    Would I be allowed when I write for PlanetCricket? I am a Cricket News Members Articles moderator for that section, so I don't think I'd do it on here...unless I could do the same articles on both sites, which I doubt.

    Would love to have:
    Chess player- I have began to see the psychology and skill in Chess which I would love to have.
    Historian- Learning about how life was like before our generation, ver interesting imo.

    Would hate to have:
    Police man- As CDM said, you get abuse from a lot of people.
    Fire-man- Extremely respectable job, but you risk your life every time you go into a burning house.

    It's worth pointing out that you will get abuse from people no matter what line of work you choose to go into tbh.

    I'm doing that at the moment in South Korea mate, I'd advise you to check out everything to do with your school etc before you go (email the teachers there now etc ect).

    It's not bad work, although to be honest I don't like it a great deal. I'm in a school with 40 kids though, so I struggle to stay motivated when the kids are behaving like little bastards.

    From what I can understand Japan is better. The kids can be quiet in class sometimes (if you have small classes). Private schools are generally run like businesses not education institutions...something that grates a little with me. Basically, depending on what the principal/business owner is like, you can end up somewhere where they support their teachers and give you the resources you need to teach or they can be greedy pricks whose only goal is to keep the students there so they make money. If anything goes wrong it's your fault and some of them are a little slack with their wage paying habits.

    Yeah, I was speaking to Casson the other day who was teaching in Korea a few years back, said much the same thing about the kids being a nightmare to keep under control.

    From what I hear from other people who have gone through the same people as I have to set up placements etc.. it's usually a very good company who are very helpful, so hopefully that is quite an encouraging sign. Thanks for the info though, I hadn't thought to email all the people overseas, so I'll defo have a look into that.

    I'm curious as to how the teaching role actually works mind, though it will obviously differ from school to school, how does it work where you are? I mean, do they just train you on how you should teach them and then plonk you down in a class and say "off you go"?, or are you more of an assistant to a senior teacher etc..?

    Dream job would be an Ad exec at an Ad Agency or as mentioned in another thread, working in the marketing departement of CA or similar which would combine the two things I'm passionate about.

    Hard slog for not much money in music. Got a mate who's trying to make a living as a musician. Plays gigs for various people across the north west, but spends most of the money he earns on petrol getting there. Also wrote the music that Salford City Reds rugby league team comes out to, and the cheeky beggers didn't give him a penny.

    Most of the people who hire him to play with them are absolute ****s too, from my experience.
