Abstract: Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) is an ever-shifting job market, influenced by a variety of factors from the local to the global level. Graduate students in linguistics and foreign languages need to be aware of this and know how to market themselves in a competitive job market. Topics covered in this talk will include an overview of the ESL/EFL job market, how and where to search for teaching jobs, the types of jobs generally available to recent graduates, the differences between curriculum vitae and resumes, and how to develop a strong CV as a graduate student. While this talk will focus on ESL/EFL, many of the concepts discussed are relevant to other language teaching jobs and academia at large.
