job ad

August 21st, 2008

There’s stuff I want to rant about, and stuff I want to rave about, all in the same post, but that has to wait because I’m busy repairing damage done to the big, university-supplied computer by the previous occupants before I can process some photos and perhaps even a video (no guarantees there, I have absolutely zilch experience working with video, and it took me forever to figure out how to record video yesterday afternoon as I was standing in the shadow of a certain famous bird’s nest desperately trying to capture the moment for posterity). I have a break to write a little something now because, having just deleted Rising, I’m downloading Avast!, and that takes some time.

Y’see, I’ve had the misfortune of working with Rising before and saw it do nothing useful about either preventing or curing viruses, and seeing the beginnings of the symptoms this morning, I thought I’d nip it in the bud and dump Rising for something a little more trustworthy.

But to get to the title of this post: This is a job ad. Our programme needs one more foreign teacher. We work with an Aussie university, but native dialect does not matter, so long as you are a native speaker of English with a good command of the language, no excessively strong accent, and a reasonable amount of experience in language teaching (and preferably language learning, too). The job takes a more English for Academic Purposes slant than most regular Chinese university foreign teacher positions, and you’d be required to teach some mixture of oral English, Academic Writing and Culture (being a basic introduction to the cultures and societies of the major English speaking countries). Naturally the exact mix would depend on your skills and experience. If you’re interested, leave a comment with a valid email address in the appropriate field (for crying out loud, don’ t put your email in the comment field, I won’t reply to you that way)- your email will not ever be made public, I will note your interest and send you an email requesting a CV/Resume. Just to make the location and level clear: we teach undergrads in a joint Aussie/China programme at a good university in the southeast corner of Beijing. We have good transportation links and easy and quick access to the rest of the city, being only 3km south of the CBD, having a multitude of useful bus routes passing close by and being very close to the southern end of the subway Line 10.

Right, download’s done, back to fixing things.
