Your dream life is waiting
In 2018, I quit my 9 – 5 office job and my boyfriend, our dog and I embarked on the adventure of a lifetime: Travelling through Latin America with no return flight home.
Although we had no idea where we would end up, we knew for certain that we were unwilling to wait for retirement to enjoy life, and we needed to start living every moment to the fullest.
But savings can only go so far, and by the end of the year I started to have financial worries. I decided I needed a steady stream of income that provided security, yet was flexible so that I could still have freedom and enjoy travelling.
I wanted to find an online job that I could take with me wherever we went, instead of just picking up a serving job at a local restaurant in each new town we moved to.
After countless hours searching online and talking to others I’d met abroad, out of nowhere the perfect opportunity presented itself. Even before I had finished reading the entire job description something went off inside of me that told me THIS was IT!
No formal qualifications necessary
Flexible hours – part or full time, you completely decide your own schedule
Work from anywhere with an internet connection, even in your pjs if you’d like :)
Up to $22 USD an hour (with lots of opportunities for bonuses), which goes a long way while travelling
Access to unlimited training programs, professional development and company support
Then I saw that Forbe’s Magazine had ranked it the #1 best remote work company to work for in 2018!
To say I was excited is an understatement.
Work where you want, when you want
I teach kids English online and I couldn’t be happier.
The company that I work for is VIPKID. With over 70,000 teachers worldwide (and counting!), the company has won countless awards in employee satisfaction, social good and more.
No formal teaching qualifications are required (which is different from most ESL programs) because they provide such comprehensive training that prepares you for success on the job, all absolutely free.
From the time I started training, it was under a month before I was teaching my first real class to my first real student (Max, who I still teach today!).
Besides knowing you’re having a real and meaningful impact on these kids, teaching them is also a hell of a lot more fun than most “adult” jobs!
I knew VIPKID was the right opportunity for me, but unfortunately in this day and age you never really know if what you read online is painting the true picture of something. I had a few questions creep in that I needed answered before fully committing to this new path.
Fortunately, I found a VIPKID teacher online and connected with her through Facebook. I was worried that I’d be a nuisance to her, but she was actually very excited to hear from me.
She shared some helpful resources that I couldn’t find online, but by far the most valuable thing she gave me was an “AMA” (Ask Me Anything) Skype call. Totally free! We were able to go through all of my remaining questions, and it was inspiring to hear about her own amazing travel adventures that were made possible by teaching online.
She painted a true picture of the reality of VIPKID (sharing honestly about the many pros and of course a few natural challenges that I was confident I was fine with) and as soon as we got off the phone I went to my computer and began my application.
If it wasn’t for her I might not have become a VIPKID teacher, and I still talk to her this day. I couldn’t be more grateful for her ongoing support, and for my new life with VIPKID.
Now it’s time for me to pay forward what was so generously given to me.
