I work in a career services office, and a lot of students are interested in teaching English abroad for a year or two before they start their careers. Although we have books about it and such, I have no personal experience doing it, and I wanted to ask Dopers about their experiences.
When and where did you teach?
How did you find your teaching job(s)?
What sort of certification did you get, if any?
What were the biggest challenges you faced?
What were the best things about the experience?
How did the experience affect your job search when you came back to your home country?
