Rescinding job offers
« on: August 12, 2012, 05:24:52 am »
How common is it for BMOE to rescind job offers? I'm a little worried that I may have been offered a contract (which I've signed) simply for the MOE to cover its bases should another teacher drop out. Is this a legitimate fear? I have my visa, ticket, and everything set and I'm set up to leave in a few days but their behavior has me worried.

Sounds like you are set. You signed the contract, they gave that contract to immigration who issued your visa, right? so you should be good.

Yeaaaaa,  I think the OP is worried of a repeat of last year when a bunch of teachers got screwed when SMOE canceled a bunch of hires at the last minute.   Some teachers had already bought and paid for tickets when they found out they had no job.  SMOE did shuffle some of the people around.

As to the OP,  consider calling/email coordinator to see if any changes are coming up.  Also keep an eye out for any other jobs.  If things do go **** up, you can find a new job quickly.
Please consider adding some info to your "Personal Text"  Like type of school, visa status, county of origin.  These little bits of info can help people help you.

This is exactly what I'm worried about. Any tips for finding jobs quickly? My CRC will be expired by September.

Well if things do go bad and school does rescinds offer and you are in country.  I change over my visa from E-2 to a D-10 visa, that would allow you to stay in country and your CRC should be fine as you will not need paperwork.  That just not solve the problem of where you are to stay.  That is why if you have a could emergency fund you will not be really screwed.  Try have a couple thousand dollars in case.

So how do I get my name out there - that I'm in country and ready to start ASAP - without going through a recruiter? Dave's esl cafe does not seem the way to go.
