I assume that the 15,000 Dhs is monthly--that's pretty good. I have over 10 years of various experience teaching ESL as well as a TESL certificate from a university in the U.S. I plan to look for a job in the UAE starting next year. Could I expect more than 15,000 (without "perks")?
What sort of "perks" would be negotiable? I suppose airfare and housing is standard when hiring from abroad. Also, I will be coming with my wife. Should I expect the school to pay for my wife's airfare as well as mine? In that case, I imagine both of our visas would be arranged by the employer. Then I would want us both to have insurance, too. All considered, can I still hope for as much as 15,000 Dhs--in addition to these perks?
By the way, how well is the housing usually furnished?
I am eager to find out about these things. Even though I've lived abroad quite a bit, this would be my first time working in the Middle East. Please tell me anything you can.
