most of my typing is hardly intelligible to anyone but myself (and of course rife with grammatical errors).
As I said above, you don't know who is reading PolishForums. To openly admit that 'most' of your typing is intelligible and rife with grammatical errors isn't exactly doing you any favours, is it?
Additionally, in a follow up post I only made reference to the fact that my Juris Doctor qualifies me to teach American law. Which it does and people who lack a Juris Doctor, at least in the US, can't teach it.
You keep applying US rules to Poland. This is not a country known for fair hiring practices.
I also do believe that I could teach how to write a contract that complies with Polish and European Law since that is what I studied at the University of Warsaw during my study abroad program as well as what I did at both Salans and SPCG.
Forgive me for being cynical, but a year abroad combined with internships is highly unlikely to give you a thorough grounding in Polish and European law. It might give you an idea of how the institutions all relate to each other, and you might be able to make sense of a contract - but I doubt that you'd be able to actually write a contract compliant with Polish law. People here study for 8 years to be able to do that - and you think you could write one after a year?
Again, I very much appreciate your commentary but if I had to guess, you're probably less educated than me which is why you're being so aggressive in trying to make me feel inadequate.
I do love when people make mistaken assumptions.
I am a Pole. I was born in Poland to Polish parents and, even though I am a naturalized US citizen, I am very much "in the know" regarding the Polish culture. My entire family is Polish. I'm not even first generation.
Which still doesn't qualify you as having experience. As I said above, Asian experience in teaching isn't really considered to be worth anything in Europe.
So thanks but I'd bet I know more about the Polish culture than the average native English speaker whose exposure to the Polish culture involves getting drunk at Meta and teaching privates.
What does their drinking habits have to do with anything? As I've said above - someone with the CELTA, a poor BA and experience in Europe will always be ahead of you because they're a proven quantity when it comes to English teaching. No-one here is going to be impressed by an American with a law degree - they're looking for people who understand even the basics of classroom management and have a qualification that shows that.
Anyway, I'm hoping there might be a possibility that some employers in Warsaw would not only find my Juris Doctor appealing but also that I am a native English speaker with US citizenship, am fluent in Polish, have Polish citizenship (no working visas required here), and have experience teaching EFL to both advanced students (university level students) as well as beginners (7 year olds who don't understand a single word in English).
You have Asian experience, which isn't particularly well regarded in Poland, not least because the culture difference is immense. Your piece of paper is pretty worthless without work experience behind it, and your lack of real knowledge about Polish law is also a barrier to finding well paying employment. Of course, you can always find a job that pays 30zl an hour in a Callan school.
Is there some holy grail message board with job postings that I am unaware of?
Any good job in Poland doesn't get advertised, in general.
Out of curiosity, what would your salary expectations be? If you give us an idea of what you're willing to accept, perhaps we can point you in the right direction. Would you regard 40zl an hour as an insult?
