If you are interested in working in Ecuador after the course, we can help you find a teaching position.  Obviously, we cannot guarantee job placement. That said, we have an excellent record in assisting our graduates to find work if they are motivated to start or continue their teaching career in Ecuador. In fact, we have been able to find a position for all graduates that have solicited our services and participated fully in the process.

One resource we offer is a list of potential employers located all over Ecuador with information about each institution that you can access if you indicate you are interested in looking for employment.  If requested, an IH staff member can contact these institutes on your behalf.  Additionally, at the end of each course we hold a meeting with participtants to review all the current job openings.

It is important that you are familiar with what to expect when applying for work in Ecuador in terms of pay, benefits, working hours, etc.  All institutes are different in what they offer and ask of their teachers.  We can provide general guidance on what to expect and recommend some social media groups where you can access more information.  Nevertheless, we suggest that you do independent research.  In addition, you need to well-informed about what documents you should bring to facilitate the process of obtaining your desired visa.  You can find more information here.

On balance, we think that you will find that working in Ecuador is a great option in comparison to other South American countries when the cost of living and potential pay is taken into account.
