Golf in the Middle East

Are there any countries in the ME where an IT could enjoy affordable golf? Trying to broaden my options and have always disavowed going there but perhaps this is a positive aspect of the ME? Just wondering.

Re: Can someone explain the Spanish tax scheme to me please.

Thanks for the response. Its the declaration of foreign assets that gets me. My savings are relatively small but I do have some dividends and for the Spanish government to tax them irks me. Anyways thanks for the detail. At least I can get a general idea of my pay now.

Re: Insurance Question

I have used IMG. You can tailor the policy to your needs and budget.

Can someone explain the Spanish tax scheme to me please.

Say I make 30k. How much would take home be? I have found conflicting info online regarding income tax and social security. And I have to declare foreign assets, that worries me.

Re: Best Recruitment Sites

I never expected to sit back and get contacted without reaching out to schools first. LIke psy said it was the best for me at the time, even if not appropriate.

Re: IB certificate or workshop?

I'm not a recruiter but I would think having strong academic background in your field would be crucial. I have have taken 3 cat1s in the last year and must say they are pretty useless except for the acknowledgement of completion. I would venture I could be successful on an online one not in my field...

Re: Best Recruitment Sites

I was just frustrated with them, because in hindsight there was little chance I was going to get hired by a decent school. So that's a plus if ISS doesn't just take anyone. The bottom rung schools were the same ones on TIE and I was surprised SEARCH represents some really crappy schools. Then again ...

Re: Best Recruitment Sites

I can see how ISS may be better than Search. I base this on my experience with Search. First off, I sought out advice considering my situation and if it was worthwhile to join search. I was assured it was, yet it became clear the only bites I was getting were from terrible schools which should not b...

Teaching in New Zealand

I was just wondering if anyone has taught there and what it is like. There seems to be a lot of jobs in New Zealand and I was wondering why. There doesn't seem to be any reviews of schools tho, perhaps not many international schools?

Re: ISS or Search

For me personally Search was useless. Perhaps it was my personal situation at play somewhat. For me the schools on Tie were essentially the same as on search. My search advisor was useless and clearly just out to feather his nest. In the end I found an awesome job posted on a free board.

Re: Health Insurance Providers

That's a good of looking at it. If you are somewhere with lower costs it would make sense.

Re: Health Insurance Providers

A lot of tourist policies are not applicable to people who are not still eligible for health care back home. I am not. Actually I did have a local policy...and which may be best again. I did however have to purchase insurance whenever I traveled and went back home...which adds up. I maybe spent $500...

Health Insurance Providers

The school I'm headed to doesn't offer very good coverage so I was wondering if people could list their providers. Thanks.
