points to remember if you are interested in teaching English online or in-person in the future:
Demand for English teachers online remains strong and will continue to remain strong. This is a viable way for you to earn money if the coronavirus and lockdowns continue in the U.S. and Europe.
Education is largely recession-proof - schools will continue, and people will invest in their education to improve their job prospects. This is especially true for English language training.
If you want to teach English abroad, take advantage of the downtime you have now to get certified, so you are prepared and ready when jobs open up in the future.
Your TEFL certification will never expire, and neither does your access to ITTT's lifetime job support. If you get TEFL certified now, you will be able to call on the resources you need to get a job teaching English abroad or online at any point in the future. It doesn't matter if it’s in one year, five years, ten years, or whenever you want to take the next step.
