    Thank you so much for the insightful information. It really helped me out a lot! I have never been outside of the U.S. no outside the state I live in. But I have always wanted to go to Thailand (Bangkok specifically) and work there. But I really don’t understand what sorts of documents you need in order to work there. Would getting TEFL, CELTA or TESOL. certificate benefit more than a four-year university degree?

      The CELTA will make you untouchable. For me it’s the best certification to have. Also, glad you found this content helpful!

    Thanks for the informative article.

    I wanted to ask please the best way to find work in Thailand not having a college degree but with certification in CELTA. Is it better to travel there and search or is it possible to find anything online. I’m just aware most won’t be advertising that they will hire anyone not having a college degree.

    Thank you!

      The best way to find work in Thailand is to have a college degree. As mentioned in the previous comment I personally believe the CELTA is huge in the eyes of employers. In regards to finding work out here I would say if you’re new just look online. Coming to Thailand first then looking for work has its advantages, but it’s a bit of a risky game if you have no experience or certifications( i.e. degree, tefl, celta, etc.).

      Also, Yes most companies won’t advertise “you don’t need a degree”. Even though half of these schools put on a front. The idea is that you fake it until you make it. I have a good friend from England who is working without a degree right now, but he can’t get a work-permit. This means visa runs every 90 days…
