In a few days I'll be heading to South East Asia to look for work as an EFL teacher. I have no experience, but I do have:

- a BA with a major in Linguistics
- CELTA with an A grade pass

I'm 26 and have been working in IT since I left university. I'm wondering if anyone can help me with pointers on how to compile an effective EFL resume.

I am Karthick from India and am new to this group. I have just completed an online 100 hrs TEFL certification. I am not a native speaker but English had been my first language in school and college. I have over 5 yrs of work expericence as a computer Engineer but no formal teaching language experience. I have been training the new employees As part of my job. During this period I realized how much I liked to teach and hence wated to pursue this full time. I would like to know about job offerings for near native speakers of English. I am also looking for an internship position if any.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Good piece of writing, but I would like to suggest that your resume also must not appear bulky, Even tables can be also used for simplicity and look. I think appearence also does matter so jumbling should be avoided.
