How can I find a job teaching adults?

Teaching adults is often a highly desirable job in English Language Teaching, and as such, the jobs can be competitive in many areas of the world, as with universities and test preparation. That said, there are many ways to find jobs teaching adults. The first thing to keep in mind is that networking can always bring up good opportunities – go to networking events, expatriate events, or teaching conferences. You can also look for job opportunities through agencies, through job  boards, and through Facebook or social media groups.

Keep in mind however that many language centers and educational institutions have a range of classes with lots of different levels and age groups, so it’s becoming increasingly rare to find a job where you will only teach one age range of students. Test preparation used to be a field in which most learners would be adults or young adults, but recently, especially in the Asian context, test takers are not confined to adult learners.
