    Thinking of gettnig a job... where to start?

    Hi all...

    I am thinking of getting a job, but don't have any idea where to start looking.

    I'm from the US, only speak English, have an AAS degree (2 year) from a community college, have experience in retail, and admin assisstant/secretarial/data entry type stuff. I've done some free lance work here in HK, but haven't held a "real" job in nearly 5 years (since my dd was born.)

    I've looked at a lot of the international schools' websites, the US consulate, and a couple of other companies, but I don't seem to have the qualifications or experience they are looking for. I don't necessarily want a full time job, but 4-5 hours a day would be great.

    Any ideas???

    Thanks!
    All the best,
    Katie

    It's easy enough to get a job as a teaching assistant at an International School. Otherwise, get a TESOL cert. Plenty of online providers and you'd land a teaching stint quite easily especially if you have the right look.

    i agree. teaching a kindergarten, or being a receptionist are great jobs for moms =)
