…Who is an excellent teacher when they first begin? Picking up and moving to a foreign country to start a job you’ve never done before is daunting, and it’s normal to be worried about it. There’s no such thing as a stupid question, after all.[/quote]
I was referring to subpar vs par. Excellency at Hess is structurally impossible, like McDonald’s serving KGB, Bravo, etc.
In the above Phone/Skype interview with Hess… any help? page 5, Hess claims 4 intakes of 250 vacancies/yr. This mirrors GuyinTW’s claim of ~500 Hessians, with +50% desertion/yr.
250 = 3,000 in 12yrs; TEIT has 3,600+ threads. Should every Hess applicant have their own thread???
At least 5 started “Hess interview” threads; the other +99% of applicants felt they didn’t need to. Which is “normal”?
What if a Translation forum had 45% of threads about President TSGI? Or Restaurants with 45% McDonald’s threads?
Public internet is ~20yo. In the previous 150,000yrs, people either dealt with their migration & “job” worries, or just stayed put. Sweating at home about Skype interviews for [strike]McDonald’s[/strike] Hess jobs? Asking & expecting online strangers to address their worries for free? Not historically normal.
If a McHess interview is worrisome, then the classroom, work, mgmt, & much of TW will overwhelm. The archives show they’ll likely be milked of money, time, & peace of mind, “overly criticized”, & axed at least once – and not by me.
“Serial feedback askers” do little research (despite claims), start new threads, ignore old ones, rarely post outside their own threads, & provide little feedback to others. They use Forumosa for free feedback – from vets.
TEIT is the most valuable TEFL library in TW. 1000+ individuals have left records of their job trajectories. Ignore at your own risk. Asking an old question provides 0-5 answers; “stupid”, imo, when the library contains 50-100+.
Asking takes minutes, but limits ‘knowledge’ to given answers; research exposes other answers & future problems.
Asking = passively expect others to teach you; research = teach yourself. Which is better for keeping a teaching job in TW?
No free lunch. Read, lurk, & learn… or don’t, & pay later.
Too lazy to spend +24hrs to research a new job in a foreign country for +1 yr? Sounds “stupid” to me.
Either toughen up & learn how to be resourceful, or don’t come at all.
No “stupid questions”? Then you must think no TW employer has ever asked one.
