This time last year I was job hunting. I really wanted to work in Spain but it seemed that all the adverts I found required a minimum of 2 years’ experience. I had only completed my 140-hour Online TEFL course with i-to-i a few weeks before so it seemed that I would have to rethink. I decided to apply for other jobs in Europe and revisit the Spain dream in a couple of years.
I started applying for jobs elsewhere when I received 2 different emails from schools I had applied for telling me about Spainwise, It sounded ideal. All those language schools under one roof. Surely it was exactly where I wanted to be. However, I was sceptical. Some of the schools on the short list were ones I had applied to already and they had turned me down due to lack of experience but I couldn’t help thinking things might be different if I could speak to them face to face.
After a couple of days of mulling it over I decided it was better to speculate to accumulate. If I didn’t go I would regret it and think about what might have been. Plus, even if I didn’t get a job, I could maybe make some contacts and the seminars looked interesting so I decided to book my tickets.
