What we are going to do is run a job fair in our Facebook groups for jobs. Again, only in our Facebook group for jobs, not the one for reviews. As a reminder it is the one here:
Since this will be our first run, We might not get it 100% perfect, but we are willing to try. We will see how this goes and then determine if we’ll do another one the same way, make some adjustments, or scrap the idea altogether.
Okay, let’s take a look at the way this will work along with what is expected of job seekers and those who are looking for teachers. Yes, we also allow for those teachers who are using referral links to join in.

4. Do you want to teach adults, children, or both?
5. Do you have experience? No need to write a full resume. Just include a bit of background information.
6. The hours you want to work and your time zone. A link to WorldTimeBuddy would be best.
7. The hours per week that you can work.
8. Anything else that you might find to be useful for someone trying to line you up with a new job.
