Post-graduation is one of the best opportunities to leave your current place and head overseas to teach for a year (or two, or ten). It's easy to feel intimidated, though, by the idea of looking for a job on another continent, especially if you don't have much previous teaching experience.
Fortunately, there are tons of schools and organizations out there looking for people just like you: armed with a college degree, lots of energy, and a passion for engaging with a global community. From South Africa to the South Pacific, you can find a classroom and culture that matches what you're looking for.
Before you start packing your bags, though, you should make sure to check the requirements of your country or program of choice. Most (though not all!) of these jobs require a TEFL or equivalent certification, while some schools want you to have an education degree. Some countries, including China and South Korea, require teachers to have specific certifications before they're allowed to work there on an official basis.
If you don't have a certification, don't panic. There are plenty of ways to get certified, either through local classes, your program provider, or even online, so you can plan ahead and get that done before your departure date.
Now that the paperwork is out of the way, here are just a few of the great teaching opportunities waiting for you this year:
