    The crappest job on ajarn thread

    I'll start the bidding:

    This one is to recruit a native speaker to start in less than a month from now, so the school is clearly well prepared. The school is seeking the type of person who needs clues to know where the province it is located in is (repeated later in the advert for those who forgot by the time they read that far). Women are not wanted, and a degree in computers (you know, the type of degree that programmers back in the UK earning 50k GBP per year have) is required.

    A splendid salary of 2900 GBP per year is on offer. Oh, and the job title required to be stated as the email subject is completely different to the job title stated on the advert, because the author fell asleep whilst writing the advert and forgot the previously used job title upon writing the second half.

    I think the repeated reminder re location may be due the trat -vs- trang mix up's.

    trat is a nice town. rarely see adds for work there..

    One would hope that someone with a degree would have what it takes to know that, or at least get the clues the first time.

    Trat would be a useful location going by the job spec
    - School offers Visa and Passport expenses
    No mention of a work permit, so the "visa and passport expenses" refers to monthly trips over the nearby Cambodian border?

    Our next contender is looking for a German teacher, but for some reason recognises several Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificates

    It is definitely part time. This is stated before and after the job title in case the applicant is cross-eyed.

    The salary on offer for our Bavarian Isaanite is a generous five large bottles of beer chang per hour. It's URGENT!!! because the current post holder habitually consumes his entire liquid salary before work rather than afterwards.

    So the first job is for a computer teacher and they want someone with a degree in computing... and you think that's a bad thing Smeg?

    If they didn't request someone with a computing degree you'd be complaining about that!

    I think it's more the qualifications required vs. salary quota that seems a bit bizarre ;-) After all even Thai teachers earn more than that, and like stated, what computer geek with a uni degree would consider making a teaching degree to work for 15k bht per month ^^

    None, but if they advertised for a computer teacher and stated any BA will do, Smeg would be starting a thread about how fuxed up the edu system is here - they want a computer teacher but are happy to hire anyone with a degree in sewing and dress making.

    For the most part - 'No'.

    The numerous volunteers, the retirees with who have x times their salary in pensions coming in... etc - 'Yes'.

    Mind you, I think I've read a few bits from yourself about being delighted at being able to give up teaching at one point... so as one of those types, I wouldn't expect you to understand.

    40 hour week, teaching up to 60 kids for 30k and pay for your own visa and work permit?!!? No wonder they are looking for three!

    Full Time Full-time teachers

    Level: primary and kindergarten, aged 4-12
    Working hours: 7.30am-4.30pm, Mon-Fri

    House allowance: No (we help you to find a good accommodation)
    Contract start: 1 November 2008 – 28 February 2009

    For more information, please contact directly to
    Tom E-mail address: bls_phuket[at]yahoo.co.uk Tel:
    I do wonder why these schools so often use the "You you rich farang you pay for own work permit and visa we thai don't pay for you to stay in our perfect land you pay for that honour yourself!" bit as part of selling the role to applicants. Or are they simply out to prove how cash-starved they are?

    What kind of sorry ass muthafucka would take that job?


    There's plenty out there sitting on some barstool in a ho bar pondering their future.
