Is it possible for me to apply to work in the United States as a teacher of science, English, history, sports, mathematics, and religion?

Yes, you can apply to work as a teacher in the United States with a degree in education. However, you may need to be willing to teach Spanish if there are no openings available in your specific area of expertise such as science, English, history, sports, mathematics, or religion.

Can I apply to work in the United States if my English level is not advanced?

Yes, it is possible to apply to work in the United States even if you do not have an advanced level of English. Generally, an intermediate B1 level is required to enable you to communicate during the job interview. Once you start working in the United States, it is also important that you can effectively communicate with the parents of your students. Therefore, it is recommended that your level of English be sufficient to speak with them.

Can I apply to work in the United States with less than two years of work experience?

No, applying for jobs in the United States normally requires a minimum of two years of work experience in the relevant area.

What are the documents needed to apply to international schools?

To apply to international schools, you need to prepare a cover letter, at least two letters of reference, and a suitable resume. If you need help, you can schedule a consultancy with an expert from Miss Berni team.

Is it difficult to receive job offers in European countries?

Receiving job offers in European countries can be more difficult, but it is not impossible. In general, employers look for teachers with more than 5 years of international experience, an advanced level of English, and postgraduate degrees in their field of specialization. If you have a European passport, this could increase your chances of getting a job in the region.

What visas can I apply for to work in the United States?

When receiving a job offer in the US, you may be eligible for a J1 visa if you work at a school, have an English certificate, possess more than 2 years of experience, and plan to stay in the US for a maximum of 5 years. Alternatively, you can apply for an H1B1 visa if you plan to live in the United States for the long term and both you and the school agree to obtain this type of visa.

What are the differences between the H1B1 and J1 visa?

The main differences between the H1B1 and J1 visas are that with the J1 visa, you can stay in the United States for a maximum of 5 years. Your dependents over the age of 18 (J2) can apply for a work permit without having a job, and during the first two years living in the country. On the other hand, with the H1B1 visa, you can stay as long as you have a job and, after a while, apply for a Green Card. Your dependents over the age of 18 do not obtain a work permit, and from the beginning, you pay the same taxes as a US citizen.

If I get a teaching job in the United States, can I bring my family with me?

Yes, you can bring all your immediate family members with you if they meet the corresponding visa requirements to enter the United States. Additionally, you must be legally married to your spouse and your children must be listed on their marriage certificate. It is important that each family member has their own visa to enter the country.

What is the age limit for applying?

Please note that there is no specific age limit for applying to jobs abroad. However, it's important to keep in mind that most employers typically seek candidates within the age range of 25-60. If you are over the age of 60, you can still apply and be considered for a position, depending on the employer's requirements and the experience and skills you possess.
