My Experience with Teaching Nomad

I was initially leery about using an agency to help place me in China but the support and resources I received were excellent. In the end, "your success is their success". The advice and feedback was very helpful. Also, the TEFL option I used through the provider was easy to use and progress to completion. It has also proven very useful in my new environment. The follow-up support after placement has also been very appreciated.

How can this program be improved?
Obtaining the Visa was done in coordination with the local staff at the school. It was complicated because the Visa issuing process varies from country to country, I was basically on my own to figure it out. It took many months of research, calls, visits to consular and 3rd party agencies before it was complete. This is in part due to the fact the Chinese government has recently changed their processes.

Teaching Nomad Assistance

Since making my decision to teach abroad the recruiter that has been assigned to me worked diligently to answer my questions and also locate positions that would align with my skill sets. Ali which is my recruiter name did not have problem with me constantly calling or emailing her to help me with my nervousness and confusion that dealt with picking the right positions to apply for and also helping me prep for an interview. I am really excited that I decided to work through them for this process.

I just want to say I am very happy with the school that I have joined. Teaching Nomad also need to be mentioned here and they helped to make the move out her as painless as possible. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of taking up work in China. Sophia has been very helpful and has checked in on a number of occasions to see how things are going. They also provided some useful tips on life in China and what to expect. Reliable people and nothing dodgy at all. Top service guys keep up there good work.

Inspiring Support!

I am extremely pleased with the level and type of support provided from start to finish from my Teaching Nomad recruiter Ali Jaramillo. She was exceptional and I immediately felt comfortable and motivated from the first interaction and interview. She set everything up for me after listening to my preferences, explained everything, provided resources, answered every question I had along the way, and continued to follow up in a friendly and encouraging manner throughout the entire recruiting process while I interviewed from overseas. I received an offer within a month from a company, and I am very grateful to start a new adventure. I am forever thankful I found the link to the Teaching Nomad site on the Peace Corps RPCV job portal, it honestly changed the course of my life. No strings attached, free support but service that is priceless. Some things that are too good are most definitely true. Thanks again!

Making distance not seem distant!

Teaching Nomad placement consultant, Moira, has been nothing but supportive and efficient! With her leave of absence, I thought that my placement might take slightly longer - sure, I was wrong! Not long after her return, Moira had sent out my profile to potential schools and I received interviews, all with good responses! This made me extremely happy! I didn't know which option would be best for me, and that's where Moira had helped me out, again. Teaching Nomad certainly provides you with the BEST consultants who you can rely on for a stress-free process! This is my first job oversees, in China, and I am ecstatic to have this opportunity in such short time. Thank you teaching Nomad - THANK YOU, Moira!!! :)

Thank You!

Teaching Nomad has been amazing in helping me secure an amazing school in Shanghai. They were supported and answered my questions in a timely manner. I've been in Korea for close to 6 years and I can say that this has been one of the best recruiting agencies that I've used. Ollie was great and provided really useful information. One thing I do recommend is starting your paper work early! The process is different for each country but it does take some time!

Nomad is helping make my dreams come true

I just received my flight itinerary and orientation material today for my first contract in China. I got in contact with Oliver almost a year ago now. He was quick to set me up with interviews, but I got a surprise offer to live in Bermuda for a few months so we didnt get far into the process. When I explained I still wanted to come to China but push back about a 7 months he was quick to help. He got in contact with all the companies and helped me explain my situation so the offers would still be there. About 5 months later, without prompt, I got an email from him checking on me and asking if we were going to stick with the same timeline. I told him yes and within a day or two had probably almost 10 interviews set up. I picked my company and he has been sending me emails, checking on me, and supporting me through the entire process. Oliver and Teaching Nomad had made the transition effortless. Now as I sit on my train through Poland, looking over my flight and hotel schedules I can't help but be thankful to them for helping my dreams of work and travel coming to life.

Thanks Teaching Nomad

Thanks to Teaching Nomad I was able to find a school that is perfect for me! I'm working on getting a visa now and they have been so helpful in helping get all my documents ready and answering questions I have. Moira McNally is great and helps me feel reassured when I feel lost. She went through everything at the beginning with me and has been able to explain things in a way that isn't intimidating or too scary.

Thank you Teaching Nomad

Honestly, Teaching Nomad and their staff are great at what they do. They helped me find, apply and successfully take multiple interviews to get offered a job in China over the course of 2-3 weeks. Super quick, I could not believe it. They are with you all along the way as well, any questions you name it, even help with interview preparation. I was really stuck where I was before, not to mention stresses. Teaching Nomad really helped me out.

O for Awesome Nomad

I came across this website on Google and thought of giving it a go. After I signed up it didn't take long until I got an email for an interview with one of their recruiters Moira. She was very awesome through out the job hunt making sure it was a smooth ride. Within days I received job interviews from schools and I have recently accepted a teaching job offer from China. For anyone who is thinking of teaching overseas I highly recommend Nomad and hopefully you get Moira as an agent she was O for Awesome (Kiwi joke). And even if you got the job they will still continue to help with your visa process and offering important informations making sure your teaching journey overseas is an unforgettable experience. Any Kiwis and everyone out there who is keen to teach overseas email or contact Nomad and there awesome staff such as Moira. Thank you heaps Nomad and Moira for your efforts and hard work. 😊❤👍👌

Best Recruiting Service Ever.

After previous experiences, I tried Nomad. I noticed the plethora of consistently great reviews, and mine is no different. Within a week I had 7 job interviews set up after the initial interview with my recruiter, Moira. She was absolutely amazing in getting so many great prospects in so little time. Now I'm a week away from leaving for my job in Taiwan. This couldn't have gone any better. This company is professional, kind and makes you feel wanted. Once again, no wonder they're the highest reviewed. Thanks Nomad and thanks Moira.

My Great Experience With Teaching Nomad

After leaving my previous agency due to lack of communication and uncertainty throughout the process .I have been positively surprised by the services Teaching Nomad and ,specifically, the wonderful Moira have given to me. My interview with Moira was great as she was able to gather up what kind of position would be right for me and soon after this interview, she had sent me suitable offers. After the interview Moira had sent me very frequent follow up emails and would always be willing to help often with whatever concerned me regardless of how big or little my questions were. Throughout the process with Teach Nomad I have felt nothing but greater confidence in my opportunity to teach in China because of how professional and well organised this recruitment agency has been

Amazing!

Teaching Nomad is a greeeaaat resource and company to utilize when looking for teaching positions overseas. After my profile was complete, Ashley started emailing job offers for my preferred cities; once she submitted my information, I received emails within hours. She's efficient when answering my questions, sending jobs, following up after interviews, and she provided useful information immediately after I accepted my position. Through the whole process, Ashley has been helpful & patient :). Teaching Nomad is truly great at what they do.

Beyond Happy with Teaching Nomad

Using Teaching Nomad was the biggest help. The whole process of finding a teaching position was simplified. Moira helped me through every step of the way. She was 12 hours ahead but was always so prompt with responses. I was also able to contact her easily via Skype or email. Moira continuously offered excellent advice and was always following up making sure all my questions were answered. She was very knowledgeable about different locations in China and helped me find a good fit for myself. She was great at accommodating my needs! There was never a hassle or stressful moment using Teaching Nomad. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Such a painless process

As soon as I got my documents to Ashley, I had job interviews. I had opportunities in multiple cities in China within the week. It all happened so fast. If you're wanting to teach overseas, they'll find you a home. And every time during the process I had a question, I could email Ashley and she'd get back to me within a few hours, or sooner, as long as you attempted communication during the Chinese working day. I feel confident about my new position, and I don't have any fears about living in Asia for the first time. I'm very happy I decided to go with TeachingNomad.
