I am so sick of winter! I'd like to find work somewhere warm. My father works for air canada, so I can fly pretty much anywhere in the world for really cheap. I'm pretty much open for anything but I do have some woodworking experience. I have a degree and spent 3 years working as a cabinetmaker. Any suggestions??
Teach english in Asia? Malazia, Thailand, Hong Kong, South China or Vietnam????
I imagine I would need some courses/degree to teach though. I was thinking more of something I could do in the very near future, like now.lol.
If you are a native english speaker then you usually qualified enough. Look around on the web and you can see it yourself.
Have a go! It's fun. Im currently in China teaching English.
Is you're company looking for more english teachers?? If not where did you start your seach? Any good websites I should check out first? Oh, and how hard/long is it to get a work visa, or working holiday visa?

CHeck out Tefl.com
and esl cafe
for somewhere to start.
For some countries you need to do a Tefl certificate of some description. These usually take a month. You also usually need a degree. How hard a business visa is to get depends on the country. For many places its easy, it's the work permit that takes the time, but you can work while you apply for it.
Check out the Asia blogs on here. There are a lot of people currently teaching in China.
Tradesmen in carpentry and building industry are always in demand in Australia. You might wanna give it a go.
Just bear in mind that it also can get cold (but not Canada cold) in the state of NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
Good Luck !
I'm one of those people who blog on this site currently working as an English teacher in Asia. I'm the senior teacher in a school in Cirebon, Indonesia. We're looking for 2 native speaking teachers at the moment but we need the teachers to have a degree and a TEFL qualification. So, I would only consider you if you took a TEFL which included a minimum of 8 hours observed teaching practice. A TEFL certificate takes 4 weeks to do and will set you back about $US1000. The Indonesian authorities define a native speaker as someone with a passport from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand. The advert for our school is at Dave's ESL Cafe.
Although some schools in some countries will accept you without a degree or TEFL qualification I would recommend doing a TEFL before you apply for a job. I appreciate though that you may be looking for a more immediate start, so Josworld's suggestion of working as a tradesman in Australia may be a good option for you.
Key West for the winter. Allows you to bounce through the Caribbean easily.
Thanks a bunch guys, I'm looking into all these idea's
Work somewhere in ASIA. weather there is warm (but tolerable)
