Tamal, a Non-Native English Speaking Teacher from India, said:
"Hi, hello everyone, I am Tamal from India. Here, I would like to share something about how I got hired by a famous international school in Afghanistan, which I believe will be inspiring for all aspiring teachers like me, especially those who would like to start teaching as their profession despite spending years in other professions like engineering or management.
Switched from engineering to teaching career a bit late, I found that landing a job was like finding a needle in a haystack as my lack of experience was a big hindrance in my way. Apart from this, the ongoing corona pandemic has made the job market completely dry, meaning we are stuck home, no matter how experienced you are. In a nutshell, getting hired during the pandemic was a wild goose chase for all.
Nevertheless, I did not give up hope completely as I always knew there would be a way out and it really worked the moment I came across Cheraine, the founder of Staffroom on Facebook. Then, on hearing my problem, namely getting stuck in pandemic limbo, she, without having to hesitate, took a special interest in my case and eventually, after a day or two, she asked me to subscribe to her website Staffroom, which was specially built for 'Non-Native English Speaking Teachers' as well as the subject teachers, which I did. Then, as soon as I did it accordingly, my email started getting inundated with very exciting job offers from across Asia and elsewhere.
In the meantime, she kept on giving me inputs on how to prepare for an interview and all and honestly, I followed her pieces of advice, in doing which I got finally hired by an international school, Afghanistan, where currently, I am teaching as a science teacher at their high school. By the way, it slipped my mind to add that she has mainly designed her website staffroom for non-native teachers, who very often face either discrimination at workplaces or fall short of the right skill in the English language.
It was awesome taking advice from Cheraine as she is the right person to consult with and who has got all the works in this field. I will always recommend my fellow job seekers to go contact/ chat with Cheraine and get your problems resolved as her inputs can only help you land a dream job, the job you have been looking for these days."
When you learn how to write your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile in a way that is PROVEN to get you MORE interviews and job offers, you can spend less time job searching and more time teaching or leading your school, because that's what you really love.

Hi, I'm Cheraine
I'm an IB and IGCSE Business and Economics teacher, plus Career Counsellor who has taught in Indonesia since 2018. I've got an MBA (Exec) and post graduate Certificate in Careers Education & Development. Before becoming a teacher I had a career in recruitment and property sales.

Carmen - Non-Native English Speaking Primary Teacher - Malaysia
I was stuck with re-writing my CV for the longest time as I struggled to include information that would highlight my credentials/ skills more effectively. I decided to sign up for one of the resume writing packages by Staffroom when I came across one of the testimonials and tips shared by Cheraine on LinkedIn. The biggest takeaway was discovering how resumes were processed through a system which made me reconsider what relevant phrases and keywords I should include. Additionally, Cheraine gave really succinct and detailed explanations on how to highlight key achievements/ skills while omitting irrelevant/ repetitive/ common information in the resume. Cheraine's explanations were also structured and simple, which made it easy to follow through and comprehend. I definitely felt more confident presenting my resume to prospective employers while applying for jobs. The end result for me - 3 interviews and 1 job offer from a higher tier international school. I would highly recommend the resume writing package for any educator who wants to rework/ revamp his/ her resume.
Rebecca - Music Director - Singapore
"Cheraine helped me translate my resume into stories that are engaging and interesting and that show my strengths. She coached me on how to show myself in the best light even when asked difficult interview questions. There is no doubt that my success interviewing for my new job is a direct result of her help. I recommend her without reservation."
Everett - Athletic Director - China
"I attended an online resume writing course with Cheraine and was very impressed with the presentation and content. She not only presented a resume presentation style, she justified it with her experience in the industry to support why we should make adjustments. Her style was light, fun, and filled with practical suggestions for building a better, high quality resume. As a result of the changes I made to my resume, I was ultimately hired at a school that may be my dream school. I would strongly suggest that any educator who is thinking of shifting positions to at least take the resume course, if not the full course she offers. Definitely check out the great resources on the site and consider the great options and services she provides to educators."

I look forward to working with her again in the future and recommend her unreservedly."

"Attending my first Resume Masterclass I was a bit sceptical at the start, but after listening to the professional nature of Cheraine explaining the process in regards to ATS tracking systems, it was made clear why I wasn't getting the interviews I was hoping for.

Thanks for opening my eyes."
